|This is from a Reuters news article:
Three other albums are anticipated to surpass 100,000. Carl Thomas' "Let's Talk About It" (Bad Boy/Universal) is on track for 150,000, while N.E.R.D's "Fly or Die" (Virgin) aims for 115,000-125,000. In both cases, those numbers would handsomely beat the starts of each act's debut set.
A hits album from Guns N' Roses (Geffen/Interscope) will also enter the top 10. Chart watchers estimate Guns' start to be in the same range as the new N.E.R.D.
Duff and Slash was on Virgin Radio's Superstars show earlier tonight. Among the things they talked about were Velvet Revolver, GN'R (how GN'R broke while being on tour with Aerosmith and how Duff didn't remember many things from the Use Your Illusion tour) and the Greatest Hits album (Duff didn't even know what songs were on it and he would've picked different tracks if he had any input on it. Slash would've made it a bit more provocative).
Slash mentioned how the raw tracks of the Use Your Illusion albums sounded better than the released version.
They also requested the songs played on the show, for example Stone Temple Pilots' "Sex Type Thing", Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box" and Queens Of The Stone Age's "Feel Good Hit Of The Summer".
Hopefully Virgin Radio will archive the show like they've done with the other shows in the coming days. Check the site for information.
