Jimi Hendrix heading to Rock Band next week

Legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix will be making the jump to Rock Band next week with his second album Axis: Bold as Love, accompanied by the newly discovered tune ‘Valleys of Neptune.’

“Hendrix’s music is something that our fans and supporters have been clamoring for on the Rock Band platform,” commented MTV Games bigwig, Paul DeGooyer.
“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,” added DeGooyer.

According to Rolling Stone, the album will be released on Tuesday though we assume this is for the Xbox 360 release, with PS3 owners presumably getting the tracks via next week’s PSN update.

Future Hendrix DLC is also a possibility, and rumors have already popped up regarding a possible Rock Band spin off title for the musician in a similar vein to The Beatles and Green Day.
