Activision announced today that Brett Michaels will be making an appearance in Guitar Hero III.  Fresh off his own crappy reality TV show, the Poison lead singer will be mo-capped into the game as well as providing a new/original song for the game.

At E3 Activision mentioned that they would have three main guitar bosses in the game with two of them being real life guitar players.  Slash has already been revealed as one of the bosses but I'm not sure if Brett Michaels is that second boss (he's a singer not a guitar player) or if they still have something up their sleeves.

SUNNYVALE, CA - August 16, 2007
- Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) today announced that legendary Poison front man and "Rock of Love" star Bret Michaels will appear as a lead vocalist character in Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, providing Guitar Heroes the chance to shred with the music icon.

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock will feature the song "Talk Dirty to Me," as made famous by Poison, as well as a master track from the Bret Michaels Band, "Go That Far."

When players shred to either track, an animated replica of Bret Michaels appears as the lead vocalist.  Bret Michaels participated in a motion capture session to record his signature moves for the game.  With full body, facial and clothing scans, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock developer Neversoft was able to create an authentic in-game character.

"When Activision asked me to do this, I was honored...are you kidding me?  This game totally rocks!" said Michaels, star of VH1's top rated show, Rock of Love with Bret Michaels.  "I gave them my signature moves, basically did my thing and they captured it. It was really cool."

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, published by RedOctane® and developed by Neversoft, is rated T for Teen by the ESRB and will be available this October.
