The dueling responses to video games featuring the likeness of The Beatles and Kurt Cobain speak wonders about the respective fan bases of those musicians. The Cobain faithful, on one hand, are horrified that a certain cash-crazed widow would license the grunge hero's likeness to a commercial video game that celebrates the very hair-rock culture he detested. The following (outstanding) YouTube video, posted yesterday, illustrates how demeaning Cobain's Guitar Hero appearance is far better than any words could:
The Beatles: Rock Band is nothing less than a cultural watershed, one
that may prove only slightly less influential than the band's famous
appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show" in 1964." Yessir, this is the biggest, most exciting piece of Beatles news since... the last remixed/remastered whatsit came out. I can't keep track of them anymore.
