We all know the usual suspects.  Forbes magazine has named the richest CELEBRITIES and says it’s Oprah on top of the list of 100 this year, with Lady Gaga and Spielberg and Beyonce nipping at her heels.  But what rockers made the list? Clue: We play their music on Jack. You’re welcome! The “Celebrity 100″ ranks celebrities’ power and influence based on media exposure, marketability, and career earnings over the past 12 months.

Who do WE actually care about? You know I love me some JBJ, so I was delighted to see that Bon Jovi – the band – made the list at number 7. Pop stars, movie stars and jocks make up most on the richest list, so, surprisingly there’s only one more rock band on this list (not counting rap or pop, mind you.)

Want to take a guess? And it’s not Mick Jagger or The Rolling Stones or Bruce Springsteen… Think last decade… 2000. (Clue – his wife made the list, too, and she’s an actress).  Think hard, then scroll down…
