Rocker Slash was a boss in Guitar Hero III and he played guitar in a little group called Guns 'N Roses, so when the man talks rock, we listen. And we post.
Rolling Stone recently caught up with Slash and asked who he'd like to see in a future Guitar Hero game. Here's the quote:
"I played with Cheap Trick a bunch of times. Cheap Trick would be cool; Judas Priest would be cool. James Gang would be cool [laughs]. For fans’ sake I’m sure an Yngwie [Malmsteen] record would be sort of cool. It would be definitely a Guitar Hero exercise. You have to understand how the game works and what band really fits in to that, because you have to be able to do something interesting with the fingers, so it can’t be anything overly simple. It’s gotta have some sort of involvement as far as chord changes and solos. AC/DC is probably the top one. They don’t need the boost, but that would be the top one. That’s really the ultimate guitar-driven band when it comes down to it."
Cheap Trick, Priest, James Gang, Yngwie and AC/DC--yeah, we'd play that game. Which overlooked act would you like to see in a future game?
