(BW&BK) According to NME, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has hit out at the popular Guitar Hero video game.

Speaking at a press conference in Los Angeles on Friday (June 19) for It Might Get Loud, the forthcoming documentary film that chronicles the musical careers of Page, The Edge (U2), and Jack White (White Stripes), the guitarist can't imagine that people are really learning anything significant about playing instruments by playing video games.

"You think of the drum part that John Bonahm did on Led Zeppelin's first track on the first album, 'Good Times Bad Times'," Page said. "How many drummers in the world can play that part, let alone on Christmas morning?" - more breaking metal news from BW&BK
