Infographic: How The Beatles made $71 million this year

Forbes found that in the past year The Beatles have collectively pulled in $71 million dollars. It’s no surprise that Paul McCartney earned the most this year, but it is interesting that still touring/living Ringo Starr made less than the deceased John Lennon.


From Forbes:

More than 30 years after his untimely death, Lennon is No. 2 among the Beatles in annual earnings, thanks to his extensive list of songwriting credits. As such, he cashes in on record sales, radio play and productions like Love!

The Fab Four’s drummer, Ringo Starr, ranks third with $6 million. He wrote far fewer songs than his bandmates, but makes up for the lack of publishing income by touring as the frontman of Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band. He’s played over 200 shows in the past 15 years and grosses about $300,000 per night, about one-tenth what McCartney gets.
