Activision announced that among other games that will be crossing over to the Wii platform, Guitar Hero will also be making an appearance on the Wii. At this point they have mentioned no details concerning the port. Not even if it will be Guitar Hero II or the already planned Guitar Hero III.
In my opinion, Guitar Hero could go great on the Wii, and it especially emphasizes the possibilities with the Wiimote. At this point it can either go two ways: an attachment for the Wiimote, or using your nunchuck as air guitar. Honestly I think the latter would be much cooler and a more intuitive use of the Wiimote. It would be a lot faster, less cumbersome, and the air guitar impersonations would be pretty cool. But recently the Guitar Hero license switched hands, and delicate situation such as this might not go so well with the change in management.
Also, I while back many videos came out of Wii drum game, though I've found it to mainly go unnoticed. How interesting would it be if they bundled this with Guitar Hero. If they added a karaoke game into it, you'd have a single "Wii Garage Band" game. Quite possibly the nerdiest and coolest thing to come to the Wii. I would totally make a Wii garage band :-)

This seems to be a good place to link to this Youtube video of using the Wiimote for DJ controlling functionality. Hello, Harmonix. Are you listening? I can already imagine Frequency 2.
Not my kind of music though :)
Considering Guitar Hero already uses its own controller, I really don't see which console it wouldn't go well with. I think the "ooooh, this would be great on the wii/ds" comments are getting somewhat stale by now - especially after I've read someone claiming that "katamari would be perfect with the wiimote".
We'd still need a bass guitar method, unless you're a White Stripes fan.
I was told that Guitar Hero II would let you play the bass guitar line... doesn't it?
Nope, you've got rhythm guitar and main guitar but no bass.
GH2 does let you play bass line, only on some songs (like Free Bird) do you have lead and rhythm.
