Music's Top Ten

The musical rich list top ten:
1. Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell – £760m
2. Andrew Lloyd-Webber – £715m
3. U2 – £500m
4. Elton John – £280m
5. Mick Jagger – £235m
6. Olivia and Dhani Harrison – £220m
6. Keith Richards – £220m
8. Ringo Starr – £200m
9. Michael Flatley – £198m
10. Sting – £185m

Non-musicians George Harrison’s widow Olivia and son Dhani Harrison and Duncan Jones and Iman Abdulmajid, who come in at 29 with their own combined wealth and that which they recently inherited from David Bowie. Adele actually comes in at number 30 in the overall list, but is again the richest musician under 30 years old. She’s trailed by Ed Sheeran, who apparently now has £45 million in the bank. In third on the youngster musical money bags list are the members of One Direction collectively, despite losing the £30 million apparently owned by Zayn Malik from their total. Note too that while Adele is now the UK’s richest ever female musician, she still trails behind Irish singer Enya, who has £91 million burning a hole in her pocket.
