It’s so frustrating that one of the world’s most-pirated bands hasn’t yet been offered a deal it can accept to go online, with Paul McCartney today telling Billboard that even though the surviving members of the band would like to go for it, negotiations aren’t going well.
“That is constantly being talked of, we’d like to do it,” McCartney told Billboard.
“We are very for it, we’ve been pushing it,” he said. “But there are a couple of sticking points, I understand. So the last word I got back was that it had stalled, the whole process…They [EMI] want something we’re not prepared to give them.”
“It’s between EMI and The Beatles. What else is new.”
Such a shame, I’m sure it’s in the public interest if we could work it out.
