E3 2007: Guitar Heroes to take on GunsNRoses legend

Velvet Revolver star Slash has agreed to be an in-game end-of-level boss in Activision’s Guitar Hero III.

The former Guns’N’Roses axeman has lent his likeness to the game – as well as penning and performing the title music.

According to Reuters, the news was revealed at Activision’s E3 media briefing where the scraggy-haired, chain-smoking rocker told the crowd:

"Funnily enough, I got hooked on Guitar Hero in a tour bus and I just fell in love with it.

"I guess at some point our merchandisers and our manager had discussions about stuff I might want to get involved in and Guitar Hero was one of them.

"It’s pretty heavy, pretty loud, all the things Guitar Hero is. It’s got a very addicting quality to it and anybody who knows me knows that applies to me. Out of all the things I’ve been involved with, other than being in a band, this is definitely the coolest.”

Guitar Hero III is due for release later this year.
