Eddie Knox is one of the playable characters in the Guitar Hero series. He appears for the first time in Guitar Hero II, but returned in Guitar Hero: World Tour. There has been no official statement describing why Eddie Knox was not included in Guitar Hero III. He is a greaser, which means he follows trends established in the 1950s (which represent the birth of rock, in the form of rockabilly). He appears on the cover of the Xbox 360 version of Guitar Hero II, along with Casey Lynch.

When he's not cruisin' in his '55 Chevy, Knox brings his hard-working rock to any stage he sets foot on. A real road dog, Knox claims that as long as he's got his hollow body and his pomade, he ain't too far from home. -- Guitar Hero II, Guitar Hero World Tour, and Guitar Hero: Metallica (where "Chevy" is replaced with "hot rod") in-game bio

Following up a childhood dream of becoming a magician, Eddie has found success moonlighting as a modern Houdini. His disappearing act is beyond belief... often leaving no trace save a number on the pillow. -- Guitar Hero 5 in-game bio

Eddie Knox has two outfits, one available at the start of the game, and one available for purchase in The Store.


With this outfit, Eddie is wearing a torn shirt exposing his chest and heavily tattooed arms. He is also wearing normal jeans with a belt.


Eddie Knox is a cat who ain't afraid to look his best. As long as his hair is in place, he's as comfortable in old jeans as he is in these swanky duds. - Shop description

In this outfit, Eddie wears a jacket with a shirt underneath, and is wearing pants that look like the jacket. His sideburns also mysteriously disappear.
