Am I missing something? I can't find a dedicated section in these forums for Apple Music questions...
I am aware the service has not been released yet, but maybe someone can answer the below questions for me.
Over the past few days it was announce a number of artist of include Adele and Taylor Swift would not be releasing their entire discography on Apple Music. My wife is a fan of these artist and has a few of their albums...my question is if I already have these albums in iTunes (regardless of how I obtained them), will I still be able to just upload them and stream them?
Does it work like that for AC/DC, Led Zeppelin and other artist with iTunes Match even though those artist are not currently available for purchase on iTunes.

There's no dedicated Apple Music forum, I think this is the right one for your question. The answer to your question is yes, all your music that isn't already in the Apple Music library will be uploaded and available for you to stream/download across all your devices.

Your iTunes library will be scanned and matched just like with iTunes Match. And if it's not on iTunes it will be uploaded. The music you bought from iTunes, added to iTunes from somewhere else, and added to your library as part of your membership to Apple Music will all be in the same place: the My Music tab.

Also, Led Zeppelin recently got on Beats Music so I'm thinking they might be on Apple Music. Hopefully.

I wonder the same thing. I don't auto renew until November so I have time to see what next week and a few weeks after are like with Apple Music but I'm not clear on how the two services work together yet. The only benefit I see in having both is having access to music not offered on Apple Music but is in my personal collection. It could happen as not all of Apple library will be available. My matched songs however will be redundant.

The functionality of iTunes Match is included in the Apple music membership. So basically, you won't need to keep paying for iTunes Match if you're paying monthly for Apple music.

So, and I think I read this some place, Apple will scan your music and whatever you have in your collection that they do not have in theirs will be uploaded or at least available to you via streaming via Apple Music? Is that what you understand too? Most of my music is matched to theirs but I have roughly 500 songs that are not for whatever reason.

They didn't release any pictures or demo Apple Music on iTunes did they?
Was just wondering if there were any screenshots anywhere, or if someone's made any mockups?

I have seen the keynote several times and nothing I have seen has shown what this might look like on a PC, MAC or Android. They only showed the iOS application. (from memory)
