ROCK ‘N’ ROLL ICON, MOTRHEAD’S
LEMMY, COMING TO GUITAR HERO METALLICA
Once honored by Metallica with seven
Motörhead covers performed as “The Lemmys,” GRAMMY Award-winning legend and lead
vocalist and bassist of Motörhead, Lemmy, will take his rightful place on stage
alongside Lars, James, Kirk and Robert in Activision Publishing Inc.’s Guitar
Hero® Metallica® this spring.
Budding rockstars will have the
opportunity to experience Lemmy’s in-game likeness as he wails away on vocals
and shreds his bass guitar – or play as the icon himself. The rock ‘n’ roll
legend, born Ian Kilmister, will have a familiar tune with him as Motörhead’s
2008 re-record of “Ace of Spades” rocks its way into the set list.
Lemmy says, "It’s great to be in
Guitar Hero with all these famous people and I’m really pleased to be in it with
Metallica…but James is still taller than me."
“Ride the Lightning” with musical
icons Metallica and 21 other rockin’ acts in an all new Guitar Hero® experience
– Guitar Hero Metallica. Enter the world of Lars Ulrich, James Hetfield, Kirk
Hammett and Robert Trujillo and experience the intensity and skill of one of the
greatest bands of all time. Shred on the guitar controller, rip on the drum kit
controller and wail on the mic to a set list featuring over 45 explosive hits
from Metallica’s illustrious career and a wide variety of other legendary
artists personally selected by the band, such as Alice In Chains, Bob Seger, Foo
Fighters, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Queen. Fans will be able to rock as Metallica while
performing in venues reminiscent of the band’s epic album covers, themes from
their music and real world locales.
