Beatles game to feature “psychedelic” period, say McCartney

In an interview with Variety, Paul MCartney’s confirmed that the upcoming Beatles Rock Band game will “feature different periods of the band — you get early days, Liverpool, then psychedelic, and on from there. It’s very cool. And I like the idea that the game introduces kids to music, you know?”

Still no word on when we can expect the 45-track game, but if what McCartney says is true it’ll include everything from the bowl cut days to the tripped-out hookah-smoking phase.

Awesome.

    One of them is John Lennon, no question.

    The other I cant tell if it’s Ringo Starr or George Harrison, my guess is Harrison

    My parents bought a PS3 for Blur-ray and Guitar Hero last year, but they’d probably like this but to buy more guitars?

    I hope they force kids to learn the evolution of music, drawing in other band parallels and eras to show progression…. we don’t share evolution of music well enough with the youth

    Hmm, i have some pretty good memories of yellow submarine but i can see this game being absolute junk :/

    i think it would take some inspired thought to make it work which i cant see coming.
    *takes off pessimistic cape*
    i hope im wrong but time will tell.

    lol doubt it would be junk if it has songs of the beatles, even more with the psyche era songs.

    The question is, if we play this game backwards, will Paul die?

    (and if you dont get that comment look up playing the beatles white alblum backwards)
