Opps I was wrong about the Pink Floyd album.

Here are some interesting facts:
The Eagles "Greatest Hits" sold more copies in the US then Thriller.
Pink Floyd was on the Billboard charts twice as long as Thriller.
Rolling Stones had 36 top tens, Micheal Jackson???
The Beatles had 19 #1s, Janet Jackson had 6, Micheal had ??? Didn't make the top ten list.
The Beatles were number one for 132 weeks, Micheal Jackson 50 weeks.
"Westside Story" spent 17 more weeks at number one than Thriller.
Jackie Gleason and Glen Miller were on the top ten twice as long as Thriller.

Nice to know we are not insane as a society!

Jimmy Buffett fact:

He is one of eight persons to have reached No.1 on the New York Times best sellers list for both fact and fiction. His company includes:

Ernest Hemingway
John Steinbeck
William Styron
Irving Wallace
Dr. Seuss
Mitch Albom
Glenn Beck.

Not bad, I'd say

Hmmm...I guess Caribbean Drunken Rock & Roll does count on this list huh?

Default Rush

No mention of Rush so far.
From Wikipedia: "Over the course of their career, Rush has come to release 24 gold records and 14 platinum records (3 of which have gone multiplatinum), placing them within the top 3 for the most consecutive gold albums by a rock band."
I always liked them, but after seeing the Rush in Rio DVD and the accompanying "behind the scenes" DVD, I have a new respect for these guys.

Michael Jackson has had 13 #1 singles on Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart, trailing only The Beatles (20), Mariah Carey (18) and Elvis Presley (18 or 17, depending on source). This total does not include "We Are the World", co-written by Jackson and credited to USA for Africa, or the four #1 singles by The Jackson 5.
Jackson had 28 top ten hits on the Billboard Hot 100, one less than The Beatles (29), and trailing Elvis Presley (36) and Madonna (37).
Led Zeppelin's has had 10 songs on Billboard's Hot 100, with only "Whole Lotta Love" making the Top 10.

I lost count of the number of bands that sung "You need cool air" instead of the correct "You need coolin' " when performing "Whole Lotta Love"

Back in the day, when my band played "Beast of Burden" we always sang "I'll never be your pizza burnin'". Stupid I know, but we laughed. Ah, youth.
