Surviving Beatles and Spouses Do Not Understand the Internet

Clockwise from bottom right: The Beatles in order of talent

Ever wonder why you can’t download the Beatles? Because Paul McCartney is terrified of the Internetty thing eating his music, that’s why.

Apparently the Beatles and surviving spouses are insanely protective of the master tracks, which we could understand if not for the fact that, oh wait, we have lots and lots and lots of versions of these master tracks. The Beatles themselves just put out another CD set of them. Which 99% of the Internet downloaded. For free.

This is why you don’t do drugs, kids. It makes it difficult to understand modern technology. Also, you start bands like Wings and marry self-righteous vegetarians.
