Axl Rose – $200 Million
Those who have lived under a rock have never heard of Axl Rose or his famous band, Guns N’ Roses. Yet just hearing the name conjures up images of a hard rocker in it for the love of the music. They had two albums on the US charts two years after the band’s start.
Guns N’ Roses is the only band from the 1980s with two albums in the top 100. All of this is true of Rose, who gets the credit for keeping this hard rock band afloat during their many years of rock n’ roll.
