Ken and Nancy’s rock ‘n’ roll circus – Life & Style – The Independent

But lately there has been tumult in the Berrys’ musical kingdom. The Spice Girls helped raise EMI’s US market share from last to third out of six in 1997 and plumped Virgin’s profits, but new releases from stars such as Steve Winwood bombed. The Stones, David Bowie and Ms Jackson have undersold industry expectations, despite their multi-million-dollar advances and expensive promotions. When nominations for the Grammy Awards were counted, the Spice Girls were ignored, which doesn’t bode well for the longevity of EMI’s top-selling act.
