Thanks to the release of Valleys of Neptune, a collection of unearthed studio material, legendary rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix is enjoying a resurgence in popularity some 40 years after his death. I mean, the guy's on the cover of Rolling Stone, for God's sake! Actually, now that I think about it, that probably doesn't mean much anymore. Just trust me when I say that he's totes famous all over again.
Cue the vultures! The aforementioned dinosaur of print music media have announced that Hendrix's brilliant second album Axis: Bold as Love will be released in its entirety as "Rock Band"-compatible downloadable content, with other albums to follow. Now you too can be a Rock God! Just don't set the little plastic guitar on fire; it's not good for the environment.
From Experience Hendrix CEO (and Jimi's occasionally embattled adoptive sister) Janie Hendrix:
Much like Jimis music, we feel that Rock Band represents an amazing, innovative medium for music discovery and interaction that can have a profound affect on those who experience it ... We are extremely pleased to be able to have Jimi Hendrixs genius musical legacy continue to live on and touch people the world over through Rock Band.
I don't mean to be one of those guys, but I'm dreading the day when they announce the Nevermind DLC. Oh capitalism, what hath ye wrought!?
