NEW YORK CITY (Times Staff Reporter) - The Rolling Stones rank fourth on this year's Forbes 100 Most Powerful Celebrities List. The aging rockers slipped two spots from their second-place ranking last year, bringing in 88-million-dollars.
In the "Ensemble" Category, they outdistanced the casts of TV shows 'Grey's Anatomy' and 'Desperate Housewives', the bands Bon Jovi and U2, and movie directors/producers Brian Grazer and Ron Howard.
However, rumors abound regarding a possible merger of members of a "Who-the-hell-are-they?" Category. Talks are currently underway to form a 'supergroup' between Larry the Cable Guy, Deepak Chopra, Gore Verbinski and Valentino Rossi. With combined earnings of 109-million-dollars, this would exceed all others with the exception of Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg and Jerry Bruckheimer.
If the proposed merger takes place, then the already questionable ranking system used to create the list would be thrown into complete chaos. (As if anyone really gives a rat's ass!)
