Are you sure? Can you copy and paste where it says that? The numbers seem very small for it to be all of 2011. Is it last quarter 2011?

Jon, my dear man - you're disappointing your fans. You should be NUMBER ONE!

The fourth paragraph of the article:

"To provide a consistent snapshot of the top Money Makers' earnings power, we focused exclusively on U.S. income sources, ranking artists based upon how much each of them earned in 2011 from a variety of income streams, including touring, recorded-music sales, publishing royalties and payments from an array of digital services. Our calculations were based on each artist's U.S. net earnings, not gross revenue. Due to a lack of sufficient data, our figures do not include revenue from sponsorships, merchandise sales or synchronization deals."

Billboard uses complex formula to get at these numbers these numbers are based for 2011 for 2012 numbers will be released in 2013

320,000 physical CD's in a year. That's kind of shitty.

Considering nothing was really released in 2011, I'd say that's not bad. But because it was a greatest hits, you'd think it'd do better. Alas:

Guided by the business acumen and savvy musical instincts of charismatic frontman Jon Bon Jovi, the New Jersey rock phenom has been a brand and a band on fire for much of the past decade. The Circle tour, marking the most ambitious trek in the band's 30-year history, wrapped last summer with a final tally of $265 million, the sixth-largest-grossing tour of all time. Aside from its prized catalog of hits, the band releases chart-topping new material as well: During the most recent round of live gigs, Bon Jovi put out its first greatest-hits package and new studio album The Circle, each cross-marketed on the AEG Live-produced tour directed by BJM's Paul Korzilius. Bon Jovi moved more than 320,000 physical CDs last year, 1.6 million digital tracks and two new DVD titles in addition to tons of branded merch, maximizing its highly familiar image and sound decades after its humble beginnings.

Good to know it was their first greatest hits. There's a lot of facts in there I'm surprised if true.
