Slash slips: Guitar Hero Hendrix in the works?

Jimi Hendrix - Image 1Did Slash just let slip another Guitar Hero title in the works? It appears that he did in an interview with Rolling Stone. Who are they doing this time? It’s certified rock n’ roll guitar guru Jimi Hendrix.

Slash - Image 1Is Activision making a Guitar Hero Hendrix? This is new to our ears, actually. There has been no clue whatsoever of a Hendrix title – until Slash’s interview with Rolling Stones, that is.

It started out innocuous enough. The rock n’ roll magazine wanted to know who he’d like to see on Guitar Hero and if he feels more invested in the game because he was “the original guy”. This was his reply:

Well, having the Aerosmith (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii) guys do it was very cool ’cause Aerosmith’s one of the bands I was heavily influenced by. And Metallica‘s doing it, that’s great. Those are the two ones that I think gives it some credibility. And they’re doing a Hendrix one, which is great. (emphasis ours)

What was that he said? “They’re doing a Hendrix one”? Well then that’s definitely one good great reason to pick up Guitar Hero if you haven’t yet. Although… we’d have to question if Slash meant the Guitar Hero World Tour project that was announced a couple of months back, where Jimi Hendrix tracks have been confirmed to be included. Or is this an entirely new title, like Metallica’s and Aerosmith’s?

We’re definitely looking forward to a confirmation on this little Slash-slip anytime soon. And most certainly, we hope that Activision will do more than just include Hendrix tracks in a Guitar Hero title. We think good ol’ Jimi having his own title will be just swell. What say you, Activision?

In the meantime, have some little Jimi Hendrix goodness with this Foxy Lady video. At least get an idea what kind of riffs you’ll be up to if and when Guitar Hero Hendrix does come out. Spandex pants not included.
