"I don't care too much for money," Paul McCartney once sang, but that hasn't kept him from leading Rolling Stone magazine's list of the pop world's richest artists.
The former Beatle, who by some tallies was rock's first billionaire, raked in $72 million in 2002 largely from his first tour in nine years, according to the U.S. magazine's second annual "Rock's 50 Richest" list, to be published on March 14.
Being dead does not keep artists off the list. Elvis Presley, whose songs were licensed for the Disney film "Lilo & Stitch," ranked No. 12. RCA Records also issued a remix single and compilation of his No. 1 hits which both went to #1 worldwide.
