Jimi Hendrix: Rock Band Rumours Dispelled By Harmonix
Written Thursday, February 18, 2010 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
There's been a lot of crosstown traffic on the internet with rumours that have been circulating regarding the prospect of a Jimi Hendrix Rock Band title in the works.
The rumour surfaced yesterday following an LA Times interview with Jimi Hendrix's stepsister, Janie in which there was a discussion about distributing the guitar legend's music via other media, reading thus: "Sony vowed to make his music 'available through every type of media' — including a new edition of 'Rock Band' that Janie Hendrix says should appear before the end of this year."
Harmonix has responded by refuting the existence of a standalone Rock Band title featuring Jimi Hendrix's music, but they did have the following to say to Kotaku:
"While we have not made any official announcements regarding Jimi Hendrix and Rock Band, we are excited to say that we are in discussions to bring more of his music to our platform. Stay tuned."
We'd say that the safest bet is that Harmonix is trying to negotiate Jimi Hendrix tracks for future DLC. We'll just have to wait and see what happens. But remember, castles made of sand, fall in the sea, eventually.
