LONDON (Reuters) – Former Beatle Paul McCartney’s 680-million-pound ($1.04 billion) fortune put him at the top of a list ranking the UK and Ireland’s richest musicians that also highlighted Adele as the wealthiest young music millionaire.
McCartney was followed closely by music and stage impresario Andrew Lloyd-Webber at 620 million pounds, Irish rock band U2 and singer Elton John in the Sunday Times Rich List 2013 to be published on April 21, an emailed statement from the paper said.
McCartney, 70, has topped all the charts for the country’s wealthiest musicians since the Rich List began in 1989, when the former Beatle was worth just 80 million pounds.
