Will Jimi Hendrix Be the Next Guitar Hero Game?

In a recent conversation with Rolling Stone, Slash talked about the Guitar Hero franchise and how he pushed Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler to be a part of the game, and also mentioned how a Jimi Hendrix installment of Guitar Hero may be in the works.

"Well, having the Aerosmith guys do it was very cool 'cause Aerosmith's one of the bands I was heavily influenced by," said the guitarist. "And Metallica's doing it, that's great. Those are two ones that I think gives it some credibility. And they're doing a Hendrix one, which is great."

So far Activision is mum on whether or not Hendrix will be the franchise's next big installment, but we'll keep you posted.
