Dhani Harrison, son of Beatles’ guitarist George Harrison, appeared on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien on Tuesday 8 September, to discuss The Beatles: Rock Band video game.  Harrison, a musician and video game designer, helped develop and create the newest sensation for Beatlemania. He was also responsible for getting Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr on board. Wrapping up Tuesday’s show, Conan, along with Tonight Show staff member Aaron Bleyaert, and Tonight Show band member Mark Pender, joined Harrison on Rock Band‘s version of “Birthday”.


The game was officially released on Wednesday, 9 September, along with the complete remastered Beatles catalog. The new digitally remastered albums have been dominating Amazon.com’s best-seller list. The game has been ranking first for Playstation 3, and second in sales for both Wii and XBOX360.
