  • Source: ANI

Washington, Nov 7 (ANI): John Lennon’’s widow Yoko Ono has welcomed news that the Beatles music is to be featured on an MTV video game with the hope of inspiring a whole new generation of Fab Four fans.

After months of discussion, the legendary group’’s songs have been licensed to appear in a special edition of Rock Band.

Speaking of the release, Ono said that the surviving bandmembers didn”t have any trouble in agreeing to the project.

“All of us are actually pretty hip, so we said yes. I”m personally very excited. (The game) lets you participate in a way where you”re really (immersed in) the music, Contactmusic quoted her, as telling Entertainment Weekly,

“With so many young kids into The Beatles, it’’s a start to a beautiful new page in (the band’’s) history. Maybe they”ll start to make music and not just listen to it, and really understand what it’’s about,” she added.

Giles Martin, the son of Beatles producer Sir George Martin, is reportedly serving as the project’’s music producer. (ANI)
