okay...no net researching allowed, just take a guess:
What artist or group sold the most records during the 1970s ?
I saw this on a biography and at first didnt believe it, and who knows, maybe its not true but I'll defer that debate until later...

It certainly must be the most IMPORTANT band of the 1970's, Led Zeppelin. Don't tell me I'm wrong now!

The Dark Tower

Fearless Vampire Killers (1967)?

Now I dont know how official these claims are, but I have read and heard that The Carpenters sold the most records during the 1970s which may come as a shock to many people.

Actually do enjoy a lot of The Carpenters music, but even I was surprised at how popular they were at the time. Read somewhere they had the most gold records during the 70s so figured they were a pretty good guess to your question.

It may have been Japan that tipped the scales. They had great success in the US, but incredible demand in Japan during the 70's. They even released a live album there.

I was gonna guess Elton John. When I was growing up, you couldn't go 10 minutes without him playing on the radio.

Oh yes, Elton John...you are so right, I would guess him too. I remember hearing him on the radio constantly.
