  2. Ahm gonna get me a cowboy hat! Come on Bruce, work it out – there must be a graph in there somewhere: stetson + Irish ancestry + crazeee glasses + repeat chorus 3 times, ad lib to fade… = success!

  3. Toby Kieth? Brad Paisley? Rascal Flatts? Kenny Chesney?
    I’m guessing these are all Country singers or somesuch?
    Also, most of the musicians are more than one person….

  4. it’s only money. nobody said these are the 25 most profound, most creative, musicians in the world.
    more power to them. but what does it have to do with the rest of us?
    not much, right?
    making money from music would be nice, of course, but if you make music TO MAKE money you are really in the wrong profession. (unless you’re lady gaga or katy perry of course.)
    otherwise, become a lawyer of a banker.

  5. Lady Gaga reportedly is still in debt to her label. So what exactly are these figures? Advance money? Everything and nothing compared against each other?
