Oasis' Noel Gallagher said WHAT about video games?

In a new interview with Noel Gallagher, Guitar World writer Joe Bosso posed this question to the Oasis guitarist:

GW What do you think of the Guitar Hero and Rock Band games?

In typical Gallagher fashion, his answer was of the no-holds-barred variety:

GALLAGHER If they put little plastic guitars into kids’ hands and helps fire their imaginations, I think that’s a good thing. I guess it’s harmless fun, isn’t it? I’d rather that genre of video game than somebody getting their fucking head chopped off with a Samurai sword while getting fucked up the ass by a goblin with a laser. Do you know what I mean? [laughs] Try looking that up on a web site. But like I said, if it gets kids interested in playing the guitar…wow! It’s better than trying to behead aliens.
