Led Zeppelin sold 37 million copies, and despite not being available on streaming services and despite being a really good album, look what Plant sold? Any questions? Then go about your business.
I didn’t much care for the first single “Rainbow” and didn’t pursue the new Robert Plant album but I have heard it now and it is a very strong.

The kids would love it of course. From the cheap seats you wouldn’t see the human decay going on. With technical advances the aged sound can be corrected and whoa nelly the cash would pour in like the Hoover Dam sprung a lead.
