We can thank Dhani Harrison for “Rock Band” Beatles edition.

First, I have to get something off my chest. I like Dhani–he seems like a decent, kind, talented fellow–but I’m really puzzled and shocked that he participated in a  trendy photo shoot involving a lot–and I mean a lot—-of fur, especially since his father became such a  champion of the environment and  protecting nature and not harming animals. You can try Googling the photo shoot on your own; I’m not showing it here.

That said,I have to admit that we fans of the video game Rock Band, some of which have been salivating to get our mitts on Beatles songs to play, have Dhani to thank for this wish coming true:

From

Starpulse Entertainment News Blog:

George Harrison’s son Dhani is taking the credit for the new The Beatles: Rock Band video game – revealing he convinced the surviving band members to agree to the project.

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are notoriously reluctant to allow their music to be used for commercial endeavors, but were won over by a mock-up Harrison Jr. put together using his dad’s solo music.

McCartney, Starr and John Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono gave the concept the thumbs up – and Dhani has landed a job helping to develop the game alongside Giles Martin, the son of the band’s longtime producer George Martin.

The game will hit stores around the world in September, and will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii.

It will come with a limited number of instruments that are modeled after guitars, basses and drums used by Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starr.

And Harrison, 30, promises fans a treat. He tells Blender magazine, “The game blows my mind. It’s infinitely better than Rock Band 2.”
