Digital Music News has been compiling a list of the artists who still don’t sell their catalogues (or at least the majority of their catalogues) on iTunes and other digital stores. The Beatles and AC/DC you know about, but here’s a few more names: Garth Brooks, Bob Seger, Tool and King Crimson. Meanwhile, Kid Rock and Def Leppard have done some limited licensing, but still remain largely absent from stores. 9 to 5 Mac has followed up the story, rounding up quotes from the artists and their managers about why they’re still not selling digitally – for the most part, it’s because they want to sell full albums rather than a la carte downloads, so fans can’t cherry-pick tracks.
