Who are the Richest Rock Stars?

Pink Floyd
Forbes has unleashed its list of the “World’s 25 Highest-Paid Musicians” for 2013, and the roster features some big names in the rock world.

Coldplay scored the highest among rock talented, landing at No. 5 on Forbes’ list and earning roughly $64 million this year, much of it coming from the band’s world tour in support of the group’s current album, Mylo Xyloto. Former Pink Floyd singer and bass player Roger Waters did pretty well for himself, too, landing at No. 15 on the list and pulling in $44 million from his “The Wall Live” trek. That tour has actually raised almost half a billion dollars over the past three years—how crazy is that?

Another rock name, Muse, is neck-and-neck with Rihanna for the No. 16 place on the roster, with each earning about $43 million. Likewise, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Dr. Dre are tied for the No. 20 spot, with both of them pulling in $40 million, the Peppers from their tour in support of their latest full-length, I’m With You.

Forbes bases its standings on estimates of gross income brought in by each musician or band between June 1 of 2012 and June 1 of 2013.
