Satriani, Vai, Buckethead headed for Guitar Hero III, Hendrix to World Tour


Looks like Activision is ready for some blood in the battle against Rock Band; after scoring Van Halen and the Eagles as exclusives, they have now secured the lengendary Jimi Hendrix into their lineup for Guitar Hero: World Tour. Hendrix will be a playable character in the game, and two master tracks have also been confirmed to be in the game, with more tracks coming later as downloadable content:

  • “Purple Haze (Live)” (recorded in 1969 at the San Diego Sports Arena)
  • “The Wind Cries Mary”

In Legends of Rock news, three songs are set to debut this Thursday on Guitar Hero III. We honestly think the tracklist speaks for itself:

  • “Surfing with the Alien” by Joe Satriani
  • “For the Love of God” by Steve Vai
  • “Soothsayer” by Buckethead

This “Virtuoso Pack” will be released this Thursday. While no pricing info was provided, we can assume it will be $6.25 like previous 3-track packs.
