In chart news, the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan have re-entered the U.S. pop charts with their new releases at No.3 and No.10, respectively.
Bridges to Babylon, the Stones' latest, marks the 39th time the band has cracked the charts with an album. Bridges to Babylon sold nearly 160,000 copies in the week ending Oct. 5.
Dylan's critically acclaimed Time Out of Mind is his first album to make the Top 10 since 1979's Slow Train Coming.
Time Out Of Mind isn't only selling well in the States; it also charted in the Top 10 in the U.K., Germany and Sweden. Bridges to Babylon came in at No. 1 on Billboard's "Eurocharts."
Caveat: Both classic rockers were outdone by LeAnn Rimes' latest release, You Light Up My Life, which re-claimed the No.1 slot. Rimes is 15 years old -- less than one-third the age of the Stones and Dylan.
