Ear on TV: Week of October 29

If you spent anytime at a mall yesterday, and I have to admit I did (long story,) you had to have noticed all the excited overgrown boys clutching the new Guitar Hero III game. The long awaited third release for the Activision/Red Octane video game was released yesterday, and it promises to be the best yet, featuring the likeness of former Guns & Roses (and current Velvet Revolver) guitarist Slash. For his part, Slash is making the talk show circuit rounds this week, plugging both the game and his new autobiography (Slash written with help from Anthony Bozza). When Slash it's Letterman Tuesday and Conan Thursday night, he'll drop some dirt on Axl (he's a Billy Joel fan!) and demonstrate some of the action from the game.

The game was pre-ordered for me for my birthday, so seeing that river of new GH3 packaging flow out of the mall has me salivating. There's 74 songs this time around, including ones from artists like Sonic Youth, Dead Kennedys, The Strokes, Bloc Party, Tenacious D, Queens of the Stone Age, Muse ("Knights of Cydonia" see video) and many more. Here's a playlist of the songs from this GH3.

I'm kinda surprised Feist isn't doing anything else while she is in town. I don't any conflicts before the SNL gig.
