REMEMBER WHEN WE GOT NOSTALGIC? THOSE WERE THE DAYS

It's a nostalgic moment for the pop marketplace. The Rolling Stones have a new album. The Beatles have a "new" song. Taylor Swift has a new 1989, which was first made not in 1989 but in 2014 (and is set to experience a sales tsunami in 2023).

We thought we'd salute this flurry of retrospection in accustomed HITS fashion, i.e. with a traipse through our bountiful photo archives. Here are the aforementioned rock legends and pop megastar over the years, posing with HITS weasels, biz players and/or fellow stars.

We don't imagine the surviving Beatles and Stones, let alone Swift, who narrowly survived a photo op with Todd Hensley, are feeling particularly nostalgic about the above, but we'll take whatever proximity to greatness we can get.

Pictured: John Lennon re-evaluates the notion of personal space during this intimate tableau with a young Lenny Beer; Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr step up to a photo op with Neil Portnow; George Harrison joins fellow Traveling Wilburys Jeff Lynne and Tom Petty, label boss Mo Ostin and Evelyn Ostin; Stones Charlie Watts, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ron Wood schmooze with Virgin's Ken and Nancy Berry; Taylor withstands the proximity of Hensley.
