Johnny Rotten Bashes Guitar Hero III at Launch Event
Posted by XanTium | November 28 13:51 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From oxm.co.uk:


After introducing himself by saying "[censored], it's rubbish, I hate the whole thing", the Sex Pistols singer then goes into the reason why he's there - to promote Guitar Hero III.
"I'll give it to you basic and honest," he says. "The offer came in and I took it home and I played it with a bunch of kids. What I like is it weren't teaching you how to be a rock star, it was teaching you how not to be a rock star..."

why is this in the front page...

PS: I think MS didn't pay him much, because he was drunk (or hi) or maybe his xbox had rrod while playing guitar hero 3 (very graphics intensive).

MS wasted their money hiring him to speak they could have got a drunk bum off the street to do better then that.

thats how he always acts whenever he hosts things. no script, no preparation, and always sounds drunk. if you dont believe me watch "Sorry", its a skateboard movie by Flip with him giving introductions to skaters

No one pointed out he was bought to promote Rock Band? No one? Ok

Plus, he was at one point punk, there might be some of that left in him so good on him to rebel a bit

PLUS plus, he did record one of the better albums ever and one recognised by 99% of music knowing people so kudos to him, cos i haven't

The degree to which Johnny Rotten has sold out frankly sickens me. Anarchist indeed.

Um what he did was actually the opposite of selling out.

That was funny. He seemed to get more and more drunk as the clips went on.

Oh right, because I always base my decisions and rating of a GREAT game on some drunk's comments about how he thinks its "rubbish".

This guy couldn't have screwed this up more. Congrats, retard...

Yet another celebrity makes an @$$ out of himself by taking advantage of their celebrity status to express their personal agenda(s)....

Someone please send this over to Matt Stone and Trey Parker....
