Adam Levine: Aside of the fact that it’s cool to be in a video game it’s also exciting to be relevant enough for or to be thought of at someone that could be on this game. It was pretty cool, I had this groovy suit, it made me look like kind of a, like a little bit, like a dorky superhero and I love this silver balls on me it’s really amazing actually. It was one of the more unique things that are done in my life. I know I’ll never had that feeling again.
Ben here is great because they really diversify what you're playing in the music songs that you can choose. I was kind of a like rebellious little kid and then I started branching out and I only like you know 10 bands and then I started really branching out and getting into a lot of soul music and RNB and things like that that I've never really listened to very much like Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye.
So I really—it was always a kind of a sponge for all of these different kinds of music. So like that’s kind of the best way to be, it’s like this beautiful music in every possible genre and category. As much as the music business is kind of falling apart, music is more present than it’s ever been. Things like Ben here and guitar here, just things that I'm seeing popping up more and more now that were around when I was a kid it’s really good and I love it, I love being part of it. And I love how music is incorporated now in video games, it’s great and it’s the only way to get music out there since you know, record businesses a disaster. So it’s one of those things that it’s actually a good vehicle for and nice support and this is a very new and very cool way for people to socialized and have fun with music which is the greatest thing, very proud to be part of it.
