After Country Music Television stated that Roy Orbison's music would be coming to Rock Band as DLC, Harmonix has confirmed the rumor on their official forums. This marks the second time the CMT has leaked DLC info, beginning with the recently released country music tracks.
Responding to claims that this was a planted rumor by Harmonix and CMT, Sean Baptiste, Manager of Community Development for Harmonix, responded by saying:
Nope! This announcement caught me by surprise too (I think it was coming next week), yay first 20 minutes at work!
At any rate I am very pleased (huge Orbison fan right here) to announce that this is true, it is coming, and more details including track listings are to follow probably next week.
Nothing like coming into the office to deal with a leak first thing. I don't feel too bad for them, however, as they live in Massachusetts and have access to delicious Dunkin' Donuts coffee, which does not exist in Los Angeles.
Now you should hit the jump for an Orbison tune, if you're having trouble knowing who he is (shame on you).
