The legend of Jimi Hendrix lives on not only in his albums and videos but now also in the video game realm.
According to Experience Hendrix.com., over a dozen Classic Hendrix tunes will soon be on the new video game Bandfuse: Rock Legends.
Starting in January, 15 of Jimi's songs will be available to Bandfuse gamers as downloadable content in the Bandfuse Rock Legends music store.
Not only that but a virtual Jimi will also be integrated into the game which will include interviews with present day Rock Stars talking about Jimi's guitar playing techniques and style paired with video footage from his performances.
Bandfuse Rock Legends will also be the sponsor for the 8th edition of the Experience Hendrix Tour set to launch in March.
These special event performances will feature playable kiosks of the Bandfuse game at each stop of the 20 city tour featuring in game instruction from Black Label Society and former Ozzy guitarist Zakk Wylde.
Look for the tour to kick off in Dallas on March 11th with West Coast dates to be announced.
By the looks of Heavy Metal legend and founder of Motorhead Lemmy Kilmeister, you would never guess that beneath that grizzled hard core appearence there lies a sentimental heart that wants to give you something for the holidays.
No it's not a Christmas tree or a cup of egg nog.
According to Crave Online.com, Lemmy & the Motorhead crew wants you to win a brand new Limited Edition Collector's model of the ASG Motorhead guitar!
Now that Lemmy is back out of the hospital and will be hitting the road after the holidays with Motorhead for a new string of tour dates, they are back and better than ever with a new best selling album.
Not only that but Motorhead also has a new video for their "Heartbreaker" track off the new album that features concert perfromance from their recent tour from such concerts like the Metal Hammer Golden Gods, Wacken Open Air Festival, Rock In Rio and more.
Tis the season to Headbang Motorhead style...so maybe you'll be the one to stuff that Motorhead guitar in your stocking.

Classic Rock is getting some new respect in the world of Hip Hop.
One of the biggest Hip Hop hits of the year "Bezerk" by Eminem uses samples from the Billy Squire song "The Stroke".
So now a new mash up Hip Hop song has hit the internet that has the late Hip Hop legend Notorious B.I.G.'s song "Hypnotize" mashed up with the Led Zeppelin song "Ramble On" and it's called "Ramblize".
Apparently Jimmy Page, like Billy Squire, didn't have anything to do with the production but both approve of the strange combination of Hip Hop and Classic Rock.
Billy said he was impressed with how it was used in the Eminem track and Jimmy said that approved of the B.I.G. track.
Of course since "Bezerk" is a big Hip Hop and Top 40 hit, Billy is most likely enjoying not only the new found publicity but also the fat royalty checks he's getting.
On the other hand "Ramblize" has yet to released as a legit Hip Hop track and I'm sure Jimmy has enough money from his Led Zep career that he dosen't need the cash or pub as much.
Since "Ramblize" isn't an approved song I can't post it here, but if you want to check it out, just Google it or hit Soundcloud.
After rockin' hard and partyin' just as hard for over 40 years, who would guess that the Godfather of Heavy Metal would not only be still alive at 65 but still making new music and selling out venues worldwide?!?
Yes it's true...The Prince of Darkness turns 65 today!
I'll never forget the time I met Ozzy at a meet n' greet after a concert here in Bako back in the '90's.
He brought his solo band to a sold Convention Center and blasted through his Sabbath and solo hits topped off with an encore that included him drenching the front row with a giant Super Soaker water gun.
Looking like a crazed 5 year old on drugs he raced across the stage and promptly slipped on a water puddle on stage and busted his ass.
But like a true Metal Head he didn't blow off our radio station meet n' greet after the show and stayed to take photos and sign autographs for out listeners.
And he was nothing short of hilarious.
Here's what he said to me when it was my turn: " I'm Ozzy...damn glad to meet ya...oh me freakin' back!"
To celebrate Ozzy's big b-day he is asking fans to donate to one of his favorite charities The Royal Mardsen Cancer Charity who have raised over 100 million pounds (that's English dollars) to fund pioneering developments in cancer care over the last 10 years.
