You can be with the 'Band' in Auburn

Love the college experience but don't have the musical chops to start the essential college band? No worries, with the video game "Rock Band," which is sort of a full-band version of the monster game hit "Guitar Hero."

Game publishers Electronic Arts brings the "Rock Band" outfitted tour rig to Auburn University on Wednesday. The public is invited to give the game a try throughout the day at Auburn's Student Union Building.

Performances will also be videotaped so that MTV producers can choose two bands to fly to New York for training from a real rock band. Both bands will get to play on MTV’s "TRL," and one ultimately will open for a yet-to-be-named mega band at a concert.
