I know this is a personal question & things along those lines shall not be discussed among the members of this form, I am just very curious....

How much would you say Brian Fallon & the other band members are pulling in a year money wise, I support the band any way I can, tickets...Merch...Itunes... Are they at the point where they are living not just comfortably but beyond that?

I remember vaguely in interview with the Black Keys talking about selling out or whatever, anyways they mentioned how they turned down £200,000 so their song wouldn't be used in a mayo commercial even though they had no money at the time.  I'm sure Gaslight made a nice chunk when Casanova Baby was used by USPS since it was a deal through S1D and not Mercury.  Also they probably do really well with merch sales since it seems like they constantly release new shirts/posters.

Relatively speaking, Coachella is probably the largest festival that they played this year.

"There are only so many big-name acts to anchor a big festival, and they earn good money. While the lowest-rung act at Coachella made $15,000 in 2010, headliners can command seven figures. It's turned into a nice living for some acts."  

Honestly, If i were to guess I'd guess that Brian and them make comfortable 6 figure salaries.  I'd ball park they make probably 25-50k/show which is a pretty conservative estimate. Also keep in mind that they have to pay a bunch of costs associated with the shows as well and there are probably other people who get a percentage of it as well.

Out of curiosity I googled video game music licensing fees and it really doesn't sound like there is tons of money there.   One article quoted around $1000-2000 for 100,000 games sold.  Complete anecdotal evidence on my part, but I assume since games like Rock Band/Guitar Hero existed at one point and the developers could pay any royalties to create Van Halen/Metallica/Beatles themed games that it is relatively affordable.

I really have no idea on this and I don't want to speculate off very little info, but something to consider is that, while they might bring in 6 figures from like July of 2012 to now (while they were touring almost non-stop), if they then take from October 2013 to lets say July 2014 off from touring, that's almost a full year without much income, since touring is where most (if not nearly all) their income would come from. So they could make a lot in one year, but then have to save like half of it, to support them in the in between months.
