ug what a bummer

couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of assholes

Are we maybe down to one (living) asshole still in the band?

The new RIAA cert for the Eagles' Greatest Hits album is absurd and doesn't mean what most people - including almost every source reporting it - think it means. I'm a total music charts/sales geek and I could break it down in detail, but suffice it to say that A) this is U.S.-only sales; worldwide, Thriller is still the best-selling album of all time by a very large margin and B) RIAA certifications no longer reflect actual album sales and have become almost meaningless to anyone outside the industry. They're now a weird amalgam of album sales (physical and digital), digital singles sales, and streams. Thriller has likely still sold more copies, even in the U.S.

in short: take it easy, everyone

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 20 August 2018 21:44 (one year ago) link

No doubt the Eagles have sold more than the last time the RIAA certified those albums, but "selling" isn't streaming, and selling matters not a whit in 2018.

DON: Well, yeah.

Greatest comment I've seen about the Eagles today, on a friend's FB page about this:

The public like them because their lyrics are decipherable and make singing along easy. Say what you want about their other abilities, but those guys could enunciate.

Hey, everyone. Pleasant Plains here with a new song from the Alternative Nation. Coming out of Boston, the same stomping grounds of Dinosaur Jr., Pixies, Buffalo Tom and Throwing Muses, here's Evan Dando and THE LEMONHEADS with their latest, TAKE IT EASY.

heard "peaceful easy feeling" in the wild today. this makes me want to hear it again. evan dando should stick to suzanne vega, charles manson and love positions covers.

Well, yeah

Eight months before HBO’s Leaving Neverland documentary raised new questions about Michael Jackson’s legacy, executives at the late pop star’s record label and estate were pondering another unexpected -- and unrelated -- development involving his business.

Jackson’s 1982 album, Thriller (33 million copies sold), had just lost the status it held for almost a decade as the best-selling album of all time in the United States, ceding the title to the Eagles’ Their Greatest Hits 1971–1975 (38 million), according to the RIAA. Though the two albums have jockeyed for the top spot since the 1980s, trading the lead five times, executives from both Jackson’s estate and Sony Music were stunned by the news that Their Greatest Hits had gained nine new platinum certifications in a single day from the RIAA for the years 2006 to 2018 -- meaning 9 million additional U.S. album sales had been made or discovered over those 12 years.

“After Thriller being the recognized No. 1 album seller in the United States for a decade, we were obviously surprised and concerned when we were overtaken despite all metrics we use stating otherwise,” Sony Music Entertainment CEO Rob Stringer said in a statement earlier in 2019, before the documentary premiered. “All we are asking for is transparency in the process so we can understand how sales numbers changed so dramatically at such short notice.”

apart from Thriller and the Eagles GH perpetually displacing each other, there is another thing that MJ and Don Henley share, which is what I thought of when I read the first clause of the opening graf…no doubt Henley has been mucho nervous for the past 1 1/2 years…

This guy just left this Half-Price Books after loudly looking for The Long Run on CD. He was asking people, made them search the database, first in-store, then all of the locations in the city. Seriously jonesing to no avail--ended up saying he was going to eBay.

THE LONG RUN

Should've made him blow a gasket by going, "Dude, just get Greatest Hits Vol. II".

today's final jeopardy clue:

"Rolling Stone said this 1976 album had 'the best & worst tendencies of L.A.-situated rock' & was an 'unflattering portrait of the milieu.'"

contestant 3: exile on main st.

The Joe Walsh lineup of the James Gang haven’t cut an album since Thirds in 1971. “We should record at least four things playing the way that we used to,” says Walsh. “I don’t want to use Pro Tools and I want to overdub, because you can’t do that live. But if we can do at least four things new and get them on the Internet, I think with that and a cross section of the old stuff, we’d have all we need to go out and try and kick some ass. I hope we get to do that in the first half of 2012. I really hope it works out.”

Heh, especially with his namesake running for President, I thought it was Walsh’s ties revealed, not the event’s.

Joe Walsh has a rather decent tune on Sheryl Crow's latest.

They're touring next year boasting shows featuring a full performance of Hotel California plus 'A Greatest Hits set', all w/'Orchestral Backing'.

TS: "with an orchestra" vs. "on ice" as the ultimate shark-jump tour shtick

solos that go widdly widdly widdly (Ye Mad Puffin), Friday, 18 October 2019 18:36 (three days ago) link

The orchestra is proving to be a big selling point on the current Who tour. Unfortunately, it’s treacly, predictable as fuck, and pointless. So, while those qualities detract from a Who show, they’ll likely vastly improve an Eagles performance.

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Friday, 18 October 2019 19:32 (three days ago) link

Well, there are loads of Eagles songs with orchestration already.

DON: I'm looking forward to going out on the road with the orchestra. We'll finally be able to present our music as Glenn and I had originally envisioned, but were unable for whatever reason to present as such, in concert on prior tours.

GLENN: We always had the budget for orchestras, but drugs, girls, Budweiser, and girls with drugs and Budweiser don't pay for themselves, ya know!

DON: Well, yeah.
