Who knows. Who cares?

and make those claims ?

Ditto.

I've no idea, but there are many, many, MANY artists who've outsold him, something Jerry's inflated ego finds hard to comprehend. I remember seeing him onstage in 1989 backed by members of Queen, The Kinks and The Moody Blues, and thinking how all those groups have sold far more records than JLL. Not that big sales = great music, otherwise we'd all be Michael Jackson fans (outsold only by The Beatles and Elvis).

I believe there is some truth in it or he wouldn't be talking about it
A lot of record companies/producers etc has ripped artist off and cheated them out of money Little Richard etc that's been well documented
When whole lotta shaking came out they had to build 2 new pressing plants to keep up with demand it sold so much so who really is to say how much it sold
Jerrys inflated ego ? a lot of artist have inflated egos nothing new and some book writers
comparing Jerry to Queen the kinks is like comparing apples to oranges Jerrys a one man show don't really need 4 or 5 people to keep a crowd excited and interested in a rock n roll show hes got more talent in his left hand than all the Queen punk band put together

Punk? I thought Queen were the very antithesis of punk.

Personally, I find Queen's 1973-1991 output consistently strong, more so than (say) David Bowie or The Rolling Stones over the same period.

I had the pleasure of chatting to Brian May at the soundcheck for Jerry's 1989 London show. Lovely bloke.
