    That's great...good to have something positive
    Janie Liszewski did the IMPOSSIBLE she helped Eddie Van Halen get better. Deal with it.

    Thought we all could use some good news!
    It's one of those albums that just keeps on selling a little bit at a time for a long time.
    Japan can't be too far off.They were getting close.

    Right on. 40,000 is a pretty big deal here. We have 1/10th of the US population. It's been a long time since a real "rock" band has hit gold here.

    40,000 copies sold doesn't sound like that much to me....you know for a fact they sold more concert tickets and tshirts which cost more...if each city averages 10,000 tickets sold in Canada,and they played 5 shows here so far...then I guess most of the fans at the shows bought the cd too...but that means 10,000 fans bought tickets and not the cd..$171. For a ticket.$16. For the cd....go figure.

    Eddie said it best during soundcheck in Toronto in 2004 (referring to the border): "They drew the line in the wrong spot".

    Yes, he was (mostly) sober at the time too.

    With that logic, they'd be triple platinum in the us by now.

    This is why tickets sold is a bigger proof of a band's success than albums sold. Anyone can buy a cd, but for a concert, fans will have to buy tickets, travel to the arena, pay for parking, and sometimes take time off from work.
