Paul McCartney said today that negotiations to get the Beatles’ catalog on iTunes have stalled, despite the members of the band (and their estates) being very for the move. Apparently EMI wants a bigger piece of the digital-music pie than the Beatles are willing to give up! “Hey, sounds like the music business. It’s between EMI and The Beatles. What else is new,” he added before saying that he feels like the majors “are floundering a little bit” and voicing his opinion that Chinese Democracy has “been a long time coming.” (Yes, he really did get asked about Chinese Democracy.)
