LONDON, England - It's a done deal! According to an official report by United Press International, Sir Paul McCartney has signed a $400 million agreement with iTunes for the distribution of The Beatles' back catalog. Finally, we'll all have a chance to download The Fab Four from iTunes, a subject of many headlines that have only resulted in empty promises until now. It's an EMI deal that should produce high quality Beatles MP3's without the pesky DRM. Let's hope that's the case. A firm date from Apple announcing The Beatles iTunes debut is pending.
How does this deal effect Paul's gold digging ex-wife Heather Mills? The Daily Mail is claiming that this deal
could cause major groin pains for McCartney in his ongoing divorce from Heather Mills, increasing her settlement request to include even more of the singer's newfound fortune that she never earned. Man, that must be a real buzz kill. This might be a good time for Sir Paul to drop Maxwell's silver hammer on the cranium of Miss Mills. He has my vote.
