You certainly should be able to - rock band 2 shipped with a 4-port unpowered usb hub.

Problem lies in if the rpi can handle the current draw of a hub + attachments. Some lower power peripherals should be fine but I hear the pi has problems with more powerful modules like wifi or HDD. For those you will likely need a POWERED usb hub - but for little stuff like keyboard and mouse, it will work fine.

Picture? Is it just a single male plug branching into several female plugs?
