Thanks, Alvaro.

In fact EUCLID uses the music domain throughout and there are several 
MusicBrainz/Beatles examples in Chapter 2, as can be seen here (that's 
me karate-chopping the air):
https://vimeo.com/61618438
and in the slides here:
http://www.slideshare.net/EUCLIDproject/querying-linked-data

We're working on re-mapping MusicBrainz to RDF, using R2RML, with more 
coverage of the Advanced Relationships than has been attempted so far 
(which is the basis of EUCLID-sponsored tutorials at the forth-coming 
London SemWeb meetup then at ESWC and SemTechBiz in San Francisco). In 
case this is useful to you for further examples, please do let us know.

Barry
