KORN's JONATHAN DAVIS A 'Guitar Hero' Convert

Launch Radio Networks reports: You would think a video game in which players use a guitar would have no appeal to a professional musician, but for KORN lead singer Jonathan Davis, that's just not the case. Davis told Launch he's become addicted to Guitar Hero, a video game that asks participants to play along in time to various rock tracks from the '70s through today. "I do love it," he said. "I think it's an awesome game, and it's so challenging once you start getting up to higher levels. Some of the s***'s harder than playing guitar."

KORN is currently recording its eighth studio album and plans to release it this summer.

The band will then headline the 2007 Family Values tour starting in mid-July in support of the album. EVANESCENCE, HELLYEAH, ATREYU, TRIVIUM and FLYLEAF are also on the bill.

Guitar Hero 2 for the Xbox 360 gaming system was released last week. The Playstation 2 version was released in November. The game features tracks from GUNS N' ROSES, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, NIRVANA, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, WOLFMOTHER, ALICE IN CHAINS, FOO FIGHTERS, and many more.
