Kiss singer Gene Simmons, speaking to GameOn, has confirmed he’s to appear as the “voice” of Guitar Hero 6.

Activision has said on several occasions that a new Guitar Hero will launch later this year, one of only two music games from the publisher in 2010. The other one’s DJ Hero 2.

While there hasn’t actually been a Guitar Hero 6 press release, Red Octane founder Kai Huang has openly talked about the product, saying the company is currently researching how future Guitar Hero iterations will work with motion controllers, and the like.
