Jimi Hendrix Coming To Rock Band

It has been revealed that the entire Jimi Hendrix Experience album Axis: Bold as Love ( less “EXP”)  will be released as DLC for Rock Band on 30th March.

Furthermore, “Valleys of Neptune,” a new unheard song will also be released as DLC. Obviously adding Jimi Hendrix and a new song is a massive coup for MTV and Harmonix and it seems like they are pleased.

Speaking to Rolling Stone Magazine, MTV Games’ Paul DeGooyer said,

It’s a whole new level of difficulty unto itself. The thing about these tracks is if you’re a Hendrix fan you know that really what powered that vibe is that he kind of just closed his eyes and flowed from his fingers, and we really tried very hard, especially on the expert level, to recreate that effect.

MTV and Harmonix actually have a deal to release further Hendrix tracks as well as Avatars and his instruments. So if you are a fan of his guitar powered music then you will no doubt be pleased with this news.
