In what would have seemed like an obvious choice at the dawn of the Guitar Hero/Rock Band revolution, a Jimi Hendrix Rock Band edition will make its way to consoles by the end of 2010.  In a recent interview in the LA times, Jimi’s step-sister, Janie Hendrix expressed that the game was part of a long term contract she signed last year.

Are people excited for this tribute?  Will it have a limited edition that comes packed with a flaming lefty stratocaster and a headband jammed with LSD?

UPDATE: According to Harmonix’s PR agency, they haven’t made an official announcement regarding a stand alone Jimi Hendrix Rock Band, but they have stated “that [they] are in discussions to bring more of his music to [their] platform. Stay tuned.”
