Music Rich List Revealed
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Rod Stewart, David Bowie and Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne are among a host of Classic Rock-related names in The Sunday Times’ 2010 Music Rich List.
Jagger’s estimated fortune of £190m ranks him at No.7 in the chart, with Richards at No.10 with £175m.
Rod The Mod comes in at No.22 with £105m, followed by Bowie (No.23, £100m) and Ozzy and Sharon (No.24, £95m).
Other notable entries include:
26= Roger Waters (£85m – that won’t please Gilmour, who’s a few places below)
26= Charlie Watts (£85m)
29 Robert Plant (£80m – and that won’t please Page, who’s also few places below)
32 David Gilmour (£78m)
33= Brian May (£75m)

35 Roger Taylor (£70m)

One notable absentee from the Top 50 is Ronnie Wood, who has dropped out of the chart after a difficult year including divorce from his wife, Jo. Wood is believed to be worth £20m.
You’re probably wondering who’s No.1. Well, it’s Edgar Bronfman, the chairman and chief executive of the Warner Music Group, with a fortune of a cool £1,640m.
Second is former Zomba record company owner Clive Calder with £1,300m. Lagging somewhat behind at No.5 is Paul McCartney with £475m.
At 987,455th place is Classic Rock‘s Geoff Barton, who’s £124.60 in the red.
The 22nd annual Sunday Times Rich List – the full version of which includes non-music types, natch – is published in a special 104-page supplement this Sunday, April 25.
