Gamervision PAX 08: Hands-On Rock Band 2

GV reports:

''I was pretty fortunate to get my hands on some big titles, including, but not limited to, Rock Band 2 during the press preview. My first stop happened to be a short musical career with my partner in crime Sarah as we tackled both Guitar Hero: World Tour and Rock Band 2, back to back. Now to be fair and honest, my favorite rhythm games have been put on the back burner as of recently, so it was a bit of a shock to my fingers to pick up a guitar controller, especially in front of people with cameras. Here's how our very short tour ended.

Sarah and I approached the booth completely uncertain of who to talk to when the band previous to us (must have been some hired fillers) encouraged us on stage. We found ourselves not just a bassist, but a front man who I would had sworn to be too shy to even open his mouth. We boarded the Rock Band 2 stage, an actual platform with steps, and browsed quickly through the song setup. I quickly became distracted by the new Fender Stratocaster which looked as good as it felt that I missed our new singer's quick pick. I had a hankering for some of Billy Idol's "White Wedding" and would you know it, that's exactly what our shy front man picked. Yeah, he totally wasn't afraid.''
