Just a guess - and I said something like that before in another thread - <br>Frank was a more popular live act than an album seller, i think. I also know a few people who would have gone to a gig but would never take the time to listen to a record. Odd thing, but maybe a lot of people maybe felt that he was very entertaining live and not so much on record...?<br>I have heard throughout my musical career, that ca. on third of the sold units come to a concert. (That counts for Germany, which has a different entertaining tradition than the US, the home of show business.) So, if an act sells 100,000 you book a tour for ca 40 or 30,000 people to attend the shows. <br>I know, that is quite raw...and FZ released more albums than he went on tours. really hard to guess - and just my two cents  ;)
