Slashdot notes a new service where users can pay to have certain songs re-written the way they like.  While the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Springsteen and U2 haven’t signed up to offer their tunes as such yet, it’s still an intriguing idea and maybe a wave of the future- a new way for musicians to get income if they don’t mind their songs being tinkered with.  Surely to some musicians, their work is sacrosanct and they wouldn’t dream of such a thing but for plenty of other songwriters, bands and musicians, this might be an income stream.
