Gene sold 80 million copies of his tunes -- Anne Murray sold under 20 million records so far. Gene's career was about 25 years, Anne's continued for more than 40. Only a handful of artists have ever gotten anywhere near Gene's commercial appeal and ~no one with any credibility in music circles~ has ever tried to equate Gene with "commercial artists" -- a folkie from birth to tragic, untimely, heart-breaking, death.
