The Beatles And Mick Jagger Considered For New British Currency

The Beatles and Sir Mick Jagger are among 150 famous Brits who are under consideration to become the new face of the U.K.'s £10 note.

Bosses at The Bank Of England have released a list of great Britons who have been suggested for the honour by members of the public ahead of the printing of a batch of new bills next year (13).

Late British royal Diana, Princess of Wales, who died in a car crash in France in 1997, is nominated, along with the late Queen Mother.

Former England soccer captain David Beckham has made the list alongside fellow sports stars ­including cricket’s Michael Vaughan and rugby’s Jonny Wilkinson.

Political figures including former Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill and suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst have also been suggested to appear on the new note when it replaces the current bill featuring legendary scientist Charles Darwin.

Overall favourite for the nod is World War II Enigma codebreaker Alan Turing, the computer pioneer who devised techniques for cracking German ciphers.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras
