The Piano Man Cometh!


If you are like me, and have known all the words to “We Didn’t Start the Fire” since the time you were twelve, seek help. Or get very, very excited because Billy Joel is coming to Rock Band. Beginning December 14th some of The Piano Man’s greatest hits are heading to the Rock Band DLC store. Tracks revealed so far 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.” Short of complete albums for Glass Houses, The Stranger, and Storm Front this tracklist should bring a smile to any fan’s face. I’ve had one plastered on my mug since I heard.

Best of all, the tracks will include Keys and Pro Keys part for your shiny, new Rock Band 3 keyboard. This new peripheral is what brought Joel to Rock Band, saying “The addition of the keyboard made me interested in bringing my music to Rock Band…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.”

So if you pick up the Rock Band 3 instruments make sure your keyboard sounds like a carnival and your microphone smells like a beer by the second week of December because you have a date with The Piano Man.
