In terms of positon, ahead of Justin Biebre (23rd) Celine Dion (29th) Westlife (34th) and Il DIvo (35th) which is all good news for those who worry about the quality of music in the world. But behind the very awful Andre Rieu (12th) which I find amazing.
On a serious note he must be oldest on the list (although the Stones arent too far behind) and to manage 56 long concerts and be seen by just short of half a million people is a fantastic tribute to his energy, the band, and his enduring appeal. Wondering what I will be up to in my 78th year !
