This week a list of rock’s top earners was published. And for those of you who’ve just finished a night shift at KFC, you’ll be feeling pretty sick once you realise that Phil ‘no hit since 91’ Collins made a massive £6 million last year when all he did was roll around on a yacht with a Portuguese prostitute.

Here it is in all its glory:

1) The Beatles –£55 million
2) U2 – £50 million
3) Sir Elton John-£35 million
4) Rolling Stones-£27.5 million
5) David Bowie-£20 million
6) Sade-£10 million
7) Tom Jones-£5 million
8) Phil Collins-£6 million
9) Spice Girls-£5 million
10) Chesney Hawks-£5.70p
