McCartney, Starr, Harrison and Lennon Unveil Rock Bandby Paul Cashmere
Out first animated view of what the upcoming Beatles Rock Band video game will look like was unveiled overnight in Las Vegas by Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Olivia and Dhani Harrison and Yoko Ono-Lennon.
The former Beatles plus the wives for George and John were at E3 in Vegas for the official unveiling of the game that will be released on the very Beatlesque dates of 09-09-09. The date is a reference to the song Revolution 9 that featured the lyric “number 9, number 9, number 9”.
The gamer release of The Beatles music will also premiere the new remastered versions of the original songs. The completely remastered Beatles discography will also be released on the same day.
The game controllers for Rock Band will feature John Lennon’s Rickenbacker 325, George’s Gretsch Duo Jet as well as Paul McCartney’s Hofner bass and Ringo’s Ludwig drum-kit.
They also announced that a side-version of the game will also be released featuring the entire Abbey Road album.
(Cool and fun just like The Beatles)
