(1/1)

Spiritinthesky:
John Lennon was born on 9th Oct 1940, singer, songwriter, guitarist. The Beatles sold over 20m singles worldwide, (1962-1970), and scored more UK & US No.1 albums than any other group. Their 1967 'Sgt. Pepper's' is the UK's biggest selling album ever. In 1990 Lennon's song 'Imagine' was played simultaneously in 130 countries to commemorate what would've been Lennon's 50th birthday. He was shot dead in New York by Mark Chapman on 8th December 1980.

apparently the UK's biggest selling album is Queens Greatest Hits while Abba's greatest hits is the best selling CD in the UK

Hows about an album that isn't a greatest hits package?

Bohemian Rhapsody and Do They Know It's Christmas are higher selling singles than Mull Of Kintyre but then again Bohemian Rhapsody was released twice and Do They Know It's Christmas was a charity single.
