Paul McCartney decided to cash in, reaching a $400 million deal with iTunes for the distribution of the Beatles’s catalog. Ringo Starr and the families of George Harrison and John Lennon each will be getting a cut, as will Michael Jackson, EMI and Sony recording groups.
Of course, you can bet your car that Heather Mills is gonna want a bigger divorce settlement based on her former husband’s newfound fortune. This sale comes on the heels of American Idol’s recent back catalog score of nearly 200 Beatles songs, which the show didn’t have last year, making for one really effing bad "British Invasion" show.
