Anthrax guitarist rocked by 'Guitar Hero II'

'Guitar Hero' isn't like playing a real guitar...and vice versa. Just ask Anthrax's Scott Ian.

If you've ever wasted away the weekend playing Guitar Hero II, there's nothing to feel guilty about. Feel proud. Feel like a rock star. Feel these things because you're probably better at Guitar Hero II than actual guitarist Scott Ian of Anthrax.

Anthrax good. Guitar Hero bad. Kotaku.com

And he even gets to play his own song.

As this fascinating video on Kotaku.com shows (WARNING: Swear words are all over the place), Ian had a bit of trouble performing his own song on Guitar Hero II. During his first attempt, he fails 31 percent of the way through the song.

And if that doesn't float your boat, maybe this video interview of the guy who's actually playing the guitar in Guitar Hero will.
