What rock star would you like to make an appearance?

This isn't excluded to those with songs in the game. Just say who you'd like to see in digital form. 
 
I'd say Badmotorfinger-era Chris Cornell, from Soundgarden:
   

Chris Cornell. He's like if Jesus were a pirate that had a 5-octave vocal range.
Not only is he insanely talented, but he also has a great frontman look with that long hair. Seeing him shout his way through something like Slaves and Bulldozers would be kickass beyond belief. The only big problem with this entry, other than the fact that I don't think Soundgarden makes an appearance in GH5, is that Chris Cornell has changed dramatically throughout the years. He's much more clean cut nowadays, and he might not want a videogame using his likeness that is no longer his likeness. Still, it'd be awesome. 
 
As a bonus, I'll throw in another, this one also in his prime in the early 90's: 
 

Les Claypool. He plays a mean fucking bass.
Les Claypool, of Primus, is another example of a crazy talented musician. Musicians everywhere, particularly bassists (such as myself) revere him for his complete quirkiness. While some people listen to his playing and think it's downright stupid, one thing is for sure . . . this guy can fucking play. If he were included in the game, he'd need around 15 different types of each article of clothing that are randomly generated to form a wardrobe. He'd also need his 6-string Rainbow fretless bass, not shown here. 
 
So, who do you all think should lend their likeness to GH5?

Since there's 2 dead people in the cast, I would love to see Freddie Mercury in the game. Queen is in the game. Granted, with  David Bowie, but if they both make it in the game then it would be even better.

Axl Rose

Chris Cornell, good choice. I would also like to see Ian Anderson, flute intact.

Freddie Mercury fucking owns all. 
 
That said an early Cornell and Les Claypool are stellar suggestions as well (would be nice if we could get some "Rusty Cage" and "Anti-pop" first though), what gives?
 
 
Oh and Animal from the muppets needs to be in GH6, fuck it, just make "GH: The Dr Teeth Band" and get 'em all in there.

Any Rush member, if not all of them.

I agree with Sarcastic Gamer on this issue. They should go the route of NBA Jam, and have characters completely unrelated to rock music, like Wolverine, Alma from F.E.A.R., Martha Stewart, and Barack Obama.

True. In that video with Kurt Cobain that kicked up a lot of fuss, I was far more interested in playing as the skeleton than anything else.

Pete Townshend would be cool, I think.
