Rock Band DLC: Bowie track pack can be played left hand

I wish this were me announcing that the entire David Bowie album, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars was coming to Rock Band. But it’s not, so this will have to do.

It’s a five track David Bowie pack, featuring five popular songs from the Thin White Duke’s various records. “Blue Jean,” “Fame,” “Modern Love,” “Young Americans,” and “Ziggy Stardust” will all be part of the pack, which will run you $8.49/680 MS Points/850 Wii Points. You can get individual tracks for $1.99/160 MS Points/200 Wii Points, and even upgrade “Modern Love” and “Ziggy Stardust” to Pro Guitar/Bass for an additional 99 cents.

With the addition of “Ziggy Stardust,” we’re only eight tracks away from the full Ziggy Stardust record, one of the best of all time (according to me). “Suffragette City” appeared on the original Rock Band, and “Moonage Daydream” was released as one of the first pieces of downloadable content.

I’ve been waiting for four years here… maybe they’ll release the rest in 2012, which will be “five years.” Get it!?! Oh, bad Ziggy Stardust humor…
