Noel Gallagher On Guitar Hero
Ever outspoken Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher has slain another sacred cow after claiming he has never played the game Guitar Hero.
Launched in 2005, Guitar Hero has become a massive success selling millions of copies worldwide. The game uses a plastic guitar shape with a selection of buttons to recreate the feel of a classic six string.
Noel Gallagher however, remains unimpressed. “I always tell kids playing a guitar is not a video game, there is no level to get to,” he told Total Guitar magazine.
“You’ll never master it and you’ll never complete the game. I’ve never played Guitar Hero myself. I suppose I’m a bit old-fashioned.”
However the Manchester musician did begrudgingly admit that the game is preferable to “somebody getting their head chopped off with a samurai sword while two goblins try to kill a donkey with a laser beam”.
He added: “If it puts little plastic guitars into kids’ hands and fires their imaginations, I guess it’s a good thing”.
