Lars Talks About Why Metallica Went With Guitar Hero
The drummer from the popular band Metallica, Lars Ulrich has spoken once again. This time he talks about why the band decided to go with Activision’s Guitar Hero as opposed to EA’s Rock Band.
“We had to make a decision, and it was one or the other, and we felt that Guitar Hero were more suited for what we were looking for. They were ready to step up on a number of fronts and it’s been great. You probably have heard a few birds chirping about the potential of a Metallica game at some point in the future, and who knows what’s gonna lurk next year, but it’s pretty exciting.”
What he really means when he says, “We felt that Guitar Hero were more suited for what we were looking for,” is code for making more money. Not because they feel Guitar Hero is a better platform for people to enjoy their music — but really for them to make as much cheese as possible. First I want to say, I’ve got no problem with people making a decision based off of financial reasons, but please ‘don’t beat around the bush.’ The whole world knows Lars is a money grabbing ‘little person,’ so maybe next time for once Lars — don’t spin the situation.
He also mention from the quote above, Activision’s plans on still possibly developing a Guitar Hero Metallica game, something similar to the Aerosmith version that came out earlier in the year. We assume the company will take advantage of each instrument included in Guitar Hero: World Tour. Of course you know what people say about the word assume — you start to look like Lars.
