Led Zep Says 'No' To Music Games


Posted July 5, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

We've been wanting to impersonate Led Zeppelin in a videogame since the release of  Guitar Hero. But it looks like it's never going to happen.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Jimmy Page, and his bandmates have repeatedly turned down offers from both Activision and MTV to use their tunes in either Rock Band or Guitar Hero music games. The band isn't "comfortable with the prospect of granting outsiders access to its master tapes."  "It ain't about the money," says Led Zep manager Peter Mensch.

More interesting info from the Wall Street Journal: These bands are all in talks to have content included in music games (either Rock Band or Guitar Hero):

  • Van Halen,
  • the Eagles,
  • Steely Dan
  • Guns N' Roses

What games their music will be available in hasn't been announced, nor has whether a band-specific games are coming from these groups been determined, but it's fun to imagine what Guitar Hero: Steely Dan would be like.
