Mccartney Hopes Beatles Rock Band Game Will Keep His Music Alive

BEATLES legend SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY hopes a new Rock Band game based on the Fab Four will help to introduce his music to a new generation of kids.
The Hey Jude hitmakers' record label Apple Corps. signed a deal with Rock Band manufacturers MTV and Harmonix last year (08) to create a new interactive game based on the Beatles' music.
Rock Band allows users to play along to music, virtually, using replicas of instruments.
And MCCartney reveals the project will span every musical twist and turn the Beatles took during their Sixties heyday.
He says, "It 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?"

That Paul never ceases to amaze me. Always "doing,"and coming up with new ideas, songs, books,he paints,tries movies, poems, cartoons, now a game.I wish I had just a fraction of his talent and ambition. God truly blessed him, . . . and we are lucky to have him in our world :-)

It is hard to believe whenever I look at a picture of Paul how one person can be so totally talented in so many ways. There is one word that I would use to describe him and that is GENIOUS.I try to watch him on Howard Stern if I am lucky, and he is so adorable, smart, cute, cunning, and I wonder if he can possibly understand how the world is in such awe of him.I listen to his music any second that I can. I saw him ONCE in person and it was pure magic. He just gets better and better all the time.I love him!!!! He is just precious and TALENTED is putting it mildly.Sheilarose
