Guitar Hero: Aerosmith is already out and Guitar Hero: Metallica is coming but are these the only bands getting the full-game, plastic guitar treatment? Not according to Aerosmith Guitarist Brad Whitford. "We were all pretty aware of how popular the game was, and being the first band to have our own version of it seemed pretty exciting. We're the first band of many," Whitford told Rolling Stone.
So who else are included in this "many?" Don't look for Led Zeppelin to make an appearance any time soon: The band's management says they don't want to give the master tapes of Zep's music to an outside company. The Beatles are a strong contender. Apparently, their management is talking to both Guitar Hero and Rock Band, although their music has yet to appear in either series.
We think the Rolling Stones could support a whole game, and we'd love to see genre specific games as well, like, says Guitar Hero: Punk and New Wave. Or, how about Funk Band? Anyone?
