(Radio.com) Guitar Hero is making a comeback this year with its first new offering in five years, Guitar Hero Live. And the tracklisting will be lead by six-string heroes including Pantera, Rolling Stones and Gary Clark Jr.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Jamie Jackson, owner of Freestyle Games (the company that puts out Guitar Hero, and who partnered with Activision for Guitar Hero Live), said, “It’s been 10 years since the first Guitar Hero game came out. When you think of it like that, and think about how much the musical landscape has changed since then – that’s where we’ve been able to explore some new types of musical style as well. Guitar music is broader than it’s ever been – so we’re reflecting that in the range of music on offer.”

Meanwhile, Rolling Stone reports that among the new features on the revitalized game are a more realistic controller/instrument and a 24-hour music video network called GHTV, “The world’s first playable music video network.”
