do you guys have any idea?

EDIT: Looking into this I have found that it seems the wikipedia info on UYI sales is wrong unless they have undervalued the sales of GN'R Lies which seems doubtful. It seems as though the two UYI albums sold at least 20 million+ each

What were her plans if she left Axl's payroll.....Go back to cleaning toilets, changing linens, wiping babies asses....general nanny shit?

About 17 millions each.

Edit: This is just from what I think I've read. I don't have any source.

I would imagine each. YYI were HUGE when they hit.

In addition to the numbers already posted, I want to say that UYI 1 sold more than UYI 2.

Yeah, I would guess that UYI I sold 18 millions and UYI II sold 17 millions.

I believe UYI 2 was a bigger hit than 1. I remember reading it somewhere.

I think I've read that UYI I ended up selling better, but UYI II was more popular in the beginning.

On the other side, I haven't really read much about GN'R other than on this board last years, so it's very possible that it's here I've read it, and as you guys may know, it's a lot of bullshit said here.

You could be mine ... the first single they had was in UYI 2 ... so I think at the beggining this one sold more but finally UYI 1 sold more copies...

Yes Sir ... Yes Sir ... Yes Sir ...

I remember Axl saying somewhere that he wanted to continue to tour the albums until they've sold as much as Appetite each.. I don't have anything more to add with the numbers already posted

how can that be true?

Guns N' Roses have sold around 100 million albums, that's common knowlage;

Appetite-30 million (28 to be precise)
Chinese- 3-5 million
Greatest Hits- 7-8 million
TSI- 3 million
are all we known numbers so if UYI 1 and 2 sold 35 million combined then had means GNR Lies must have sold 20 million which can't be true

What were her plans if she left Axl's payroll.....Go back to cleaning toilets, changing linens, wiping babies asses....general nanny shit?

Still I highly doubt live era sold more than 2 million, it only went gold in the US still leaving GNR Lies with around 20 million sales which can't be right. What I am trying to say is you tube claims the UYI albums sold around 34 million between the but it seems as if each sold over 20 million
