[rumori] the beatles

Date: Wed Aug 08 2001 - 16:12:15 PDT

I'm wondering if anyone here has any insights on the following:

I've heard vague reports that using Beatles samples is absolutely not allowed (as in, even were you to go through proper channels, there's still not a chance in hell), but I don't know anything else... or why that supposed fact is "common knowledge."

Who says No? Did Lennon? Has McCartney? Is it Ringo or Harrison? What does
Jackson have to say about it, and doesn't it ultimately end up to be his decision? (He owns the catalog, no?) Or is it up to someone else who I'm not factoring into the equation?

About to do an episode of SAR where it's everybody sampling the Beatles and I want to at least spread the right RUMOR.
