Good to see Bon Jovi, The Rolling Stones, and Fleetwood Mac in there too! Keep in mind a lot of these performers tour each year, release new albums and have extensive deals with endorsements. Madonna was on top of the list LAST year, but not this year. She did not have an album or tour last year. Pretty amazing! I can see why everyone wants to be a singer these days!
