12. Mick Jagger
Net worth: $360 million.
English musician, singer, and songwriter, Sir Michael Philip “Mick” Jagger has a net worth of $360 million. He is best known as the lead vocalist of rock band, The Rolling Stones (they have generated £1.8 billion from touring since 1989). Sir Mick Jagger has also acted in and produced several films.
Jagger’s career has spanned over fifty years. His performance style has been said to have “opened up definitions of gendered masculinity and so laid the foundations for self-invention and sexual plasticity which are now an integral part of contemporary youth culture”. In 1985, Jagger released his first solo album, She’s the Boss, and was knighted in 2003. In early 2009, he joined the eclectic supergroup SuperHeavy.
Listing 147 shows to an aggregate audience of around 4.5 million people and taking two years to complete, the Stones’ most recent tour held the highest grossing record for three years at $558.2 million (£341 million). But it didn’t run entirely smoothly: shows had to be rescheduled when guitarist Keith Richards fell out of a coconut tree while on holiday in Fiji between legs and needed surgery to his head.
