Guitar Hero: World Tour to feature Jimi Hendrix

Play Purple Haze!

Activision confirmed Thursday that Guitar god Jimi Hendrix is headed to Guitar Hero: World Tour.

It's only fitting that guitar legend Jimi Hendrix be featured in a rhythm game featuring guitars, and Activision confirmed Thursday that's exactly what's going to happen with the upcoming Guitar Hero: World Tour.

Activision's answer to Harmonix's Rock Band will have a number of Jimi Hendrix songs, and will feature the late rocker's avatar, similar to what Activision has done with Guitar Hero: Aerosmith.

The Hendrix track list will include "The Wind Cries Mary" and a live version of "Purple Haze," which were provided by the Hendrix Experience, the estate that now controls the artist's songs. Other Hendrix tunes will be released in the future as DLC.

According to the Associated Press, this is the first time the likeness of Jimi Hendrix will be featured in a video game.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
