In Reply to: Re: Re: Storm where do you get your sales figures from? posted by Big Vic (Storm's numbers are clearly wrong) on October 29, 1999 at 11:39:15:
Wrong, Vic. Do your homework before you post. Elton John has only had one top ten album during the past ten years, and only one to sell more than one million copies (platinum). The Stones, in contrast, have racked up four top ten albums, of which two were certified multi-platinum (two million plus) and two were certified platinum.
: So say, Voodoo sold 5 million- then Stripped sold 6.5 million?!?!?!?! Storm's figures are way way off. Probably by more then 4 million copies! That is insane. I saw a whole list of Stones sales figures on this page once, I believe posted by Storm. The figures were so inflated it was unreal. The Stones, for who they are, don't sell albums like a lot of lesser acts. Elton John could out sell the Stones if he released an album of him reading the phone book. I'm not saying it's right but it is true. By the way, the Stones would have sold 1-2 million more copies of "Bridges" if "Saint of Me" was the 1st single. They totally fucked up with "Anybody Seen My Baby" the whole rap part in the middle- that turned off fans young and old. Think about it.
