Roger Daltrey praises Rock Band
Rock Band has been criticised by some for stopping people from playing real electric guitars, but Roger Daltrey of The Who has revealed he loves the game.
The legendary vocalist said the concept behind Rock Band is "fabulous", particularly as it can help to trigger a passion for music.
"Anything that gets non-musical people interested in music is wonderful," he told the Republican.
Daltrey added that a Rock Band game based on the songs of The Who is already being planned and could be released next year.
A game featuring the songs of The Beatles was issued in September, while the Queen catalogue may also be released in a similar format fairly soon.
Electric guitar player Brian May recently told the BBC: "Yes, we're into it - I think it may happen."
Former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman recently criticised the game, saying it encourages people "not to learn" how to play an instrument properly.Posted on 28 Oct 2009 22:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
