Rock Band

December 27, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

With Joel home again, his video game platforms are back in operation. And with his receipt on Thursday of one of the versions of Rock Band for the Xbox 360 — The Beatles: Rock Band — we can now pretend to be John, Paul, George, and Ringo. I had never played Guitar Hero or Rock Band or whatever other variants there are before. I wasn’t entirely clear on what it is one does when playing them.

I know now. I’ve played the drums on the easy level on several Beatles songs, the guitar on easy level for a couple of songs, and the drums on the next level up from easy once. I failed miserably at that one non-easy experience. I don’t see myself participating too much. I doubt I’ll be cranking it up to play with Gail when Joel’s out of the house. But I’m sure I’ll be playing more, especially once we move beyond the Beatles. Some of these songs I’ve listened to enough for this lifetime, and maybe for the next one as well. Let’s bring on the Stones. Or for that matter, Led Zeppelin, whom I was just reading about in Rick Moody’s review in today’s NYT of Mick Wall’s new book, When Giants Walked the Earth: A Biography of Led Zeppelin. Jimmy Page I’m not. Obviously. But I’m ready to give Whole Lotta Love a try.
