Billy Joel songs coming to Rock Band 3

Billy Joel will bring his music exclusively to the Rock Band platform, among the first to be released as Rock Band 3 DLC

Posted on
Harmonix and MTV Games today confirmed that Billy Joel will bring his music exclusively to the Rock Band platform, among the first to be released as Rock Band 3 downloadable content.

"The addition of the keyboard made me interested in bringing my music to Rock Band," said Billy Joel. "The game introduces music to an enthusiastic audience in a powerful way, and now also helps players get a grasp on the fundamentals of the keyboard."

“We are very excited to count Billy Joel’s celebrated songs among the first downloadable content available for Rock Band 3,” said Paul DeGooyer, senior vice president of electronic games, music and programming for MTV Networks. “The moment our fans heard we were adding keyboard game play, they have been clamoring for music from The Piano Man. We are delighted to be working with Billy to allow our fans to play his killer arrangements in Rock Band – especially the fantastic keyboard parts.”

Billy Joel has won six Grammy Awards since his first hit in 1973. He has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, is a member of the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and beginning Dec. 14, some of Billy Joel’s most-loved songs including “Big Shot,” “Captain Jack,” “It’s Still Rock N Roll to Me,” “Movin’ Out,” “Only The Good Die Young,” “Piano Man,” “Pressure,” “Say Goodbye to Hollywood,” “The Entertainer,” and “The Stranger” will be available as Rock Band 3 downloadable content and will include Keys and Pro Keys parts.

Developed by Harmonix, published by MTV Games and distributed by Electronic Arts, Rock Band 3 will be compatible with all Rock Band and The Beatles peripherals and microphones. Pro Mode requires Rock Band Pro-compatible instrument controllers. The game is in stores for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 26th.
