During EA's E3 press conference, Harmonix CEO Alex Rigopulos announced the formation of the Rock Band music advisory board. The board is to be comprised of music industry experts and will oversee the selection of music that will appear in Rock Band as the game's constantly expanding music selection grows every week. Rigopulos further announced that the advisory board would be chaired by Steven Van Zandt, former guitarist for the E Street Band (and Silvio Dante from The Sopranos). Van Zandt stated to the crowd that is the advisory board's mission to select the best songs from every era of rock n' roll as well as selections from up and coming artists.
Of course, there are still a few unanswered questions, the first being how much all this mammoth content will cost. We'd also like to know what other music luminaries have been invited to join the music advisory board. Your guess is as good as ours.
