    Default How many copies would a new album with Dave sell?

    I think it would sell 1 million (platinum).
    Wolfie is not Mike, but he's more than ok.
    Mike is gone, but not forgotten. They played some amazing shows from 2007-2015; some people are in denial about it.

    Hard to say, the future is, but I can see 1 it will sell.

    If it's any good? Maybe 1 mill.

    If it's not? 400,000

    I think a good album with Dave would do at least 2 million. Maybe 3 if it had a couple of rock radio hits.

    I think any album with Dave would probably get a million.

    i think it well sell a half mil right off the bat and then the rest would depend on the quality of the recording.

    if they thought it would sell as many records as u think, they wouldn't be touring - they'd be recording.

    The key to the question is "in what amount of time?" It COULD sell 1 million in 3 years. It could sell one million in 8 weeks. If it had MONSTER radio hits after a successful tour it MIGHT sell 200,000 the first week. Then it's about a 50-60% dropoff every week until it levels out or another radio or press hit happens. High school musical (second highest CD debut week this year at 600,000+) sold 970,000 in two weeks but they had a built in audience and a TV channel pumping promos for the thing for months ahead of time.

    They've been hyping the shit out of that High School Musical- that's all I see on the internet (yahoo, etc) and in magazine articles and ads. It's overkill.

    I think a new album with Dave (along with a decently promoted single or album track) would go gold pretty soon - couple of months. But not until the course of a year, would it go platinum.
    Wolfie is not Mike, but he's more than ok.

    If they put out a new album they'll take over the world again. People are hungry. Nothing new in rock is even noticeable. Everybody Wants Some.
