Billy Joel going Pro-Mode in Rock Band 3

Harmonix have today confirmed that Billy Joel will be bringing some of his most popular hits to the Rock Band platform, with a focus on the Pro Keys mode.

Tracks include “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” and will start to become available in mid-December.

From the Press Release:

“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.”

This is one of the artists that Editor-In-Chief Joe Ryan has been going on about since the Keyboard peripheral was announced. I can’t repost his reaction to this news, for  decency reasons, but presume it was very excited.
