SLASH Talks 'Guitar Hero'; Video Available

Former GUNS N' ROSES and current VELVET REVOLVER guitarist Slash recently spoke to the Artisan News Service about his involvement with Guitar Hero III.

"I think it's a huge honor to be a part of this game," he said. "It's like I actually represent electric guitar to a legion of kids that are into this game, which has got to be the most popular game out right now — and I've been asked to put my brand on it, which is very, very cool."

Slash was also asked about his familiarity with the game, and what it was like to be animated for certain sections of the game itself.

"The first time I ever played Guitar Hero — I had never seen it, but I heard about it, and I heard about all these people who were raving lunatics with this thing, and having parties and the whole nine — so I started playing it, and I got hooked on it from that point," he said. "And then I get this phone call about being involved with the new Guitar Hero game. I just told them how enthusiastic I would be to get involved, and they seemed the same and that's how it basically went from there. My motion capture experience; there's a dozen people and suits to put on and little balls all over the place — pretty much the goofiest suit I can recall wearing. It's seemed weird to do it without interacting with a band and stuff. I'll be interested to see what it looks like when it's done. The last few hours of walking around and doing all these little poses with this suit on will probably all be worth it."
