I guess it was bound to happen at some point.
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.
