Billy Joel Comes To Rock Band 3

As reported in USA Today, Billy Joel will bring his music exclusively to the Rock Band platform, among the first to be released as Rock Band 3 DLC.

“The addition of the keyboard made me interested in bringing mymusicto 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.”

The DLC will be available across all platforms – PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii. With the addition of the new keyboard peripheral, these songs are meant to provide a heavily enjoyable experience for all players. On December 14th, some of Joel’s greatest hits, 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.
