Beatles “Rock Band” is Stimulating Guitar Interest

Ok, Beatlemania strikes again! But that’s ok with me because I love those guys…..alot! According to my old friend Jim Pasch of Hoboken Vintage Guitars and The Parts Drawer he tells me that he is getting a flood of phone calls  from kids asking about specific model guitars that the Beatles used. This is giving the guitar market and according to Jim the “vintage guitar” market a great boost. I for one am down with that!

Here is an short excerpt from Pasch’s blog: “I got a call yesterday from a kid must have been 12 years old or so saying he wanted a bass like Paul McCartney and then innocently asked if he can plug the guitar into his video game. I thought wow this is amazing here is a kid who probably never knew the Beatles and has become fascinated in a short period of time and now wants to buy or use what Paul was using in the video game. Amazing.”

The Beatles Rock Band game has opened the eyes of yet another generation to their music. It is also stirring the interest in music and guitars in a non-violent video game format. Yes, good news for music, the guitar market and the children of the world. Oh….not to mention the Beatles brand equity.”Yeah, yeah, yeah!”
