The Big Monies

The Sun: U2 Are Top of the Pots with GBP 42M (6-16-2002)
From The Sun:

June 15, 2002

U2 ARE TOP OF THE POTS WITH GBP 42M

ROCKERS U2 made the most money of any band in the world last year, new
figures reveal. The Irish group earned GBP 42million AFTER expenses for
touring, lawyers fees and agents. Music magazine Rolling Stone said rap mogul
Dr Dre was second on GBP 35million followed by The Beatles on GBP 32million,
thanks to their compilation album called 1.

Fourth was the Dave Matthews band (GBP 31million). Madonna came fifth
with GBP 29million, which included a recording advance of at least GBP
14million.

The only other Brit in the Top Ten was Sting -tenth on GBP 16million.

ooooooh...I can hear the legions of Bono critics already screaming
Hypocrisy! Treason!
