Guitar Hero bands go on tour

I have discovered why REO Speedwagon, Styx, and .38 Special would go on tour together. (Well, really, I have discovered that someone else has discovered why.)

When I was a kid, I didn't know anybody who devotedly listened to any two of the three (though some radio stations did play all three), and so it struck me as odd to learn they're coming to the Meadowbrook in Guilford, New Hampshire tomorrow night.

Turns out it's because they have found all kinds of new fans through Guitar Hero, which features songs from each of the bands, and want to play live to them - as well as let the fans play along, on a Guitar Hero mini-stage during the concert.

Just another way video games are changing the music industry!
