15 Richest Rock Singers: From Springsteen to Jimmy Buffett, Bono, and Paul McCartney
Face it ... We're a society obsessed with celebrity wealth.
Whether it's the 20 Richest Rappers, Ten Richest DJs, Eight Richest Musicians in their Teens and 20s, or the Five Richest Celebs in the Music Business, you can count on Crossfade to narrow down the ridiculously long, arbitrary lists published mainly by Forbes and occasionally by some obscure website nobody's really ever heard of.
Earlier this week, CelebrityNetworth.com published a list of the 67 richest lead singers in the world. That's too fucking many rich rockers. So we've narrowed the list down to 15 for your convenience.
Check it after the cut.
15. Don Henley - $200 Million
Eagles man Don Henley checked into the Hotel California money pit in 1977 and hasn't looked back since.
14. Bruce Springsteen - $200 Million
The Boss's latest record, Wrecking Ball, was released earlier this year. But it took a Democratic National Convention to really boost sales. Springsteen's "We Take Care of Our Own" was played immediately following President Obama's speech and saw a 409-percent rise in sales, according to Billboard.Next Page
