Bob Seger ends iTunes holdout
Tuesday, September 13, 2011
DETROIT (AP) — Bob Seger is ending his time as an iTunes holdout.
The Detroit Free Press reports (http://bit.ly/q9AyTq ) that the Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member’s move into digital music sales will start Tuesday, when downloads of the concert albums “‘Live’ Bullet” and “Nine Tonight” are set to appear on iTunes and Amazon.com.
The rocker says his remaining catalog “will come out in dribs and drabs.”
Seger tells the newspaper for a story published Monday he’ll also use Apple Inc.’s iTunes to unveil songs from his sizable backlog of unreleased material.
The Michigan resident had been among the few notable acts that staunchly held out from putting his music on iTunes. Segar’s manager Ed “Punch” Andrews says the decision would keep the artist “current.”
