Top 10 Richest Musicians In The World In 2019
2 Paul McCartney Net Worth
Net Worth: $1.1 billion
Being part of the biggest pop group of all time will make you rich enough, but not all of Sir Paul’s $800 million net worth comes from his musical works. A full quarter of it is from an inheritance from his late wife, Linda McCartney, an heir to the Eastman fortune. That being said, successful solo albums and albums with his band Wings have helped, as has a rigorous touring schedule that brings in tens of millions annually.
1 Andrew Lloyd Webber Net Worth
Net Worth: $1.2 billion
While not the pop superstar like much of this list, The Lord Lloyd-Webber – Sir, Baron, or The Right Honourable are also acceptable – has written the most notable music theater in history. Often working with lyrical partner Tim Rice, his seminal theater works of Cats, Phantom of the Opera, Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat have all been the backbone of musical theater in the 20th century.
Aside from the numerous awards for his work, Lloyd-Webber has accumulated a net worth of $1.2 billion. This is aided by the numerous film adaptations of his work, along with his Really Useful Group, an umbrella company that covers all of his materials, making him one of the only musicians in the world to have complete control over all of his musical properties.
