    Default van halen guitar hero in the works?

    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1214...googlenews_wsj
    The success of Guitar Hero and Rock Band have made them important new sources of income for bands. Irving Azoff, whose Front Line Management manages Aerosmith and other major artists, says videogame deals can be "much more lucrative than anything you can do in the record business." Industry executives say bands can receive millions of dollars up front, plus a generous royalty on sales. A person close to Aerosmith says the band expects to make more money from the game title than it has from any of its dozen-plus studio albums.


    Mr. Azoff says music videogames can also help his clients by boosting traditional music sales.
    Clients including Van Halen, the Eagles, Steely Dan and Guns N' Roses "all have deals of varying types in the works with one or the other or both of these companies," says Mr. Azoff, referring to the makers of Guitar Hero and Rock Band.

    hmm....could be interesting..

    Van Halen has a few songs upcoming in Guitar Hero 4. That's probably what he's talking about.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    It's easy to make some fast cash by putting "Jump" and "Panama" on Guitar Hero.

    But another option would be to do something for your loyal fans by putting out a new CD, unreleased tracks, a live album or a DVD from the vaults...


    So here's the alternative:

    Easy Fast Cash or... Pleasing your most loyal fans...


    Hmmm... which one will they decide on... I have a hunch but I'm not telling

    I am a guitar player who sucks at "Guitar Hero" (most of us do because the control is not like a real guitar) and I'd totally support and purchase Guitar Hero: Van Halen. I think it'd be a great idea! You don't know how many kids are influenced by the previous forty-six GH games. It's amazing!

    My cousin is in the legal printing/reproduction business in L.A. As soon as I read this, I tipped him off to be on the lookout for anything: proposals, contracts, etc. He's tipped me off before...
