Rock Band, Harmonix and I have a long relationship since I started Cutegeek 7 years ago. The Beatles Rock band Release at E3 had me up on stage (and we all know I do not like getting on stage) singing and ripping it up on the drums.
TODAY I got word that one of my favorite all time songs has been added to the Rock Band line up, Pixies "Where is my mind?!" They are also adding one of my all time favorite singer/ song writer Billy Joel! See the press release below and some funny videos of Radiris and I at our first E3 together!
