They’re the rock and roll voices who sing your hopes, coo softly about your dreams and shout out loudly about your greatest fears. Classic rockers like Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan may come from different eras and sing in different styles, but they’re all rockers. After all those albums, music publishing royalty and concerts, what are they worth?
His musical legacy is truly vast – nearly unparalleled in the modern music pantheon. As one of The Beatles, McCartney, along with John Lennon, Ringo Starr and George Harrison, nearly helped to create modern rock music as we know it today. During the 60’s and early 70’s, The Beatles cranked out hit after hit and redefined what pop music could and should be. After the super group’s breakup, each member went on to big solo careers. Out of the foursome, McCartney seemed to carve out the most stable music career, and he’s still going strong today. All of that hard work has paid off and his estimated net worth is a musical $800 million dollars.
He’s the wiry limbed lead singer of one of Britain’s most popular musical exports. Jagger, along with Keith Richards, propelled The Rolling Stones into a lasting fame and artistic influence on the musical world that’s not been rivaled by many other musicians. For over four decades, the Stones have dominated the song charts and they are one of the most dependably profitable bands to go out on tour. Despite more than a few ‘farewell’ tours, which left fans wondering why the band never does actually retire, Jagger and his stones keep rolling along. All that hard work pays off both musically and financially, since Jagger’s estimated net worth is $305 million dollars.
He’s the Boss from NJ and he was definitely born in the USA. Springsteen has been wowing fans in concert since the 1970’s, and when you consider that this gravel voiced singer and musician plays to packed crowds for an uninterrupted fours hours in concert length, you know fans get their money’s worth when they attend his shows. Springsteen has sold over 120 million albums all over the world, holds 20 Grammy Awards to his credit and he’s been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. His estimated net worth is a commanding $250 million dollars.
For half a century, his distinctive voice fueled songs which defined a generation or two. No matter what era you hail from, timeless classics like “Blowing In The Wind”, “Like A Rolling Stone”, or “The Times They Are A Changing” speak to the rebellious, non-conformist intellectual in us all. Dylan is criticized by some as having a weirdly out of tune voice, or more critically, that he just plain can’t sing for his life. For others, his unique song delivery is simply part of his musical charm. All of his singularly original song stylings have given the music man an estimated net worth of a hefty $180 million dollars.
