Don't hold your breath for Guitar Hero Led Zeppelin folks. Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has slammed the popular Guitar Hero franchise.
During a press conference in Los Angeles, the guitarist said that he didn't feel video games are the ideal way to expose people to music or to teach them to play instruments.
"You think of the drum part that John Bonham did on Led Zeppelin's first track on the first album, Good Times Bad Times," Page said. "How many drummers in the world can play that part, let alone on Christmas morning?"
"It's depressing to have a label come and tell you that [Guitar Hero] is how kids are learning about music and experiencing music" Jack WhiteWhite went on to say that "It's depressing to have a label come and tell you that [Guitar Hero] is how kids are learning about music and experiencing music." While he added that he doesn't try to limit "which format people should get their music in…if you have to be in a video game to get in front of them, that's a little sad."
Hhmmm, now let me see. In the upcoming Guitar Hero 5, due out in September, The White Stripes song Blue Orchid is featured. So Mr.White is clearly not overly bothered in truth how people find out about his turgid dross.
