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.

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.

GLENN: Not the first time he awkwardly slapped some bongos...

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.
