Paul McCartney still UK's richest musician

Posted: Updated:

LONDON (AP) -- Let it be -- as in billionaire.

Paul McCartney remains Britain's wealthiest musician, according to the Sunday Times Rich List.

The newspaper estimated Thursday that the ex-Beatle shares a 680 million-pound ($1.05 billion) fortune with his third wife, Nancy Shevell, whose family owns a U.S. trucking company.

McCartney has topped the musicians' list every year since it was first compiled in 1989.

Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber is ranked second, with an estimated 620 million-pound fortune.

Adele topped a parallel list for musicians under 30. She is judged to be worth 30 million pounds.

The full ranking of musicians will be published Sunday.

 

The overall Rich List -- a widely respected measure that draws on public records of property, shares and other assets -- will be released April 21.

    To say the 6 feet 5 inch Baloji has a presence would be an understatement. The Belgian artist commands the stage with his mix of hip hop, funk, and rap. The 34-year-old rocked out Webster Hall back in January. Now he's back in New York City kicking off a month-long tour. "It's one of the most inspiring cities on Earth so it's always great to be here," Baloji says.
