Sit N Spin Surprising Artists that have never had a #1 album!

Willie Nelson in Redmond, Washington 2008
Last month, “WEIRD AL” YANKOVIC scored his first ever #1 album.  It wasn’t shocking that he’d never had one before, but it was a big deal that he got one now, after 30-plus years in the business.
And last week, TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS landed their first #1 album in 37 years.  That career-long drought was a little more surprising.
Now, Billboard.com has put together a list of “10 Surprising Artists Without a #1 Album.” Check out the full piece here. http://bit.ly/1oEcStg
 
1.  David Bowie.  He’s had seven Top 10 albums, and four in the Top Five, but none that have topped the Billboard 200.
 
 
2.  Marvin Gaye.  His 1973 album, “Let’s Get It On”, reached #2.
 
 
3.  The Who.  They’ve had ten Top 10 albums, and they’ve hit #2 twice:  With 1973′s “Quadrophenia” and 1978′s “Who Are You”.
 
 
4.  Cher.  She hit #3 with her most recent album, “Closer to the Truth”, and got up to #2 with “Look At Us”, the album she put out with Sonny Bono in 1965.
 
 
5.  Sting.  He’s had ten Top 10 albums as a solo artist, with three of them hitting Number Two.  But he DID have a #1 album with The Police.  “Synchronicity” spent 17 weeks at #1.
 
 
6.  Aretha Franklin.  She’s made it to #2 twice . . . with “I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You” in 1967 and “Aretha: Lady Soul” in 1968.
 
 
7.  Willie Nelson.  His 1982 album “Always on my Mind” spent four weeks at #2, but couldn’t reach #1.
 
 
8.  Tina Turner.  Her 1984 album “Private Dancer” spent 11 weeks stuck at #3 behind Prince and the Revolution’s “Purple Rain” at #1 and Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.” at #2.  And “All the Best” in 2005 hit #2.
 
 
9.  Dr. Dre.  “The Chronic” spent six weeks at #3 in 1993, and his album, “2001″ spent three weeks at #2.
 
 
10.  KISS.  They don’t have a #1 . . . but they’re the American band with the most top 40 albums, with 26.  They got closest to #1 with 2009′s “Sonic Boom”, which debuted and peaked at #2.
