Directed by Jon Brewer, this new version has been expanded from a single DVD to a double disc set, which will feature loads of unreleased archive footage, over five hours of never seen/heard extended interviews, plus 8mm silent film footage made by Henry Diltz of Hendrix on the failed 1967 tour with The Monkees, and much more. The Guitar Hero features interviews with Dave Mason, Eric Clapton, Mick Taylor, Eric Burdon, Micky Dolenz, Paul Rodgers, Ginger Baker, Bev Bevan, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Lemmy Kilmister, and many more. The entire project was narrated by Slash.

Jimi Hendrix: The Guitar Hero will be rereleased as a double DVD and Blu-Ray disc on June 10th.

If you watched yesterday’s Super Bowl XLIV, you may have caught a commercial featuring The Who‘s “My Generation” but heard in a different fashion. The co-vocals in that mix was done by none other than of the Black Eyed Peas. What you may not have known was that the song also featured guitarist Slash. While the new version is sure to upset purists, it was not bad at all.

The new mix, created by with approval from The Who themselves, has now been released as an MP3. All proceeds will be going to the Oxfam America’s Haiti Earthquake Response Fund, a charity selected by himself.
