Pick Up that Guitar and Talk to Me

Guitar Hero IIIMy whole family loves the Wii - and no surprise, Guitar Hero III is by far our favorite. There's quite a bit of shock and a little bit of pride when your five-year-old son starts singing Talk Dirty To Me and claims that One is his favorite song on the game. So I'm intrigued by today's announcement of an Aerosmith Guitar Hero that will be released this summer. It's not that I like Aerosmith. I really don't. Two good songs (this one and that one) early in their loooong career and plenty of novelty songs since hardly impress me. Nonetheless, the concept of an artist-focused Guitar Hero takes the franchise in an exciting and likely lucrative direction.

Of course I'm already thinking to the next installment. It needs to be a band with mass appeal and guitar hero status. I think it'd be pretty fun to play Edge or Peter Buck, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

Excuse me. I have to go jam to Slayer. You understand.
