There’s no shortage of artists that grew to be legends in their respective genres of music; DJ Kool Herc on the grounds of pioneering hip-hop; the late, great Elvis “The King of Rock & Roll” Presley; and even “Weird Al” Yankovic for being the most iconic parody musician of our time.
You can’t help but wonder, though, that there must be a great deal of money to be gained from such a great deal of fame. These are a few of the richest rock bands who’ve made more than just a decent living playing their music.
When you think of Aerosmith, you typically think of frontman Steven Tyler. And when you think of Steven Tyler, you can’t help but think about that incredible vocal range of his. Still though, if the money maker wasn’t Steven’s voice, it was clearly the music these cats created as a group.
Holding over 85 million units sold, 25 gold albums, 18 platinum albums, and 12 multi-platinum albums under their belts, Steven (AKA The Demon of Screamin’) and his bandmates have surely been screaming all the way to the bank.
