I'm assuming this is living musicians only since I hear that a lot of dead musicians' estates earn a ton of money. However, I'm not sure. Maybe living musicians outearn dead musicians.

I would have never guessed that U2 and Elton John were in the top 5 at this point. I was surprised at AC/DC too.

Really? U2 is the obvious number 1, particularly considering their latest tour.

So earnings is pretty much worth.

This isn't record sales, just worth as a "product/commodity."

Yes?

Yes?I would say it's a combination of record sales, concerts, appearances, endorsements, etc.

wow, I just listened to a Buble song? HOW THE FUCK DOES THAT SHIT GET WHAT WAS HE? Top 5. That's fucking pathetic.

Now, can't blame him. If I could sing like a fairy and make $70 million, I would.

Buble's fanbase: horny older women with plenty of money to spend on concert tickets and CDs (that's how old they are; they not only buy music, they buy physical copies of it). That's how he's top 5.

Then they bring their daughters and young work friends backstage and Buble PLOWS EM BRO

Hip-Hop industry getting owned. I was sad to see Muse on there. They just might be my most hated band right now.

The title is incorrect - Musicians implies they actually play instruments. Most of these people would use a guitar to slice cheese.

Artist is a more accurate term.

"Artist" applies to some of them (a snotty opinion, but true). "Performers" or "entertainers" would have accuractely hit the mark for all of them.

That's about 12 million per chord for AC/DC.

Buble reminds me of baseball. It's dated and cheesy, but you give a nod that this is what used to be cool
