Beatles on iTunes? Yoko Ono says 'Don't hold your breath'

“[Apple CEO] Steve Jobs has his own idea and he’s a brilliant guy,” Ono, in L.A. to promote the upcoming PBS documentary LENNONNYC, told a reporter. “There’s just an element that we’re not very happy about, as people. We are holding out.”
“Don’t hold your breath … for anything,” she said with a laugh.
When EW spoke to Paul McCartney on the same subject in February of 2009, he told us, “It’s a bit of a sticky issue. We want it to happen. The record company was taken over by new people quite recently, so there is a gridlock of sorts. I’d like to make it happen.”
“Though,” he added with a laugh, “I am not part of the negotiations, thank goodness.”
