Apple and EMI Plan Joint Announcement Monday

BBC News:

EMI is to hold a media event on Monday with Apple boss Steve Jobs as special guest, prompting speculation that Beatles songs will finally go online.

In an invite to media sent out on Sunday, EMI said it was announcing an “exciting new digital offering”.

There will also be a “special live performance” at the London event by an unnamed artist or band.

If it’s The Beatles, and Paul McCartney is the unnamed artist who’s going to perform, will Ringo play with him?

And/or perhaps EMI is going to allow Apple to sell their music sans DRM? It’s got to be one or the other — what else would get Steve Jobs to fly to London?
