A to Z of Making It, Music, My Stories

Randy Rhoads

“Crazy Train” just got a 4x Platinum award in the U.S. And my favourite track “Mr Crowley” also achieved a Gold certification in the U.S.

People are still listening.

These songs didn’t top any chart nor did they get extensive radio play. I don’t think they even got a proper single release.

They are album cuts and the popularity of these songs is due to the fans.

Metal fans are the most loyal. We are the ones that still like to buy because we are completists. The collection needs to be complete.

And Data is the new recording business.

Streaming services will tell the artist how many listens and in which cities and countries.

280+ million streams on Spotify for “Crazy Train”. Add in the counts from other streaming services and the number will keep getting bigger.

It’s taken a long time but it’s happening.

Expect to see more old songs and favorite album cuts rise to the top.
