â€œWe love the Beatles and are honored and thrilled to welcome them to iTunes,â€ said Steve Jobs, Appleâ€™s CEO. â€œIt has been a long and winding road to get here. Thanks to the Beatles and EMI, we are now realizing a dream weâ€™ve had since we launched iTunes ten years ago.â€

â€œThe Beatles on iTunesâ€”Bravo!â€ said Olivia Harrison.
â€œThe Beatles and iTunes have both been true innovators in their fields,â€ said EMI Group CEO Roger Faxon. â€œItâ€™s a privilege for everybody at EMI to work with Steve Jobs and with Apple Corpsâ€™ Jeff Jones and their teams in marking a great milestone in the development of digital music.â€
