Inspired by the 10cc topic. Obviously Queen is more famous than 10cc since they were prominent two decades, 70ies and 80ies, except in the USA where they fall after 1980.
So, 1980 they had have 5 back-to-back top-10 studio albums both in US and Britain. So, what if they would have called quitt right after the huge success of The Game, bites the dust and grazy little thing, and never released Flash, Hot space etc.
What do you think, would they still be classical top band in the USA also?
