iTunes Surpasses 3 Billion Downloads – Led Zepplin Signs On
Apple Inc. stated that iTunes has hit the 3 billion sales milestone. The announcement comes on the heels of news that classic rockers Led Zeppelin will debut an iTunes exclusive Greatest Hits album dubbed Mothership on November 12th.
Mothership will include Stairway to Heaven, Whole Lotta Love and Dazed and Confused and several other choice cuts from the Zep catalog which has sold more than 200 million albums worldwide. Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones are claimed to have chosen the tracks themselves — can you imagine that debate?
