U2 keen to appear in own Rock Band game

Impressed by The Beatles' efforts. 

The members of popular beat combo U2 have said they would quite like to appear in a music game after all, actually.

They considered such a move about a year ago but later decided against it. "We definitely would like to be in there, but we felt some of the compromises weren't what we wanted," bassist Adam Clayton told USA Today.

"That could change. I love the idea that that’s where people are getting music, and we’d love to be in that world. We'll figure something out."

By the sounds of things, Bono, The Edge etc. have been inspired by the work of John, Paul, Ringo and so on.

"What The Beatles have done, where the animation is much more representative of them, is what we’re interested in, rather than the one-size-fits-all animation," Clayton said. "We didn’t want to be caricatured." Goodness no, who would take your giant pink sunglasses and names like The Edge seriously then?

What do you think, readers? Oh.
