A list of 58 of the Richest Lead Singers in the World!

Posted By: Metal Sludge

 

The Internet – Who are the richest lead singers in the world? The vocalists on this list have sung for bands like The Beatles, Metallica, Guns N’ Roses and The Rolling Stones to name a few. But which lead singer is also the lead money maker? There’s no better job on the planet than being the front man/woman for a major rock band. Not only do lead singers get most of the glory, attention, accolades and groupies… they also make a TON of money. As we compiled the list below, we learned that if you want to make a huge fortune as a lead singer, it definitely helps if you also happen to be a prolific song writer. Furthermore, it doesn’t hurt that these top earners have been in some of the most famous bands in music history with 30+ year careers touring stadiums all over the world and selling millions upon millions of records. The fact that many of the richest lead singers are still performing today is a testament to their talent (or maybe they just love making millions of dollars and getting showered with adulation). Oh, and even if you don’t have an amazing voice, there’s still a ton of money to be made in a band as we learned with our list of the richest drummers in the world. But for today we are going to take a look at the richest lead singers, did your favorite artists make that cut?

#1: Paul McCartney Net Worth – $800 Million (The Beatles)

#2: Bono Net Worth – $600 Million (U2)

***There was a time when Bono’s net worth could have topped $1 billion. Through his private equity venture Elevation Partners, Bono purchased a 1.5% private stake in Facebook long before the IPO. Had the company achieved a $100 billion market cap, Bono may have been the first billionaire rock star. Currently Facebook’s market cap is $44 billion.***
