I find it very hard to believe that his solo stuff has sold 30million. Probably 10mill max

I think it's even a stretch that they sold 20 million records between 2004 and 2016 given how the music industry (and sales figures) were changing at the time.

If I recall, Blaze and D.A. were included in the numbers to get to 100 mill in 2004 unless I'm misremembering.

Of course they didn't - it takes streams conversation into account.

Cheers!

About Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Is it strange that Jon Bon Jovi doesn't have a Hollywood boulevard star?

The guy has done a lot of Hollywood movies, most of them inconsequential, but he also did some soundtracks, including Blaze of Glory, Armageddon and a few more with Bon Jovi.

Do you think that one day it will happen?

if that's the case then the quote is still misleading as he still hasn't "sold" 150 million...

Streams have officially been converted to "pure sales" for quite some time now. If they hadn't been, Taylor Swift would have "sold" around 10 million albums instead of 114.

If they take into account specifically acting and not music, then naw I don't see it happening, unless there are big fans of Pucked on the voting board.
