How does Peter Frampton follow his epic smash album "Frampton Comes Alive", or Meatloaf try to follow his huge best selling album "Bat out of Hell"? Not very well. Peter Frampton's next album "I'm in You" sold roughly 1/8th of the amount of copies "Comes Alive" sold....How'd Meatloaf do with his follow up to "Bat Out of Hell?" After blowing out his voice touring for "Bat," and having emotional issues from trying to handle stardom, and losing his album producer Todd Rundgren...he eventually went platinum with 1981's "Dead Ringer," but sold no where near what his most epic album did...here's more about the albums that saw sales for rockers fall off a cliff from what they had once achieved, including the Cars album "Door to Door" (who even remembers that?), Boston's "Walk On,"
Def Leppard's "Slang," "Van Halen III," and more.
