Yoko oh no! No Beatles catalog on iTunes for now

This article totally gave me an excuse to write that headline… been saving it for years. Reuters is reporting that 77-year old Yoko Ono was quoted as saying, “don’t hold your breath,” when asked about the possibility of the Beatles catalog coming to the iTunes digital music store. Ono went on to say: “Steve Jobs has his own idea and he’s a brilliant guy, there’s just an element that we’re not very happy about, as people. We are holding out.” Ono is the widow of deceased Beatles front man John Lenon and owns twenty-five percent of the bands music library rights. Former Beatles members Paul McCartney and Ringo Star, as well as George Harrison’s widow Olivia, comprise the other three-quarters of Apple Corps, the bands holding company. Looks like, for the time being, you’ll have to get your Beatles fix the old fashioned way. Any Fab Four fans out there, any favorite songs?
