EMI global catalogue chief Ernesto Schmitt confirms to the Financial Times what we suspected at the Rolling Stones-inflected iPod event: The Beatles won’t be making their grand iTunes Music Store debut tomorrow.
“Conversations between Apple and EMI are ongoing and we look forward to the day when we can make the music available digitally. But it’s not tomorrow.”
Looks like The Beatles Rock Band is still gonna the only (legit) way to snag The Beatles catalogue completely digitally, at least until someone kicks EMI in the arse hard enough to make it happen. [FT]
