Jimi Hendrix could get his own Rock Band edition

Jimi Hendrix's stepsister detailed a new deal with Sony Music to distribute the rocker's music "through every type of media"

In an interview with the LA Times posted Valentine's Day, Jimi Hendrix's stepsister detailed a new deal with Sony Music to distribute the rocker's music "through every type of media," including a new edition of Rock Band that Janie Hendrix says should appear this year.

Billboard.com drew attention to the quote yesterday with speculation on how Rock Band developer Harmonix could produce both a Green Day: Rock Band game and a Hendrix game at once:

...[C]oming out with a Hendrix game this year makes the most sense. There's certainly no shortage of Hendrix-related material coming out in the coming months as the 40th anniversary of his death approaches this fall. In March, Sony Music will put out a collection of previously unreleased studio recordings, and a special edition iPod Touch bearing the artist's image is also in the works.

It's not clear from the original article, however, that Hendrix would get his own game in Rock Band instead of a downloadable content pack.

Harmonix could not be reached for comment at time of press.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

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.
