Easy to dismiss this as a consequence of his death, but, interestingly, the same didn't happen for Prince.

Death sells alright. Probably more than sex. I'm sure the record companies will start to cash in on the trend and male them happen. Artists will have to die to honour their record contracts if sales drop especially when their sex appeal passes it's expiry date.

I never have and never will understand this.
Whoever's buying these records - why didn't they want them until after the bloke was dead?
I don't get it.

They're just hearing about an artist for the first time via people on social media. And then they buy the most popular album so they can join in with the grief boasting about it later the very same day. I did the same with Bowie. Great to meet you all.
