Beatles 'dot.com together' for Web site launch

LONDON, England -- The surviving Beatles are set to launch their first official Internet site, www.thebeatles.com, on Monday. It showcases a compilation album of 27 No. 1 hits in the United States and Britain.

Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, and John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono, are all part of the venture. A spokesman for the Beatles company Apple Corps, calls it a "Dot.Com Together." The media got a sneak peek on Thursday.
