Comented Aric Almirola
: "I cannot say enough about what the partnership with Activision
has meant to me and the guys. They make the coolest video games out there, especially 'Guitar Hero'
. It really has been an awesome experience. I've been giving my 'Guitar Hero World Tour'
set a workout over the last few months and I can't wait to play as METALLICA
. I know all the guys on the team are huge METALLICA
fans, so you can bet that we'll be rocking out this weekend!"
