Hendrix: Rock Band rumoured

Harmonix play down speculation

Word on the street teases us this week that Harmonix could be working on a big-name Jimi Hendrix Rock Band game - although the developer play-down such chit-chat.

Step-sister Janie Hendrix had told the LA Times that a new deal with Sony Music would see the veteran rocker's work released through "every type of media", including video games.

Harmonix, however, hint that this could have been stated in error: "While we have not made any official announcements regarding Jimi Hendrix and Rock Band, but we are excited to say that we are in discussions to bring more of his music to our platform. Stay tuned."

Long-buried recordings from Hendrix are expected to be released soon. More as we get it.
