According to Wikipedia, Elvis Presley would take the crown for American artists. And it's sad to see that Madonna, Rihanna, Eminem, Taylor Swift and Mariah Carey all rank higher in album sales than the Eagles.My apologies... I am coming to this thread late and have not read through it in its entirety. What is the definition of “greatest?” If it is an objective standard, such as most album sales, it has to be the Eagles.
I thought the thread was about bands, though, and not solo artists.
Monster catalog and had one of the best Superbowl halftime performances I can recall...in the rain no less... Not sure if that adds bonus points for his score, but we've all seen some other live acts ISH THE BED bigtime on a grand stage.I definitely can get behind that. Prince was a musical genius.
