McCartney says record label still negotiating Beatles on iTunes
By Dan Moren
Our contractual obligations mean that we are duty bound to inform you of any developments in the world of iTunes and the Beatles. Trust me: we don’t like it any more than you do, but if we don’t report it, then we will be rent limb from limb by a madding horde of zombies, like the beginning of A Hard Day’s Night.
It’s a bit of a sticky issue. We want it to happen. The record company was taken over by new people quite recently, so there is a gridlock of sorts. I’d like to make it happen. Though I am not part of the negotiations, thank goodness [laughs].
There you have it. That didn’t hurt a bit, now did it? Slap this band-aid on, go grab a cookie, and off with you. You’ve got more important things to do.
