Not anymore. Have bought that album 4 or 5 times over the years. Vinyl, cassette, CD, vinyl again, lol... Something always seems to happen to that one. It is ridiculously expensive on vinyl these days. I'll get it again some day...

No love for the Beatles huh, I thought they were gonna be on the first page. No Genesis? Amazing live shows.

Too bad the jerk that made this thread ruled out solo acts, Elton John would arguably be one of the greatest musicians of our time. That is a future thread idea right there.

I always found it helped if you were stoned when listening to Pink Floyd.
Can confirm. On vinyl, we didn’t know it at the time cause that was all thier was but it is a luxury now.

Sure is, at a premium price too. Wish I never gave up my original collection. I could pay for my house with half of my collection from back then. Slowly building it up again.

I have the white album on vinyl.
I definitely thought about them. I just think Zep has a larger fan base.

We will agree to disagree. I bleed Zeppelin but the Beatles made a lot of pop music and appeal to a very wide audience. My mom likes the Beatles but couldn’t name a Zeppelin song. Zep didn’t start with a massive public pop frenzy and the Beatles listenership was huge when Zep was still young.

Perhaps Spotify would quantify thier listener based.

Ain’t that the truth!

The sound from vinyl is incomparable. Especially when I put the discs through my vacuum cleaner.

I literally threw out my collection in the late 90s. Huge, expensive mistake.

There is a huge revival now though. Our music stores have moved away from CD back to vinyl. Guess everyone is streaming music these days, myself included.

Vinyll is analog and got everything that went into the mike. Digital did not. To be honest I can’t tell if it is simply the pop and hiss of a vinyl record that takes me back to that time or if it is really my hearing picking up what is missing. No one cares, it feels better so it is.

OK, this is every band that has been mentioned thus far from Spotify. This is the number of different listeners, not the number of plays. I am surprised, I didn't take into account that Queen had just put out a movie that was huge. Also, Elton John over half a million more than the Beatles. Sad about Genesis, I thought that would be higher but a tip of the protective head gear to The Clash - I almost picked them for this. I figured they were at the top but not in the elite. No way I could argue volume.

1Queen
33,113,968​
2Elton John

Honestly Jimi is where I though Genesis would land and vice versa.

I wonder what they get for royalties for each play.

LMGTFY Tin. Spotify pays $0.006 to $0.0084 per play.

Math time. Lets say these guys get the full $0.0084

Queen = 33,113,968/month x $0.0084
= $278,157.00/month / 4 members
= $69,539.00 per month each
= $834,471.00 per year each on Spotify alone.

Good God, can that be right?

I would imagine Queen, and Elton John are on the top due to the recent movies. In opinion, Spotify isn't really a solid tell tale here. (though it does definitely contribute to this discussion) Not everybody uses Spotify. Especially the majority of "our" generation that is likely to listen to this discussions topic of music. Just my outlook on that. Carry on, eh?

Yeah, there is a demographic there Eh? I am sure the Beatles may have done better if my parents generation were better represented on streaming services. Stuff like The Seeds as WB suggested would also do much better. The whole 60’s scene is under represented or is second generation listeners.

Just so Leroy stops texting me - The Spice Girls had 7,191,080 which would have put them 12th above Iron Maiden.

The majority of iron maiden fans don’t use Spotify. They use their gramophone. J/K. Live After Death on vinyl is just wonderful.
