Thank U so Much 4 the info
AC/DC could be a little bit higher (but they don´t have a greatest hits such as aeromith´s greatest hits from their 70´s hits)
Also is Guns N´ Roses Undercertified what about Illusion (are they eligible for 8 x platinum)
I´m surprise to see no Bon Jovi in that list!!! is he close to Chicago´s certifications??
Bon Jovi is at 35M according to RIAA. But they do have a few undercertified albums. Slippery When Wet and CrossRoad both need an update and This Left Feels Right & One Wild Night was never certified (Gold)
Def Leppard is at 35M too. They also have a couple of undercertified albums. Vault should definately get an update, maybe Hysteria and Rock of Ages too.
But right behind Chicago is Foreigner at 37.5M (although I just have them at 37M?!?). Their classic album "Four" is also undercertified. Possibly a lot! Last cert was 1991!
Still all three are probably behind Chicago anyway, as they are also undercertified
And you're right, AC/DC figure could be a bit higher (Live & Live 2cd need upddates, possibly others).
But Pink Floyd should be a LOT higher. DSOTM alone needs another 5 or 6 platinum discs!
