Robert Cherry of the Cleveland Plain Dealer profiled Guns N’ Roses to mark the 15 year anniversary of the release of ‘Appetite for Destruction’, an album which has cleared over 15 million copies and still sells over 5,000 a week. The album’s producer Mike Clink said, “[Geffen A&R coordinator] Tom Zutaut came out to the studio toward the end of the sessions for a playback, and he said, ‘Mike, what do you think this record is going to sell?’ I said, ‘Two million copies.’ And I felt good about that. And he said, ‘You’re wrong. This is going to sell 5 million records.’ … We were both wrong.” Cleveland.com has since removed the article.
