(AP) — When the Rolling Stones were in their prime, they were the most popular band in America.
Now, they’re just about the only one.
George Harrison and Ringo Starr are in the top three for most number of albums sold in the United States, and the Beatles are in their final year as rock legends.
They were once synonymous with the blues, and now they’re more widely admired for their songwriting, the power of their music and their innovative approach to popular culture.
The Rolling Stones, as they are known, won three Grammy Awards, won a Grammy, were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and became the first rock band to win a Grammy.
The Beatles are now in their fifth year as the most-watched and most-listened-to band in the world.
The group has sold more than 6.6 million albums, more than any other pop group, according to Nielsen Music.
George Martin, the group’s longtime lead singer and songwriter, died in December at age 69.
The Stones, who released three albums each during their peak years in the 1970s and 1980s, have a combined global fan base of 1.2 billion people, and have a global total of about $5 billion in sales.
Their success has given them unprecedented power.
They have influenced millions of people in the process.
Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger has said he would not have made the band if it wasn’t for the Beatles.
He said in a 1996 interview that he wanted to be the best version of himself and the Stones became his life, and his best band.
They have a rich and loyal fan base that is deeply involved in their lives.
The band has been instrumental in helping the homeless and the disadvantaged.
The late Mick Jaggis, the Stones’ bassist, was diagnosed with cancer.
He has been a key influence in the lives of many musicians.
John Lennon, who died in November at age 66, was a huge supporter of the Stones, and in his memoir, “Imagine,” he described how the Stones helped him cope with his own cancer diagnosis.
John Coltrane, who played guitar and sang lead on several of the band’s albums, said the Stones gave him the confidence and self-confidence he needed to play his instrument and sing.
And Paul McCartney, who was known for his distinctive voice, became a major influence on the Beatles’ songwriting.
McCartney has been in the band since they were 16 and played lead guitar in their first six albums.
They became the Beatles and then the Beatles again in 1969, and again in 1975, in a way that left no one in the group with any other band in its history.
The group is one of the most successful rock groups in history, and its popularity has spawned the film “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week,” which has earned more than $5.4 billion at the box office.
They also have sold millions of records, including hits such as “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “She Loves You,” “You’re Gonna Make Me Happy” and “Love Me Do.”
George Harrison, the band leader, is a former member of the group, and he and his wife, Linda, have two daughters.
He was also a member of The Beatles, and their first four albums sold more copies than any previous Beatles album.
His wife died of cancer in 2007.
She was 89.
George and Ringos were married on July 5, 1962.
They divorced in 1969.
He became the third member of his family to die in the past few years.
He is survived by his wife of more than 60 years, Dorothy, his four children and grandchildren.
