Jack White and Jimmy Page Hate On Guitar Hero

Led Zeppelin legend Jimmy Page and White Stripe Jack White have officially condemned Guitar Hero by talking some serious smack on the video game at a recent press conference.
While recently promoting It Might Get Loud, a documentary film that chronicles their musical careers, the guitarists said they don't believe video games are an ideal way for people to be exposed to music or learn to play instruments.

"It's depressing to have a label come and tell you that [Guitar Hero] is how kids are learning about music and experiencing music," White said. He added that although he doesn't try to command "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."

Jimmy Page added that he can't imagine that people are really learning anything significant about playing instruments by playing video games.

"You think of the drum part that John Bonahm did on Led Zeppelin's first track on the first album, 'Good Times Bad Times,'" he said. "How many drummers in the world can play that part, let alone on Christmas morning?"

Well said, guys.
