I haven’t been listening to much rock these days; any desire to listen to rock is entirely satiated by the occasional game of Guitar Hero. It’s the first video game I’ve been really fascinated by in about fifteen years. A game so bananas it spawned its own academic conference. I usually play on “Medium” level to avoid loud boos from my fictional graphical audience; I recently tried to play “Smoke on the Water” on Expert level with catastrophic results. I was thinking someone should come up with a video game called “Ambient Electronic Music Hero,” but I’m trying to figure out a way in which that game would not be intensely boring. “Free Jazz Hero” might be good, I was thinking.
