Yet another legacy of the Partridge Family:

We'll have to play each other. LOL!

Hate to be a spoilsport, but the article is dated April 1st.

Better wait for confirmation from another source on another day.

We might be getting pranked here. Also, it quotes Danny, but Danny hasn't said anything on his podcast.

Would be fun if it's true though. Laughing

Thanks for pointing that out Kathy!

Sorry everyone for jumping the gun! Embarassed Yeah, I can't find anything else about it. That, the fact that no one else posted anything about it, and Danny's "quote" that didn't make a lot of sense should have been clues to me. I completely forgot about it being April Fools too so that would have been another clue. But the idea doesn't seem that farfetched to me.

Maybe someday Rock Band will put out a song or two.
they Have a cover of the the Monkee's "last train to Clarksville" available.

40 years ago, a PF Rock band would have outsold the Beatles Rock Band (which btw, is alot of fun.)

Oh well, it was a fun thought. Cool

Also, I just noticed that the game was supposed to be released in honor of PF's 40th Anniversary, which is this year- why would they release it in 2011? Surprised

Um -- I'm hearing this may not be a joke. Unless the mainstream press fell for the "joke" too?

Scott,

What other places have you heard this?

Of course, what I should do is check the official Rock Band site.
and the Nintendo WII site.

Following up .... Looked at Rock band.com ( the official game site)
found nothing.
On a google search all the links I followed just copied the tanooki post.
Looks like one of those things where the internet is just spreading things without checking.

OK, now this info has been added to the PF wikipedia page!!! Confused

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Partridge_Family

I have an email into Rock Band customer support about this. I will post back as soon as I get an answer.

I have to believe this is a great April Fool's joke. Pretty funny one, too. Considering how hard it's been to get the DVDs released, etc., I don't think there's a humongous market out there for a PF Rock Band! If this is real, I would simultaneously be disappointed and the first in line! Laughing

TVGord,

Why would you be disappointed? Confused

Wikipedia can be edited by anyone, so it's not always a reliable source.
It is probably picking up the story we did.
It will be interesting to see what customer service says.

But why would you be disapponted if it's true Gord?

I would be surprised and drive my husband and Friends crazy, but disapponted? I doubt it. Smile

Customer service has thus far ignored my request. I've now posted a new thread asking about it on the Rock Band forum.

I tried to leave a comment too on the article but couldn't. And it looks like DB's now got it on his website as well!!!

But of course, he could just be propogating the joke! Rolling Eyes

Why would Danny put it on his site, when the article has "quotes" attributed to him if the story was fake? I dunno.

Hi Everyone,

I give up. I can't get any official confirmation or denial on this. It's looking like it was just a joke at this point. Crying or Very sad

Smile
