Since when is Dolly a "rock star"?Anyway, any list like this that doesn't have Jimmy Buffett on it is lacking. The man is a marketing machine, especially now that he's add a CASINO in Vegas to his empire.Jeff
David Bowie would fit.
I can't believe there was no mention of either Paul McCartney or Mick Jagger. McCartney owns the rights to a tremendous amount of music, including the Buddy Holly catalog, many Broadway shows, and a lot of marching-band music (the kind of things that keep generating money because almost every high school has a marching band). He started buying music rights when he realized how much he was losing by not controlling the rights to Lennon & McCartney's Beatle music. As for Mick Jagger, he's notorious for knowing exactly where every penny he has is allocated--and he has a lot of pennies.
