    I have absolutely no idea who we are talking about, and I'm not sad.

    My guess is that in 20 years he'll be a footnote buried in the rock n roll record books and The Beatles will still be widely known.

    Unless you're under, say, 35. In which case it's, "Paul who? Oh, that old guy who did a track with Kanye ages ago?"

    Population of the World in 1964: 3.5 billion

    Population of the World today: 7.5 billion

    I assume he didn't adjust for inflation.

    Imagine if John, Paul, George and Ringo had the interweb with social media when they were recording.... how many more records would they sell?

    This. Imagine if Revolver or The White Album was on Spotify. 3/4 of their songs would be hits.

    Oddly enough, Paul and Ringo have yet to announce a decision to have their bodies permanently adorned with photos of Drake

    I'm proud of him. Jimmy's come a long way from his wheelchair days. He's gone through so much and look where he is now!

    Legit, though... who cares? I don't like Drake, but whatever - it's funny. Yes, if The Beatles had social media and streaming music back in the day, they may have had more hits (then again, the entire industry would've been different, so maybe they would've had none or been a flash in the pan). But at the same time, if The Beatles had social media and streaming back in the day, John would've been an endless fountain of ridiculous braggadocious comments and stunts (hell, he did pretty well even without social media helping him). If anything, I'd guess Drake's little stunt gets a smirk from the ghost of Lennon.

    Also...
    Not to crush your spirit, but The Beatles are already being largely forgotten/dismissed by younger audiences, with Nirvana kinda taking their place as "the band you have to like because they basically invented music or something". At some point, it goes from "cool music your parents listened to" to "old-timey music your grandparents/great-grandparents listened to".

    a little quick research shows that this is a load of crap. what it took to be #1 in the Beatles era vs now is so different it's funny. guess he didn't notice that Sgt. Peppers has sold 11 million copies by itself not sure if all his albums add up to that many.

    sad state really. i noticed that the last Judas Priest album had hit the highest position ever for them (#5). problem is that they sold 5x as many of the 2nd highest charter and only reached #17 back in 1982.
