Guess we know now that it pays to be an old GNR member.

If it was worked out on the basis of talent then Ginger Baker should have all that money combined 50 times over. And thats cuz Keith Moon ain't alive. Happy to sing Ring' at the top of the table though, the FC Barcelona of drummers :) Mes que un Drummer!

As much as it pains me to agree with that sentiment about anybody with "ginger" in his name you do know your stuff Marigold.

Neil Peart made a few million more than Adler?

Steven got the lowest percentage of royalties for Appetite. Guns probably has more worldwide sales than Rush but Peart has played on every Rush album since Fly By Night, writes all the lyrics, and only has two other members to share royalties with. His status as a drummer has granted lots of endorsements as well, among other things.

I loved this part:

Let's just take a minute for the fact that Steven Adler played on one and a half Guns N' Roses albums, that he's been generally unfamous and making the "Celebrity Rehab" rounds for the past two decades, and that he's still worth $15 million.


:lol:

I just look at the fact that Anthem Records, the label Rush is signed to, is run by them and their manager, which means they own their master tapes, and major labels are distributors only. They own their publishing. So they automatically win over GNR as far as money in pocket goes.

Rush has been touring arenas for over 30 years and Rush prob. makes more in swag sales. Just the fact Rush never goes late and gets fined, or cancels shows, they've made more in live shows.

Licensing - about even. You'll hear SCOM or WTTJ as much as Tom Sawyer in a movie.

Why would he refuse to pay the author of his "auto"biography if he's that rich?
