    Yesterday, I spoke with former Microsoft vice president Ed Fries shortly before his session at The Ayzenberg Group's [A] List Summit.

    It's time once again for this week's music DLC roundup. As always, lots of back catalogue stuff heading to Rock Band 2 for Wii this week, most notably several tracks by the Pixies and Spinal Tap.

  • Jimmy Page And Jack White Don't Like Guitar Hero

    It's interesting to find out how rockers feel about music games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band. Yeah, they're just games, and we just have fun with them, but it must be surreal to have your art, job and craft appear in a video game. If you've poured your life-blood and passion into a musical composition, it must be really, really weird to have...

    During a recent PBS interview with Tavis Smiley, purple-clad rock and roll enigma Prince said he turned down the opportunity to have his music appear in Guitar Hero. Say it ain't so, Prince.
