Phish does Guitar Hero
Phish.com announced earlier today that the band has added a live series of song downloads to the already platinum game title:
A Phish "Live Track Pack" for Guitar Hero World Tour is available for download now and features live recordings of "Sample in a Jar," (12/1/94 Salem Armory, Salem, OR), "Down with Disease," (12/1/95 Hershey Park Arena, Hershey, PA), and "Chalk Dust Torture," (11/16/94 Hill Auditorium, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI as released on "A Live One"). The pack is compatible with 360, PS3 and Wii .
The Track Pack can be downloaded from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace and from the PlayStation Store (where the songs are also available as singles).
In addition, Rock Band has released tracks from year's Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, and included is "Wilson" from Phish's Friday night set.
I don't own the game, or any of the consoles, but I might now. Though this does raise the question, what will all the classic rockers out there adding their catalogs to guitar hero's list: why doesn't Frank Zappa release one? It'd be essentially the same game!
I kid, Trey's licks are sick.
