Roger Daltrey has told The Republican that The Who could be getting its own dedicated Rock Band game.
“The [Beatles] game, yeah, yeah, they’re going to be doing a Who one next year. There is one planned,” he told the newspaper. “[The idea] is fabulous. Anything that gets non-musical people interested in music is wonderful. In my opinion, music is our last true great freedom.
“They can burn our books, they can burn our paintings, but they can’t stop us singing and making music.”
Sounds fine, providing he’s not getting DLC mixed up with an actual game.

Yep, The Who did play the Rock Band E3 gig in LA tonight, with frontman Roger Daltrey pointing out between tracks that rhythm-action games may be the saving grace of the commercial music industry.
Daltrey told the crowd that “new music games are good” because the record industry’s “fucked,” saying that games like Rock Band are a good way “to get people to listen to music these days.”
The ageing rocker was quoted yesterday as saying he found Rock Band boring, so it appears he’s changed his tune somewhat.
The band played a long set – including Tommy tracks – at the Orpheum Theatre, South Broadway.
