Activision was also responsible for the hit music franchises Guitar Hero and DJ Hero, which revolutionised the interaction between music and gaming.

Young has been an integral part of each brand’s music direction and integration for nearly 10 years, and has spent a great deal of time managing relationships with top industry artists ranging from Aerosmith, Van Halen, and Metallica, to pop-country superstar Taylor Swift, to Jay-Z and Eminem, to name just a few. In addition, Young and his team have been responsible for licensing over 3,000 songs for more than 130 titles during his tenure with the company. Together with composer Wilbert Roget he will focus on the craft of composing for video games at BMiM.
