The Flaming Lips’ New Guitar Hero Axe

NBC got the Flaming Lips (among others) to do their interpretation of the NBC chimes. There’s a video that shows Wayne’s double-neck guitar hack – he’s replaced one of the necks with a Guitar Hero controller. He even says, “there are a lot of kids who think this is how you play guitar now.”

I don’t think the GH controller is functional, as he’s put a Korg Kaossilator pad where one would normally play the strings, and that seems to be how he’s playing the Guitar Hero neck. It’s kind of a version 2.0 of his Alesis airFX acoustic guitar.

Yes, this is the most awesome Guitar Hero hack ever.

And yes, I want a Kaossilator.
