Keith was in TWO Pirates movies. I'm sure he got paid more to return for the second. I would never underestimate Keith. He might be quite canny when it comes to his wealth. Mick appears to have a much higher overhead.

Okay, what I want to know is how the hell Ringo amassed $350 Million? What's he got, one, two songwriting credits on Beatle albums? Certainly his little All Starr jaunts don't bring in a lot of dough. His solo career was more successful than the others, but that was the early 70s. The band he used to make money with hasn't toured since 1966, and doesn't appear to be regrouping soon. He had a few acting gigs, also in the 70s. He gets some mechanical royalties from Beatle albums, but $350 Million!!!!????
Man, do you have any idea how much Beatles merchandise gets sold worldwide every year, not to mention residuals on albums, songwriting credits, etc.? That's why Ringo is worth $350 million.

Does it matter? You can't take anything with you where you go. Before death we're all the same. Of course, Sir Michael has a lot of more people to support. But I guess there is enough wealth
to support hundreds of people for generations to come. But there is also the saying "förvärva, förvalta, fördärva" (aquire, administer, ruin). I don't know if there is an English eqivalent to that?

Who knows how Forbes compiles the list? Ringo may have a high net worth from real estate or other items in the public record. Forbes may also be estimating what these people are worth based on what they would get if they sold everything, including publishing and merchandising. What they would sell for would be several times what they earn in a year.

I agree, and these lists are known to be inaccurate, sometimes wildly so.

My only point is that IF Ringo is worth $350MM, it certainly wouldn't surprise me...the commercial reach of the Beatles far exceeds any other act (with the exception of Elvis at his peak, perhaps).

The residuals on the music and merchandise alone would make him a very wealthy man, never mind his other endeavors.

Keith has the lemons.

But Mick the courgettes. I would prefer those, they're more nutritious.

The Cirque du Soleil LOVE show is now in its 12th year in Vegas. A steady earner for Ringo.......

Richest musicians lists seem to put Mick ahead of Keith by a bit. Assuming they have made the same from the Stones, however, you figure...

*Keith's never been divorced and has fewer kids
*Keith's one film project (Pirates of the Caribbean) did better than anything Mick ever did (Freejack, Elysian Fields, etc.)
*Mick never cashed in on a solo career, although he probably has sold few more solo records admittedly since STB went platinum

I dunno.
Forbes has them fairly close.. likely fairly accurate.

Paul McCartney-Net Worth $1.2 billion.
Bono-Net Worth $600 million. ...
Jimmy Buffett-Net Worth $550 million.
Elton John-Net Worth-$480 million.
Mick Jagger-Net Worth $360 million.
Ringo Starr-Net Worth $350 million.
Bruce Springsteen-Net Worth $350 million.
Keith Richards-Net Worth $340 million.

Man, how did Bono get so much? Mick had a 20 year head start on him accumulating wealth.

Bono and U2 have been very canny, business wise. I believe they have tax exemptions
via Ireland's preferential arrangements for high earners in the 'creative industries'.
They share the same Financial Manager (Jan Favie) who is based in The Netherlands.
They seem to avoided the high cost litigation cases that seem to envelop most successful (or rather rich) bands eventually.
And yes, them seem to have had Managers (and perhaps Record labels and Publishers) who haven't screwed them, financially.

You'd think so wouldn't you .

But it's live performance that brings the money in these days ...largely why the Stones are still on the road if you ask many folks winking smiley.


But, when you have hundreds of millions already, the performance of investments probably becomes just as important as your core income in terms of how much money you're making.

actually it's moving those massive super deluxe box set reissues...that's where the money's at.

Paulie prolly has more money than the Rolling Stones combined.

Thanks, Vertigojoe. Come to think of it, the second generation will be the true aristocracy in the sense that they will live solely on inherited money. Poor Sir Michael had to work for his money. Like a commoner!

The Beatles don't get much offa merch,.. Epstein had no idea about such things and the boys signed away 95% of that revenue stream. It is consider among the greatest business errors of all time.
