Report: The Beatles coming to Apple’s iTunes Store soon

“Sir Paul McCartney is to release the Beatles back catalogue online – helping pay for his multi-million-pound divorce from Heather Mills,” Robert Mendick and Jonathan Prynn report for The Evening Standard.

“The singles and albums will be made available on iTunes in the coming months following the final divorce hearing, due to take place at the High Court in 10 days,” Mendick and Prynn report.

“Containing albums such as Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the White Album and Help!, it will be by far the most prized music catalogue released via the internet, worth up to £200 million, according to some estimates. It is expected to dominate the download charts for many months,” Mendick and Prynn report.

“The catalogue’s online release has been hampered by legal wrangles that have now been settled. The divorce is thought to be the final obstacle,” Mendick and Prynn report.

  1. Since their relationship splintered, plane Heather wood rather see Paul in a pine box than to receive more royalties. Now pegged as a bitch for barking up the wrong tree for more pounds, and stumped as to how this happened, she will hopefully lathe low and allow Paul to enjoy the spotlight. This will make her look better in public poles than taking Sir Paul to the wood mill, er, shed.

  2. **YAWN**

    If I had a dollar for every-time this made the headlines, I’d be rich.

    Not that I don’t care, but it’ll happen when it happens. I’ll be glad, but this is not going to make my life, or anyone else’s for that matter, better.

  3. I agree… Who cares anymore. Beetles on the iPod are so passé…

    We already have them on our iTunes and iPods because we ripped them from our CDs long, long ago…

    p.s. I find it funny the comment about paying for Paul’s divorce, heh I thought that too…
