It could also be that dream scapes are much more fun to look at.

I always assumed that it was because there were no live performances in that era and, therefore, nothing to base performances on. 

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016, 2017.

No live shows so nothing to settle upon. They did place some of the early numbers in the concerts, 'The Word ' at Shea being one, but there was next to nothing later on.

And no doubt folk would speak out and say the Beatles didn't play 'Dear Prudence ' on the roof. Heck, if folk are grumbling because Mal isn't shown setting off the alarm clock on 'A Day In The Life ' what hope do they have with songs.

I've never played the game myself but it is a game, it's not an effort in recreating Beatles history down to the last tambourine shake. Are folk really wanting the backing vocalists on screen for 'I Am The Walrus ' whilst Paul in seen shaking a tambourine whilst playing bass?

Could use his foot.

Though Dear Prudance would be hard to replicate.

No, because it is a game, and not a documentary (see the fantasy sequences if in doubt. I can say, without fear of contradiction, many of those bear no resemblance to any known Beatles performance!).  

It's quite okay for a fantasy sequence to feel like a weightless fantasy sequence; in a real-world sequence you need to be able to smell the sawdust. (Especially when you set out to contrast real-world and fantasy sequences.) It's more about verisimilitude than accuracy. The reason that a big deal has been made about Disney-era Star Wars going back to "practical effects" after the CGI-heavy prequel films is because a Millennium Falcon model put together by an SFX crew from bits of found junk looks like a real ship, or like something that could be real, while it's much harder to make something conjured out of the void in CGI similarly convincing. In the case of Rock Band Beatles, they modelled the real environments, instruments and so on, but without another living soul visible in the "studio" it's still a bit too much like watching four breakfast-cereal mascots standing in an empty room.

(For that matter, it's not as if a bit more of a nod to accuracy would have had no value as an end in itself either: George Martin, Yoko and Eric Clapton, in particular, are far from unknown to the general public. Then there's the specific issue that airbrushing out Preston reverses a decades-long policy of acknowledging and highlighting his contributions.)

3 of us played the game yesterday (drums, Hofner, & microphone) on the Wii.   Unfortunately If I want to purchase John & Georges guitar, they go for crazy prices on Ebay/amazon etc...

 

Oh well, it was fun!

So we all missed the 10 year anniversary of the release of this game yesterday (unless it's still the 9th in Alaska)

So happy 10 years, Rock Band!
