So, two years later I FINALLY unlocked this achievement. I really am surprised that so many people gave my previous solution so many positive votes considering I hadn't unlocked the thing yet. My previous solution speculated on how one could unlock the achievement. Now, here are the facts:
-Anything you buy in the Rock Shop counts towards this achievement.
-The total $100,000 can be spent across several characters.
-The game does not keep track of how much you have spent. You won't know how close you are to getting the achievement until you actually get it.

I made a word document that kept track of how much money I spent in the game. Gaining money in the game is a bit harder than gaining fans, but there are some simple ways of gaining more money:
-Make Setlists in every possible venue and pick songs you know you can Gold Star. The more songs in a setlist, the more money earned.
-Feel free to play the longer, 5-9 song setlists as well. If you know you can 5 star the songs, you'll be in good shape.
-Always take the offers that either double, triple, or quadruple your money, or swap out the last song in the setlist to earn more money.
-Use one of your characters in someone else's band either on a local tour or a Live tour.
-Complete the Endless Setlist (will net you anywhere between $50,000 and $80,000).

Something I did was hired the Spirtual Guru character as soon as I could. His character allows you to have more of the offers granted to you "Double or Nothing," "Triple or Nothing," etc.The Marketing Executive doesn't actually earn you that much more money. The Accountant is a poor choice. Gaining double or earning nothing sounds great, but its really the same as earning the regular amount for each song played. Besides, you don't want to risk doing the Endless Setlist only to NOT get any money from it.

Also, the achievement unlocked for me a few thousand dollars early. It may have been because I didn't do some math correctly, but if you just keep on playing the game and earning money, you should have this achievement in no time.
