The Rolling Stones. We don’t think that actually requires an explanation. The Rolling Stones has made history repeatedly and is still loved by people all over the world. They will live forever.

British music acts earn a lot. Global earnings by the UK music acts have grown with more than 250% since 1999. The royalties they are receiving from across the world has doubled.
We tend to take over the VMAs. Just think Ellie Goulding, One Direction, Mumford and Sons, Ed Sheeran, Calvin Harris…the list continues.

This great artist has been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame three times and he has 18 Grammy Award trophies. Eric Clapton is truly one of the greatest musicians that the world has ever seen.
David Bowie. The Who. Elton John. OK, now we are just throwing around names, but they are all so fantastic and talented that we can’t help it.
