Bon Jovi Named Highest-Paid Rock Musicians of 2013

(Classic Rock) Bon Jovi are back at the top of one chart: Forbes Magazine's highest earners chart for the year June 2012 to June 2013. Jon Bon Jovi and co may be going through the wars with an unresolved feud sending guitarist Richie Sambora home from their Because We Can world tour, and drummer Tico Torres enduring two hospital dashes over the summer.

But that didn't stop them bringing in $79m in the twelve-month period less only than pop stars Madonna and Lady Gaga, who made $125m and $80m respectively. It's a significant increase from last year's figure, when Bon Jovi made $60m, putting them in overall sixth position. In 2011 they were second only to U2, bringing in $125m.

Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, last year's top earner Roger Waters, Muse and the Red Hot Chili Peppers were all paid more than $40m, says the respected magazine. And although the Rolling Stones generated "just" $39m, they did it over just 19 shows. more on this story
