You may be right. I may be crazy. But it just may be a lunatic you’re looking for.

HEll. YES.

Harmonix and MTV Games has announced that the Piano Man himself is coming to Rock Band 3 next week. That’s it. We’re asking for the game from Santa next time we’re at the mall. We may even sit on his lap for it.

The 12-pack of Billy Joel songs will be made available on December 14 for PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360. Europe gets it on PS3 the following day.

As always, songs available for Rock Band 3 feature five-button guitar and bass parts, drums, Pro Drums, and keys, Pro Keys and harmonies, where applicable. Some songs also feature Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrades available for an additional $0.99.

Here’s what you’ll get, big shots:

Big Shot
Captain Jack
It’s Still Rock and Roll To Me
Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song) (X)
Only the Good Die Young (X)

We Didn’t Start the Fire
You May Be Right

These tracks will be available for purchase as individual tracks, as well as Billy Joel The Hits: Rock Band Edition. Tracks marked with an X will include Pro Guitar and Pro Bass expansions.

    This is worth it for Piano Man and The Entertainer alone.

    O.G., me and a bunch of my friends have this. We should try to get an online session of this going some time.

    I am up for it, the only touble is that right now I am drumless, and druming is mostly my thing. Arthritus keeps me from playing Guitar/Bass. I don’t yet own Keyboards, and so long as the voice doesn’t come across into your living room, I have no problem signing. lol

    I hope to get some drums this xmass.

    I own GHWT, GH Smash Hits, and GH 5. I Own RBone, RBtwo, and RB3. I have a large libary of tunes from The Zombies to Slipnot. I kid you not, I like almost everything, not big on Rap/Dance/or Techno.
