Rock stars cool over video games
I am so behind Bill Wyman and Nick Mason on this one. I think Guitar Hero and Rock Band are a was of time.

Former Rolling Stones star Bill Wyman has expressed concern that music games like Rock Band stop young people from practising real musical instruments.
He told the BBC: "It encourages kids not to learn, that's the trouble.
"It makes less and less people dedicated to really get down and learn an instrument. I think is a pity so I'm not really keen on that kind of stuff."
Wyman was speaking at Abbey Road studios while recording a charity Beatles song for Children in Need.

His words were echoed by Pink Floyd star Nick Mason who described music games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero as "interesting new developments".
But he added: "It irritates me having watched my kids do it - if they spent as much time practising the guitar as learning how to press the buttons they'd be damn good by now."

Link goes to pretty good story
i agree......
I was playing Guitar Hero with my son the other night and some random Xbox Live member send me an insulting message.
so how do you explain "you're a fucking douche nozzle" to your kid?
There are way too many douchebags on XBOX live.

if they had they'd spend way less time on an xbox and way more time in a real box

I am the "angry dork" I saw Hooch online playing a kids version of Guitar Hero. I told him to stop being a cheap bastard and buy his kid a real guitar.
