Highest paid guitarist in the world

Anyone care to take a guess at who the highest paid guitarist in the world is?? NO CHEATING! I know you can google in in 10 seconds...

I would have never guessed in a million years.

***consider factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work***

My guess, Steve Ballmer. He also had a sideline in some computer company or something

Re: Highest paid guitarist in the world

All solid guesses... better than mine. It's an ex-drunkard...

It's JOE WALSH!!!

Coming in at a cool 75 million from Dec 2013 to Dec 2014.

http://en.mediamass.net/people/joe-w...hest-paid.html

He's a cool guy and one of my favorites... with that laid back lead/rhythm style and solid songwriting.

Ummm.... Nevermind!! Look like I've been had... it's a satirical website and I didn't read on in the rest of the article. If I had read on it would have been obvious... as in:

"has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderwalsh - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Joe) and a fashion line called Joe Walsh Seduction.

Looks like the fool is me on this one... lol. If I had any pride I'd be embarassed!!

Sorry about that, but one of you guys is probably right on your guesses. Now I wonder... Who really is the highest paid guitarist?
