Review: ‘Beatles: Rock Band’ fun for jamming in groups

There I was, trying to wedge a microphone under my arm while simultaneously pressing colored buttons on a plastic guitar with my left hand, strumming it with my right hand and crooning, “I want to hold your hand …” So while it’s theoretically possible, “The Beatles: Rock Band” — whose 9/9/09 release coincides with the debut of remastered versions of the Beatles catalog — should not be played alone. Besides the impracticality of multiple-instrument play without the right equipment, there is something rather lonely about attempting to play in a world-famous band by yourself.
