E3 2009: Playing Rock Band with McLovin and rocking DJ Hero with Jay-Z

Microsoft's evening press event, featuring The Beatles: Rock Band, plus playable demos of Halo: ODST and Left 4 Dead 2, continued the celebrity theme. We got a chance to play "Back in the USSR" and "Taxman," but the real excitement started when we left the stage and were replaced by the unlike combo of Dhani Harrison and Christopher "McLovin" Mintz-Plasse. Later that evening, Activision brought out the big gun in support of the Guitar Hero family of games, which is now expanding to include the turntable-based DJ Hero game (more on that later this week) -- namely Eminem and Jay-Z. Check out the gallery below to see what game industry types get up to when they're not actually playing, making, or writing about games.
