Rolling Stones To Kick Out The Monkey Man

The Bank Of England is considering giving the 10 pound note a rock n roll makeover.  Currently the mug of Charles Darwin sits on that back side of that bill, but The Rolling Stones are under consideration along with The Beatles and David Beckham for portrayal on the Queen's currency.

At left is one mock conception of what that bill may look like, though it's doubtful the BoE would decide on the haggard slightly stoned Jagger portrayed here, and the current walking corpse variety of the last decade or two is probably out too.  I would predict that if The Stones make it onto the currency it will be in Ed Sullivan style form.
