I'm Goin' On Tour, Mom!

Y'know, at least when I was a kid, we dropped out of high school to join an actual band:
In fact, young Mr. Peebles is dropping out of high school... in order to focus on Guitar Hero full time. Peebles hopes to join the small but growing crew of players looking to make gaming a job.

Citing his victories in Guitar Hero tournaments, which include "gift certificates, gaming equipment, and chicken sandwiches," Peebles thinks he has the chops to play competitively and earn actual money in the process.
I have to say...if there's real money to be made in this, then I just don't understand the world at all.

Coming next from Activision: Guitar Loser. This is more of a role-playing game; players tell their parents that they're quitting school to go on tour, attempt (and fail) to get a paying gig, then decide just what kind of part-time job they're willing to do in order to finance their weed.
