18 07 2008

That’s right, for all you Jimi Hendrix fans out there, including tokagowa, he’s heading for Guitar Hero: World Tour. The Seattle company, Experience Hendrix, which controls Jimi’s rock music legacy, is providing Hendrix’s music, including masters such as “Purple Haze,” “Foxy Lady,” and “Little Wing,” and likeness in the new Guitar Hero game. Aaron Grant, spokesman for Activision and RedOctane told the Press:

“It’s the first time Hendrix’s likeness will be showcased in the game.”

A playable avatar of Hendrix, as well as the song “The Wind Cries Mary” and a LIVE version of “Purple Haze” recorded in 1969 at the San Diego Sports Arena, will be included in GH 4. Besides these in-game songs and what not, Experience Hendrix provided Activision and RedOctane with songs that will be released in the future as downloadable content, Grant said.
