Rush Plays Rock Band on Colbert
If you ever wanted proof that playing Rock Band isn’t the same as playing in a real band, here it is. Canadian rock trio Rush were challenged to perform their classic hit “Tom Sawyer” on Rock Band before they went on to play a special extended version of their hit for the Colbert Nation show.
Sure, vocals are almost the same as a concert performance; except for the strange “Overdrive” that the microphone seems to have trouble picking up on, which always comes when the singer would normally have to breath. The drum kit is nearing a midi drum set up, but the guitar and bass controllers are only superficially similar to the real instruments.
The result is… well see for yourself.
I hope this doesn’t put the band off releasing more master tracks for the game.
