Notes Of Interest:

Emperor is selling more CDs than Quiet Riot, and both CDs were released around the same time.

Ugly Kid Joe went from selling a million plus CDs to not even breaking 60,000.

Zakk Wylde’s Reissues aren’t moving at all.

Stuttering John gets exposure everyday on the Howard Stern show, which has something like 10 million listeners a day, and only sold 31,000 copies of his first album and only 2,800 of his last album.   You can’t fail any worse than that.

Notes Of Interest:

Since I pulled up the number for the BulletBoys, I thought I’d check how "Za Za" did, even though we already covered in on August 30th.  "Za Za" sold another 14 copies since then!  My question is, who are these 14 people who wanted to buy this?

Here is the week by week breakdown for Sevendust’s "Home" CD.

Week #1 sold 62,002

Week #2 sold 37,493

Week #3 sold 24,718

The Donnas sold around 700 or so LPs!  The rest were on CD.

Notes Of Interest:

Slaughter’s "Back To Reality" is selling approximately 300 units a week.

Pretty Boy Floyd’s "Pornstars" has only sold 648 copies in 2 months. 

Ratt and Great White both had their CDs released on the same day, and Great White is easily out selling Rat
