I Wanna Be An Atomic Punk

It's no news to anybody that I love me the Guitar Hero.
I may only have a PS2 (for now) but that doesn't keep me from rocking out like the rest of you cats with your fancy PS3's and XBox 360's.

I haven't picked up the latest one yet, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith but I probably will shortly.

After reading this though, I can wait a little longer.
Really??? You're not kidding with me and toying with my emotions, are you?
A Guitar Hero: Van Halen?!?! F#*K YEAH!!!
One of my favorite video games coupled together with THE BEST DAMN ROCK BAND IN HISTORY? (That's a fact Jack!)
I think my head just exploded from the sheer awesomeness of that divine bit of news.

The Wall Street Journal did an article on it, so it's seems to be a legitimate rumor for now.

What could possibly keep this from happening and making my whole life worth living?
1) Do they pick songs from all eras of the band or only the David Lee Roth tracks?
2) Did they include animated copies of all the band members or just Eddie? If they include them all, does that mean we'll get Michael Anthony on bass or Eddie's son Wolfgang? Will Sammy make an appearance?
3) What if the band boots DLR out again right when the game goes into production? Will it still be a "go" or will it be scuttled?

In all seriousness, I'm not holding my breath for this one to appear.
It would be incredible for a fan like myself to have this happen but the dynamics of the band are such that it's not a probability.

I'm more likely to see Piano Hero: Elton John before this ever happens.
(But I'll be happy to be proven wrong, okay Activision?)
