Jimi HendrixAccording to a report at Billboard.com, Jimi Hendrix, widely regarded as the greatest electric guitarist of all time, will soon have his own Rock Band video game. In an interview with the L.A. Times, Janie Hendrix, who controls Jimi's estate, let it slip that a Hendrix version of the game would be out later this year. Billboard reports that neither MTV Games nor game developer Harmonix returned calls for comment.

If Rock Band Jimi Hendrix proves to be true, it will be another significant event in the world of Jimi Hendrix this year. Valleys of Neptune, a collection of previously unreleased studio recordings, is due out in March. The Experience Hendrix 2010 Tribute Tour, featuring an all-star lineup of guitarists like Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd, kicks off on March 4, in Santa Barbara, California. And this September marks the 40th anniversary of Hendrix's death.
