    Digital Mystery Tour: The Beatles' First Video Game

    I guess it was bound to happen at some point.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/31/ar...ref=television

    If you’ve always bragged that you could play the drum part in “Helter Skelter” better than Ringo Starr, you may soon get your chance to prove it in a video game based on the music of the Beatles. The game developer Harmonix and the publisher MTV Games, creators of the music game Rock Band, announced in a conference call on Thursday that they had entered into a partnership with the Beatles’ Apple Corps Ltd. to produce an interactive game that would offer players “an experiential journey” through the Fab Four’s music and history, according to Alex Rigopulos, chief executive of Harmonix. Paul Mccartney, and Mr. Starr, as well as Olivia Harrison and Yoko Ono, have all approved the as-yet-untitled game. Giles Martin, son of the Beatles’ producer, George Martin, will serve as the project’s music producer.

    Another sign that the Beatles music may never die, a new generation will again discover the great songs of the Beatles.

    I was waiting for someone to catch that statement in the article.

    John, who could be pretty crass, once said that Ringo wasn't even the best drummer in the Beatles.

    During the White Album sessions, Ringo left the group temporarily because he was upset about his drumming, and it took a visit by McCartney to get him to come back.

    And we thought GAC's kid played a lot of video games. Once that game comes out there's going to be a Texas Death match for control of the TV.

    and as i understand it, it was during that hiatus that Ringo got the idea for "Octopus's Garden."
