Living guitar legend Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave has confirmed in a recent Rolling Stone interview that he's going to be one of the bosses in Activision and RedOctane's upcoming Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. He said he loved the game and is hoping to be a competitive character.

"Whenever I play Guitar Hero, my opponent always kicks my ass on my own riffs," says Morello. "Now that I'm actually in the game, I hope the digital me will win once in a while!"

Morello has been distinguished because of his trademark synthetic riffs and politically-charged numbers while with Rage Against the Machine.

Brett Michaels of Poison and Slash of Guns n' Roses have earlier been named as bosses in Guitar Hero III. RedOctane promises more legends to challenge when the game launches later this year for the Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii.

why is brett michaels in this? i saw his garbage performance in rock of love with his solo band (my girlfriend watches this sh**fest) and it was one of the easiest sh**tiest songs i have ever heard. and wow, tom morello!!!! so to beat him what do i have to do, play a really simple riff and hit the pickup toggle a bunch of times and stomp on a modulation pedal? these are some retarded bosses. i would go with zakk or kerry king.

I agree with everybody, especially the first post. Zack Wylde needs to be a boss. They have his f***ing guitar in the game why not him. Tom Morello gives me a god damn headache and Brett Michaels is a giant joke. If they don't use Dime at least put the razorback in as an unlockable guitar

Why don't they just make f***ing Wesley Willis a boss, too? The only thing Tom Morello is the boss of is microwave TV dinners. I f***ing HATE Tom Morello. Oh, so your guitar has a short in the wiring, huh? Good for you.
