For the last few days, I've been watching my son play Guitar Hero Metallica. I tell you, he's pretty good at that game. He's been getting down at it, playing at expert level! Don't ask me to to play it...I suck. I'm better at a real guitar.
One of the things I like about the Guitar Hero game, it gave my son a wealth of knowledge of rock and roll. I have a huge album collection and listen to my music often. Now my son often asks me if I had what or whatever by so and so. I'll turn him on to it! At 12 years old, he's knows more and appreciates classic rock more than the average kid. I'm proud of him!
I despise the commercialization of rock and roll. Given this experience, my viewpoints have changed. Without the Guitar Hero game, I think kids these days would ignore the good stuff and keep listening some of that crap this is out there. What you do think folks?
