A link in the above article takes you to "How The Beatles Earned $71m This Year, Sort Of", with George and Ringo making $6m, John $12m (October 2012 - October 2013 and Paul $47m (June 2012 - June 2013).

Scarily the article mentions how John's estate could make more from a greater amount of official merchandise.

Pleased to see Charles M Schulz, creator of the Peanuts gang, at number 3 with $37mheart.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

A totally non-Beatle related question...but have to ask...how does Einstein make money enough to make the list??? Does his estate sell I Met Einstein and All I Got Was a Stupid T-shirt merchandise???

According to here "Nearly 60 years after his death, Albert Einstein is still making money, mainly through the rights to his name and his iconic image.".  I'd be here till christmas 2034 if i had to guess who was the 5th hightest earning, never would have went with Einstein.

 

Who sang the song Poison or You're Posion, i could look it up on youtube but then i'd either have to look at the band or hear the song.

"White Album - My joint-fave Beatles album along with Revolver. They show the two sides of Beatles. Revolver's very controlled - even though it's also very innovative. The White Album's playful and almost ramshackle. It's like a scrapbook kept by a genius. Fantastic stuff."
