Morrissey: A $70 Thousandaire

From aversion.com:

Just as the promotional cycle for the Moz’s Ringleader of the Tormentors begins to heat up, so does the ill will between Morrissey and his former band mates. This time out, Morrissey’s peeved that Smiths drummer Mike Royce announced he’s hocking rare Smiths material on eBay. Morrissey responded with a statement that claims Royce shouldn’t need the money. By Morrissey’s estimate, the singer’s received more than 1 million British pounds (about $1.6 million) in royalties since the start of The Smiths – that’s nearly $70,000 a year.
Am I the only one who thinks that that's not very much money?
