Led Zeppelin Just Says No-Again
Zep retains the undisputed heavyweight title for not jumping on the bandwagon. From Wired.
Despite the success of Guitar Hero and Rock Band, you won’t see Led Zeppelin’s iconic tunes pop up in either game any time soon, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The band, specifically Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, is not comfortable giving gaming companies access to the group’s master recordings — a necessary step in adding the band to any game.
They are NOT going to tour, you do NOT hear their songs on iPod commercials and now, unlike every other major rock act, Zep is NOT interested n cashing in on Guitar Hero.
Good for you, Jimmy and Co. You don’t need the money. And, every time you turn down one of these offers it just makes you music more valuable. Touring is one thing; I think they will eventually put something together. The rest, is just stuff that lowers the overall integrity for cash.
