    Duran Duran have sold 100 million albums and weren't even sub-headliners.

    Yes because he gets his money for nothing and his chicks for free.

    That was a wiki number.

    Billboard has printed 70mil in one article, another online source has 43mil.

    Either way saleswise, DD is easily in the top 5-10 best selling acts ever to play Coachella. Though I'm curious on figures for Sly Stone and everything Booker T Jones appeared on.

    Bands often take the amount of platinum records they have and multiply it by a million even if platinum in the United States and Latvia or 2 different numbers.

    This just in from my 17 year old son: "Dire Straits could never headline. They wouldn't even play at night."

    How long should I ground him for?
