Are the “Beatles” going to have a dedicated version of Guitar Hero on the horizon?
The LA Times is reporting:
The latest sign of a video-game “Revolution”? You may soon be able to plug in and play guitar in “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”
Martin N. “Marty” Bandier, the top executive at the music publishing company that owns the John Lennon- Paul McCartney copyrights, said he liked the idea of a dedicated Beatles edition of Guitar Hero, Activision Inc.‘s hugely popular video-game franchise.
“It’s something we have talked about and something I’d like to pursue,” said Bandier, who last year took over as chairman and chief executive at Sony/ATV Music Publishing.
Whether or not the rumors are true the idea sounds incredible. Video of what could be The Beatles Guitar Hero has hit YouTube and it’s sucked me in.
