Charlie Daniels Lashes Out At Guitar Hero
Taken from Charlie Daniels blog, “The Soup Box.”
Actually the game really has a dark side complete with grotesque monsters on stage with the band, strange, eerie lighting effects and all manner of weird things popping up on the stage.
I had a rude awakening recently when I looked at a video game.
It was called Guitar Hero and is wildly popular with the younger set. I heard they had used one of my songs but I hadn’t seen it until recently and when I did I was in for some unpleasant surprises.
The game features a rock band playing heavy metal covers of different songs and enables the player to become part of the band, pushing colored buttons on a faux guitar neck which correspond with
colors going by on the screen as the song plays.
