Another Guitar Hero III Boss Revealed?

Although no official announcement has come down as far as I know, it appears that Poison and Bret Michaels Band front man Bret Michaels will be joining Slash as one of the boss battle rockers in Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, as indicated by these six new screenshots that have just surfaced from Red Octane. Judging from the first screen, the Bret Michaels Band song “Go That Far” will set the stage for the battle (add another song to the game’s confirmed track list).

[Update – August 16] Not quite… Official word just in from Activision this morning to clarify my hopeful rush to judgment last night :). Bret Michaels will actually be a lead vocalist character in GHIII, not a boss. When the tracks “Talk Dirty to Me,” as made famous by Poison, and “Go That Far,” the master track from Bret Michaels Band, are played, a virtual Michaels will cameo on stage as the lead vocalist.

“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.”
