Beatles To Release Back Catalog On Website?

Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are looking at releasing the Beatles back catalog through their own website.

The two surviving members, along with the estates of the late John Lennon and George Harrison, have been negotiating with Apple about an iTunes release.

But Harrison's son Dhani told Blender that they are not satisfied with the offer made by Apple and they may go elsewhere.

He said: "We're losing money every day. So what do you do? You have to have your own delivery system, or you have to do a good deal with Steve Jobs.

"But he says that a download is worth 99 cents, and we disagree."

Meanwhile, the Beatles edition of the Rock Band video game has been given a September 9 release date.

if they charge more than 99 cents a song, it had better be far superior audio quality than the iTunes piss poor standard. F iTunes. how about re-releasing all the vinyl at top quality?
