Rock stars are always somewhat associated with a life of wealth and glamour. We all know most of them are rich – but we have no idea how rich exactly. Well, at least for the biggest whales in the ocean, that’s about to change. Let’s take a look at some of the richest rock stars of all time. Note: we might be off a penny or two, but I doubt that matters with numbers this high.
Johnny Cash – $300 million
That’s a decent amount of dollars, isn’t it? Johnny Cash made music successfully for pretty much his entire life, so it’s only natural he saved himself a nice paycheck.
Dave Matthews – $300 million
Dave isn’t the most known person outside of the US, but he’s won two Grammys already. He’s still relatively young – only slightly over 50 – so he could go on for a few more years, maybe even adding some money to his net worth.
Keith Richards – $340 million
Considering how much Keith has probably spent on drugs, that’s a healthy financial situation he’s in.
Ringo Starr – $350 million
He wrote Yellow Submarine and lots of other Beatles songs and made plenty of money from his part in the most successful band in history.
