Activision has enlisted the rock legends for Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, you'll be reliving this legendary band on their path to fame.

According to Best Buy the rocking won't be limited to just strumming the guitar, hinting players will get to fill all the roles of legends Joey Kramer, Joe Perry, Brad Whitford and Steven Tyler.

Celebrating even further, owners of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock were able to download "Dream On" from Aerosmith for free on both Xbox LIVE and the PlayStation Network from Saturday till today (16th - 18th).



Steven Tyler says, “Any band that can go from ‘Don’t Want to Miss A Thing’ (Aerosmith’s #1 smash hit) to the ass-kicking ‘Sweet Emotion’ to the cheekiness of ‘Love in an Elevator,’ to the classic ballad ‘Dream On’ shows why Activision chose us to headline this game based on the diversity of the Aerosmith catalog. Not only is songwriting a bitch, but then it goes and has puppies.”

Perry adds, “On a larger scale, it’s cool for us to be pioneers helping to rebuild the music industry through a format like video games. It’s great for rock since the record companies are struggling to make sense of how things are changing. Fans want to get and experience music in new formats-and there are going to be some of them who will play the game, then pick up the guitar for real and start bands. It’s what’s happening now, and it’s only going to build more momentum in the future. It’s a massive change for the music business.”

Guitar Hero: Aerosmith is set to be released on the Xbox 360, PS3, PS2 and Wii sometime this June.

This sounds awsome, if only Metallica could used as a band.
