I subscribe to Music Week which is a music industry paper which publishes UK sales figures albums, singles, downloads etc .
There were some interesting figures for the top selling artists of the decade. Obviously Fish etc are unfortunately not in that league.
However these are only for the best selling albums/artists. I dont know if there is someone somewhere collecting all this information for every artist ?
I often wonder how many albums artists like Fish, Marillion etc sell in the UK and worldwide and if those figures are actually recorded.
I get the impression that Marillion need to be constantly recording and playing live just to make a living.
It would also be interesting to know how much artists get from the sale of a CD or download. Its probably a very small amount which is why its best to buy Fish CDs and merchandise directly from Fish so that more of the money goes directly to him
But I guess noone is likely to divulge this sort of information ? Maybe DocBob could find out ????

I feel similiar. I have listened to excerpts of each song from 13th Star several times and live and apart from some of what I see as the rockier tracks like Manchmal I'm not that keen.I don't like what I see as the ballads much. Just an opinion!
