Rock Biz

Use rock and roll to sell stuff? Well I never…

Damn those Beatles! Can you imagine what Apple (Computer) would be up to if they hadn’t reached that little legal agreement with Apple (Corp.) not to get involved in the “music industry”! Not only are they ruling today with their iPod and mini iPod but iTunes (in the US only still!) is actually making people buy their music from a legally sanctioned and officially RIAA blessed online store. To top it all off, according to Apple Stores Rock they are hosting live musical performances in their Apple Stores for free! A far cry from the days of the Apple 1 but hey, Steve Wozniak was responsible for the US Festival and the brilliant plan of having the Grateful Dead play in the afternoon! Ah well, not every hit can be a home run.
