Total Guitar has put together a list of the top-grossing guitarists based on their bands’ earnings as reported by Forbes. So, among others we learn that Matt Bellamy with Muse and Angus Young with AC/DC have each earned $35 million over the past 12 months. Kinda makes the 71 bucks I’ve hauled in seem less impressive. Oh well. TG had this to say about their list making criteria:
Although we realise not all of these figures will be recognised as guitarists first and foremost, they are all guitar-players and use the instrument live and in their recordings.
Jump on over to find out who came in at #1 with a ridiculous $195 million total.
