The Sunday Times Rock Rich List
Every year The Sunday Times publishes its highly anticipated "Rich List” of all the wealthiest people in Britain. The Rolling Stones are collective the richest band of this year.
Paul McCartney and wife Nancy Shevell remain at the top of the rock music table, with a fortune of £760m, and U2 as a unit come second with £500m.
But Mick Jagger reaches third position on his own with £235m, while colleague Keith Richards is next with £220m. With the addition of Charlie Watts (11th) and Ronnie Wood (24) the band’s total value is £630m. They’re thought to have become wealthier by £40m over the past year.
Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones have amassed £268m between them, and Pink Floyd men Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason total £235m.
The estate of the late David Bowie gives his widow Iman and son Duncan Jones a new entry to the rich list with £90m.
The Sunday Times Rich List is compiled from available sources including land, property, other assets and shares.
