Dhani Harrison Convinced Beatles To Agree To Rock Band Game

GEORGE HARRISON's son DHANI it taking the credit for the new THE BEATLES: ROCK BAND video game - revealing he convinced the surviving bandmembers to agree to the project.
Sir Paul MCCartney and Ringo Starr are notoriously reluctant to allow their music to be used for commercial endeavours, 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 Sir George Martin.
The game will hit stores around the world in September (09), and will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii.
It will come with a limited number of instruments that are modelled 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."
