If you have enjoyed the music in video games, then you probably have Tommy Tallarico to thank. He has composed a large amount of video game music. He is also the driving force behind Video Games Live. I interviewed him before E3 to talk about Video Games Live and his upcoming PBS special.

For more information on Video Games Live go to the Video Games Live website.
