Iconic bands rock again on the charts 60 years later

The British rock groups The Rolling Stones and The Beatles are back together in the top ten on one of the prestigious American Billboard charts after almost six decades.

The Beatles’ latest release, “Now and Then”, has just made its debut at number 9 on the latest Billboard Adult Alternative Airplay chart and now joins The Rolling Stones’ “Angry” which is currently in the sixth position wear

These legendary rock groups, which both originated in the 1960s, appeared together for the first time on the Billboard Hot 100 chart together in 1964 with their respective hits, “I Feel Fine” and “Time Is On My Side”.

RNews reported earlier that ex-Beatle John Lennon originally wrote and sang “Now and Then” in 1977 and that the rest of the group developed it. Thanks to artificial intelligence, the band’s only surviving band members, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, were now able to finally finish the song decades after the original recording.

McCartney labeled it “the last Beatles song”.

“Angry” is the first single release from The Rolling Stones’ latest album, Hackney Diamonds.

This is the band’s first full-length album in almost 18 years and the first since the death of their drummer Charlie Watts in 2019.

The name Hackney Diamonds refers to the historic working-class neighborhood in east London and the shards of glass left on the ground after a carjacking.
