One of the details that came out during Jack White's divorce is that he makes $62,000 a month. Damn.

This isn't that much money if you consider how famous he is... ADTR was making 10k a day during Warped.

Divided between 5 band members.. and that's not every day of their career, that was just for the duration of Warped. $62K a month for one person is definitely a lot.

omg I'm so nosey I love knowing this stuff. It was so interesting when Zooey's spending details were released when she was divorcing Ben. idk I just can't even imagine having that much money that I'm always interested to know what they do with it all lol. I can't even begin to know what I'd do with all that.

$300k/month five ways is $60k/person/month. i know it's just during warped, but that's pretty much the same as what jack makes monthly. i think it's awesome for everybody, but it's weird that those numbers are basically the same. everyone knows who jack white is, whereas slightly less than everyone knows who a day to remember is. says something about their respective fans' spending habits/support.

I'd be freaking thrilled with 10% of that a month.

ADTR did that for a few months, and probably next to nothing for a few others months. If Jack is averaging $62k per month then he's going to be making big money during summer tours, etc...

I get what you're saying, but they definitely aren't in the same league.

Also factor in the fee owed to the venue for merch sales, fee for booking agent and your manager and possibly more misc fees to be factored in

Almost $750k/yr before tax while he isn't even making new music... that's outta this world.

I don't care enough to go look at the documents, but I'd be interested to see a breakdown of how much income comes from which sources. Does Third Man and it's gimmicky vinyl "innovation" really generate a ton of money? Is it primarily residuals? How about investments or holdings outside of the industry?

Maybe I do care enough to go look at the documents
