The Rolling Stones Greatest Hits
This British band appeared on the scene back in 1962, but to this day remains one of the most influential in the history of rock music! Competing for many years with the popularity of the legendary Beatles, The Rolling Stones became the personification of the so-called "British Invasion"!
Initially, the group's manager Andrew Luga Oldham wanted the guys to become a "rebellious version" of the Liverpool Four ... But already in the late 60s they became the "greatest rock and roll group"! And if you believe the influential music publications, the Rolling Stones have managed to maintain this status to the present day!
The worldwide circulation of The Rolling Stones has long exceeded 250 million ... This makes the group one of the most successful in the history of music! Today, the legendary band is included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and also takes the honorable 4th position in the list of "The 50 Greatest Artists of All Time" according to Rolling Stone magazine.
