The three surviving members of QueenBrian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon — and Freddie Mercury's estate will each receive $16 million from the re-release of the remastered versions of their second five albums (each double CD includes rare tracks, re-mixes and live material).

The band re-released their first five LPs this past March, but it's the sales of the second five that have gone through the roof. Word is that the band has made a profit of over $70 million so far this year, more than they made from record sales in the first several years of their career.
