                                                  REG STRIKES BACK plat(now gold)

                                                  Lot of Seventies work not certified (Elton john album, Tumbleweed just platinum,Honky just platinum 17/11/70 empty sky)..
                                                  How can Billy Joel be over-certified?. Or maybe you are talking about multiple albums?.

                                                  • Most Elton John awards are pretty much up to date. He has maybe 7-8 albums undercertified, which is not nothing but considering how large his discography, that's not much.
