Bob Dylan & Rock Band

En este blog, como quizás ya hayan notado, somos fans de Bob Dylan. Además, también somos seguidores del excelente videojuego Rock Band. Con tales premisas, resulta obvio que, al unirse ambas en la forma de una canción de Bob Dylan presente en Rock Band 2, no haya más que entusiasmo por parte de este genial blog.

Expresando tal entusiasmo, tenemos, en primer lugar, un fragmento de una entrevista a uno de los developers de Rock Band 2, justamente sobre cómo consiguió meter una canción de Dylan en el juego. Veamos.

GN: Bob Dylan makes sense for Harmonix to pursue, but I was a little surprised he agreed to have a song in a videogame. How did you end up nabbing Dylan and why did you choose "Tangled Up in Blue"?

Brosious: When we approached Bob Dylan, he was enthusiastic and actually took the time to go through his catalogue and gave us a number of song suggestions he thought would work well. We ended up with "Tangled" because obviously it's a great, great song and it had really cool parts. I remember the first time we put the tracks up, the entire audio dept. gathered around and listened to the drums. They sounded like the freshest, most modern, hip-hop beat you ever heard.

Y en segundo lugar, ponemos un reloj (arriba) en cuenta regresiva hasta el launch del juego, ¡en ya menos de un mes!
