The greatest guitarist of all time will soon be added to Rock Band.

Rolling Stone reported yesterday that Jimi Hendrix’s legendary album Axis: Bold as Love and new single “Valleys of Neptune” will be available as downloadable content beginning March 30. (We happen to be giving away a dozen Valleys of Neptune CDs, so click here for a chance to win one now!)

Rock Band will later dole out more of Hendrix’s music in connection with Experience Hendrix and Legacy Recordings’ own CD/DVD remasters of Hendrix’s three studio album and the posthumous release First Rays of the Rising Sun.

Rolling Stone also reported that Rock Band has reached an agreement with Experience Hendrix for the possible inclusion of a Hendrix avatar, replica instruments (and as we all know, Jimi’s famed white Strat would be the most obvious) and even a Rock Band dedicated game similar to Rock Band: The Beatles.
