It would be awesome if we could find a way for our opinions to be able to arm wrestle.
I think part of that is the industry and part of that is the fans.but in terms of general artists like the next Prince, no one springs to mind there either, maybe we all so jaded nothing really wows us anymore? Sure there have been plenty of talented enough performers, but ‘iconic ‘? I think he’s right now I think on it.
Damn.....I didn't think stinky hippies had that kinda dough.One band i haven't seen mentioned yet is Phish, love them or hate them they're absolutely huge. And not only do they fit the objective definition, they absolutely fit the other wrong definitions too. They've played Madison Square Garden for New Years Eve 13 times, grossing over $50 million dollars and selling nearly a million tickets. For JUST THOSE shows.
Total ticket sales approx 11 million totalling over $500 million.
Oh yeah, their first album was released in 89.
Listen, man. Gene is a personal friend of mine. He saw your post, and was really embarrassed that you pointed out his band has only sold a paltry 75 million albums. He was pretty broken up, cried all the way in the bank.
Just saying, more iconic artists by sales after 1988 than what KISS brought in in record sales. I mean, he’s no Rihanna.Listen, man. Gene is a personal friend of mine.
