White Stripes frontman saddened by music games

Guitar Hero not a hit with Jack White

The rise of music video games as a new way of digesting music has left White Stripes frontman Jack White feeling a little bit depressed.

Speaking to the NME (thanks VG247) he said it was 'sad' that games have be used to get youngsters into new music.

"It's depressing to have a label come and tell you that [Guitar Hero] is how kids are learning about music and experiencing music," the rocker railed.

Ultimately, however, White doesn't mind "which format people should get their music in... if you have to be in a video game to get in front of them, that's a little sad."

More music fun as we get it.
