This needs a good ol' Rick Flair - WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!
This is obviously worrying news, as is any news that rocks the proverbial boat. I'll be waiting for any update Drake has for us. My first thought - maybe EA? HMX already has a relationship with them, and I'm pretty pleased (at least from my outside view) with how EA handles other franchises, such as everything Bioware does.
So yes, anxious but very hopeful. This could turn out to be a great thing.

Not necessarily in that order.

I'm not sure what HMX's value is if the Rock Band IP isn't included in the sale...
Basically, they're a company that helped lightning strike by Americanizing a Japanese game. Then they went off and expanded that game into Rock Band.
The rest of the IPs don't have nearly the profile of GH and RB, so I imagine from a business perspective that HMX looks kind of like a one-trick pony that just happens to do its one trick better than any other pony in the world. Separating HMX from the RB IP would spell death for both.
Bowties are cool.
I can really see GH wanting a pro mode for Guitar. Harmonies shouldn't be that hard. The others now.....
In a perfect world though....
The best possible outcome is that Apple (The company, not the lovable scallywag moderator) buy Harmonix.
Rock Band - iTunes connection and bundle deals on purchases.

Viewer discretion is advised.
The contents of the above post are likely sarcastic.
I don't care if POP CAP buys Harmonix, so long as we continue to get DLC. I'd hate to think that some of us just invested in new instruments (especially PRO instruments) for a platform that will be decommissioned by March.

Make this happen and I will never request anything ever again.*
