Will we ever get Rock Band: The Donnas, or Guitar Hero(ine): Heart?

Will we ever?

Probably not.

I just saw Classic Rock Magazine’s list of 100 greatest guitar heroes (one woman on the list) Bonnie Raitt. And the book, called Guitar Heroes, with no women in it. Shocker.

So what do you think? Will we ever get women who are rockers into these bastions of prestige? Do we want to? Will we get a popular video game that focuses exclusively on women as artists?

 As it is now, we have rock games that do nothing but focus on male artists, with a few token women tossed into the mix, complete with busty cleavage and skimpy clothing.

Post your comments and let everyone know what you think!
