The latest rich list was compiled from sources including Pollstar, the RIAA, Nielsen SoundScan, artists' managers, lawyers and many of the artists themselves. The figures are comprises of concert ticket sales, royalties, publishing, merchandise sales, endorsement deals and other such business ventures.

Of course, if all artists - dead or alive - were to be considered, Michael Jackson would top the list by far with a mighty $160 million (£99 million) earned over the past 12 months.

He's not allowed to be included in this loud and lively list though so we present to you a Top 10 countdown of the year's highest earning musicians.
