Beatles Edition of Guitar Hero on its way?

Martin Bandier, a top executive at the music publishing company that owns the Lennon-McCartney song writing copyrights, has said he'd be interested in a dedicated edition of Guitar Hero for the Beatles.

"It's something we have talked about and something I'd like to pursue," said Bandier to theLos Angeles Times.

Traditionally, the rights to cover Beatles tracks have been notoriously hard to obtain, but copyright owner Sony/ATV Music Publishing has recently loosened its stance, allowing a number of companies to use the songs in advertisements.

Activision has yet to comment on the matter, but it'd be daft not to pursue a potentially massive opportunity like this.
