I wouldn’t put it past you if you were to argue that the Beatles would be an instant hit on iTunes. Though it’s not likely to happen soon, or ever for that matter. It was speculated that the Beatles may join the iTunes crew during last year’s iPod unveiling, but that didn’t happen. And it still hasn’t, despite the band’s advances in the digital age. Quoting 9 to 5 Mac:
“(Apple CEO) Steve Jobs has his own idea and he’s a brilliant guy,” Ono, the 77-year-old widow of John Lennon, told Reuters. “There’s just an element that we’re not very happy about, as people. We are holding out.
Yoko teased us last year with a claim – later deleted – that music from the band would reach iTunes. She’s not teasing anymore, saying, “Don’t hold your breath … for anything.”
