Chris Carter on 'The Beatles: Rock Band' Revolution

By Frank Meyer - Posted Sep 04, 2009

Chris Carter on The Beatles: Rock Band Revolution and The Fab Four


Beatles fans know Chris Carter as the host of Breakfast With The Beatles, the longest running Beatles radio show, which can now be heard nationwide via Little Steven's Underground Garage on Sirius Satellite Radio. Many rock fans know him as the bassist in Dramarama, whose 1985 smash hit "Anything, Anything (I'll Give You)" is still an alternative radio staple. So who better to give us a brief history of the Fab Four and chat about the impending impact of The Beatles: Rock Band (MTV Games / Electronic Arts)?

Breakfast With The Beatles Host Chris CarterIn fact, Chris not only gives us an overview of The Beatles and how they impacted music and pop culture, but takes us on a song-by-song journey of 11 of the band’s most important tunes, as heard in the upcoming game. Chris fills us in on everything you’d ever wanna know about the world’s greatest group, from the fab four’s earliest gigs as a pub band at The Cavern, to their monumental performances on The Ed Sullivan Show and teen-scream arena shows at Shea Stadium and the Budokan, to their groundbreaking days at Abbey Road Studios and their legendary final rooftop concert, Chris fills us in on everything you’d ever wanna know about the world’s greatest group.

Why are The Beatles so important? What tricks did they do in the studio to make such magical, timeless music? What were the band members going through personally during the sessions? What was going on in the world when this music was unleashed? Why did they stop performing live? Why does the music have such staying power?  All this and more will be covered in great detail from the man many consider to be one of the foremost expert on The Beatles (and a damn fine musician in his own right too).

So enjoy this look at The Beatles: Rock Band and prepare to dig the Fab Four in ways you might not have ever expected. And to get your weekly Beatles fix, make sure to listen to Chris Carter on Breakfast With The Beatles on KLOS in Los Angeles, and on Little Steven's Underground Garage on Sirius Satellite Radio.

The Beatles: Rock Band will be released September 9, 2009 on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Wii.

    Just finished all the videos. Lots of fun info there, though he doesn't say anything about the greatness that is Ticket to Ride. This is all getting me so excited, I hope I have that loan money in time to get a box set and the game.

    @Frank
    Thank you for posting this article. I hope people give this game a chance so they can learn about the band that pretty much influenced everyone after them. I'm not just speaking on the musical side but the business side as well (ie Sgt Pepper album cover... even the Rolling Stones tried to copy them).

    When I hear people in this site say "The Beatles suck", I imagine them living with their parents in a home with Tomas Kinkade paintings, growing thinking that's art. You have my sympathy and suggest maybe taking a history of rock and roll course in college. Most CCs and universities offer them now.
