I'm a little disappointed that GuruZim didn't mark the 60th birthday of Peter Frampton yesterday.

Here he is, being introduced by Helen Reddy and performing "Do You Feel Like We Do":

I am old as I really knew about him first as part of Humble Pie, Glad he got his life turned around eventually. I wonder if he still has the best selling live album of all time?

Not anymore. Garth Brooks - Double Live holds that spot now.

The doctor merely asked about best selling.

Had he asked for MOST AWESOMELY AWESOME live album of all time, he'd still be the undisputed champion of the world.

WAH WAH WAH WAHWAHWAH.

Frampton Comes Alive is now the fourth best selling live album, behind Double Live, and also Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band Live 1975 - 1985 and The Eagles - Eagles Live. There may have been other live albums on the list as well. I only searched for albums that actually had Live in the name.

It's a little confusing...at some point (around the introduction of the CD), the RIAA changed the rules so that a record was certified based on the number of discs sold, rather than copies sold. Which means that Frampton Comes Alive being 6 times platinum means it sold 6 million copies, but the Garth album being 21 times platinum means it only sold 10 1/2 million copies. That still seems to make it the biggest-selling live album...by just a shade over Eric Clapton's Unplugged, which is at 10 times platinum and was only one disc. Note that the Springsteen box counts as 3 (the number of CDs, not the number of vinyl albums) so it has actually sold a little over 4 million copies. So in terms of raw units sold, I believe it's Garth, Eric, Eagles, and then Frampton.

But there isn't a Garth, Eric, or Eagles fan club card in my wallet, and that's gotta count for something. B^)
