U2 Want Rock Band Game

U2 want to release a 'Rock Band' video game like their idols The Beatles.

Bass player Adam Clayton has revealed he and his bandmates - singer Bono, guitarist The Edge and drummer Larry Mullen, Jr. - had talks with the makers of the hugely popular video game series last year but initial discussions broke down.

He said: "We definitely would like to be in there. But we felt some of the compromises weren't what we wanted. That could change. I love the idea that's where people are getting music and we'd love to be in that world. We'll figure something out."

Adam says the group are reconsidering their initial decision after witnessing the painstaking detail and authenticity of the recently released 'Beatles: Rock Band' title.

He added: "What The Beatles have done, where the animation is much more representative of them, is what we're interested in, rather than the one-size-fits-all animation. We didn't want to be caricatured."

'The Beatles: Rock Band' was made with the approval and input of remaining Fab Four members Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr and the widows of John Lennon and George Harrison, Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison respectively.

Yoko, 76, claimed the game merges music and art to create amazing "healing vibrations".

She said: "I think game is the second revolution. In the beginning the band made a splash with their music; with the video game we're going to create a planet of music and art."
