McCartney Named U.K.'s Richest Musician

By The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) -- Paul McCartney is Britain's richest musician, according to the Sunday Times' annual list of the country's wealthiest people.

The former Beatle's personal fortune grew by $75 million last year to $1.2 billion, the newspaper said, making him No. 1 among musical moguls, but 29th on the full list.

Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber is ranked second with an estimated $636 million fortune, and producer Cameron Mackintosh third with $533 million.

Madonna, included on the list because she lives in London, ranked fourth with an estimated fortune of $361 million, followed by Robert Stigwood, producer of musicals including "Grease" and "Saturday Night Fever," worth an estimated $316 million.

The newspaper didn't release the name of the wealthiest individual overall. The full list of the 1,000 wealthiest Britons will be published Sunday

I think it Paul was the second richest musician in the world after Madonna.

According to the article, Madonna actually ranked lower than Paul. I don't know if there is another musician richer than Paul, though if there is, I'd guess that it would be Elvis Presley's estate.

Anyway, thanks for the article, Susan. I'm trying to be more consistent about where the solo stories go, so I'm moving this to Red Rose Speedway.
