    That album is Bernie's cash cow. I am not surprised he keeps track of the competition. The GH album has made it possible for Bernie to live comfortably and do whatever he wants to do.

    Right! And not to trivialize his sizable contributions, but for his few years in such a long-lived band, he has been paid royally! He could "take it easy", and the checks kept/keep rolling in!
    I noted the interviewer said Bernie answered "most every question". Makes you wonder what he asked him!

    I'm thinking it's because it's such a huge deal to be the best-selling album of all time. I doubt he was obsessively keep track of sales figures all the way through his life, but when one day you get told that that your album is in the top five and still selling, you might start wondering if it would move up further... and you might start keeping an eye on the sales figures to see if and when that happened.

    I tend to agree. Very few people have ever been in the position Bernie or the other Eagles members are in as far as having the best-selling album in the U.S. For Bernie it may be just a matter of watching or reading the news whenever new sales figures gets published.
