He could have flopped after Dock of the Bay. He could have  put out utter crap. He could have had the one major hit and went back to charting strictly on the R&B charts.

Arguments like this are kind of shiatty. I mean, let's say Hank Williams hadn't drank himself to death by 1953... is it more likely he would have kept putting out music like he had been, or that he would have been swallowed up by the Nashville sound and letting producers put strings and the Jordannaires on his albums because that's what made him money?
