Rockers Raking It In

Monday, February 25th 2013 12:30

See which artists made an impression on Billboard magazine's "Music's Top 40 Money Makers 2013"

Compiled by measuring touring revenue, music sales, publishing royalties and other streaming and on-demand figures over the past 12 months, Bruce Springsteen was the top-earning rocker, claiming the second spot and grossing $33.4 million (1st place was taken by Madonna).

Roger Waters was in at number 3 for taking $21.1 million.

Worthy of note was Valen Halen's entry at #4 for $20.1 million. Their "Different Kind Of Truth" tour drew more than half a million fans - even more impressive when you consider that 32 shows were cancelled due to Eddie's surgery. 

Also included in the list were Nickelback at #17, The Red Hot Chili Peppers at #25, The Rolling Stones at #26, Rush at #28, The Black Keys at #32 and Journey at #35.
