Greg & Lemmy Unite For Guitar Hero!

Greg recently teamed up with Lemmy from Motorhead and Joel Jewett, President of Neversoft to act as a judge on the Guitar Hero "Release Your Rockstar" competition. The competition which runs until June 13th allows people (over 16) to submit videos of themselves either playing Guitar Hero or carrying out an air guitar performance and in an 'American Idol' type fashion, each contestant would be judged by the three judges.

The grand prize (which has now closed) allowed the winner to be flown to Los Angeles to undergo a special motion capture session and have themselves immortalised as a character in the next Guitar Hero game! Two runners up (prize still open), will get the chance to hang out with Irish rockers, The Answer, during a recording session for their upcoming album. Other entrants will have the chance to win other prizes, such as Addict clothing, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock video games and an Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

Check out two videos below, both featuring Greg as a judge for the competition.
