From "David McCandless, author of the book Information Is Beautiful. rolled up his sleeves, researched the available data and created this beautiful infographic that shows how hard life is these days for most music artists (unless they’re Lady Gaga).

McCandless warns himself that the data was very hard to research, and that it may not be 100% accurate. He also warns that “these figures do not include publishing royalties (paid to composers of songs).”.
