Forbes' Richest Musicians

THAT'S WHAT I WANT: Dr. Dre was the highest-paid musician of 2012, with $110 million, according to the new Forbes list of tuneful tycoons. Dre's massive haul was due in large part to his Beats by Dre line of headphones and related products. The rest of the top five earners? Roger Waters of Pink Floyd ($88m, thanks to "The Wall Live" tour); Elton John ($80m, also from touring); U2 ($78 m, courtesy of the 360 Tour); and Brit boy band Take That ($69m). Taylor Swift raked in $57m, the same as Paul McCartney; Justin Bieber and Toby Keith tied for 10th place with $55m apiece. Jay-Z and Beyoncé took in a combined $37m. You want to know more?
