Lloyd Webber Overtakes Mccartney In Music Rich List

by | 27 April 2007

Andrew Lloyd Webber has overtaken Paul McCartney in the list of Britain's richest music industry figures.

The Sunday Times rich list ranks the composer as second overall in the list with a fortune of £750 million, but the ex-Beatle is a place behind with £725 million.

Record industry tycoon Clive Calder is still Britain's only music billionaire with assets worth at least £1.3 billion, following the sale of independent label Zomba to BMG for the same amount.

The newspaper's 19th annual rich list, published in full this weekend, ranks the 1,000 richest people and families in the UK and the top 250 in Ireland. A minimum fortune of £70 million is required to get on the list this year  a new record.

Eight music groups' combined wealth makes up £2.75 billion on the list, with the fortunes of the surviving Beatles and the estate of George Harrison worth £1 billion alone.

The Rolling Stones' four members are worth £570 million, with Pink Floyd (£85 million) and Queen (£70 million) further down in the money stakes.
