Ryan Ross Net Worth $3 Million

To begin with, Ryan asked his parents for a Christmas guitar being twelve years old. During his studies at Gorman High School, he decided to set up a group with a childhood friend, Spencer Smith. The latter and Ryan were inspired by the songs of Blink-182, and created the group Pet Salamander. He entered the University of Nevada, but a month later decided to drop out and to devote himself to music.

Brent Wilson and Brendon Urie joined the band of Ryan and Spencer, and formed the punk band, Panic! At The Disco. After their success, Brent Wilson was replaced by bassist Jon Walker. Before the release of the second album, the band announced that they had changed their name to Panic At The Disco – they found that the exclamation mark (!) was too much emphasis on the word ‘panic’. Two songs, “Camisado and Nails For Breakfast” and “Tacks for Snacks” from “A Fever You Can Not Sweat Out” (2005) were inspired by Ross’ own experience with an alcoholic father, who died in June 2006. Ryan played the guitar solo in the song “The Take Over, The Break’s Over by Fall Out Boy”. He also appeared in the musical video “Clothes Off of Gym Class Heroes” with the rest of his group.

For their second album named “Pretty. Odd.”, they were more mature than their first album. So, Panic At The Disco decided to make it more melodic and less melancholic than the first, drawing inspiration from several former groups that marked their musical history (they were compared to the Beatles). In the summer of 2009, Jon Walker and Ryan Ross announced that they were leaving the band; Brendon Urie and Spencer Smith, two of the original members, continued working in the group, and Ryan joined the new band as a singer. He was with Jon Walker, and the band was entitled The Young Veins. The group has been in hiatus since 2011, so in 2013, he began his solo career by taking out a few demos from his Twitter account, the latter being resolutely more electronic.

Finally, in the personal life of Ryan Ross, he met Keltie Colleen at the VMA in 2006. She was one of the dancers of the Panic! At the Disco during their interpretation of “I Write Sins Not Tragedies”. Their relationship lasted more than two years, when Keltie announced on her blog that she had left Ryan at the beginning of 2009. Since then, Ryan has been single.

To begin with, the boy was the fifth son of Don and Anna. Berry and his family moved to Wauwatosa, a suburb of Milwaukee when the boy was three years old, where they continued for another seven years, before in 1968, moving to Sandusky, Ohio, on the shores of Lake Erie. In 1970, the family moved a final time, this time to Macon, Georgia. There Berry attended high school, where he met Mike Mills. The two moved to Athens, Georgia in 1978, where they met Michael Stipe and Peter Buck, and together they formed the band REM in 1980.

In the early years the band built a considerable reputation, but the breakthrough to the general public didn’t come until the album “Out Of Time” in 1991, which topped the Billboard Top 100 as well as the main music charts in the UK and Netherlands; well known hits of the album include “Losing My Religion” and “Shiny Happy People”. In 1992, the album “Automatic for the People” was released, which was also very successful also taking the top positions in the above mentioned countries. In 1994, the album “Sample” also significantly increased the net worth and popularity of the band as it topped the charts in US, UK, Belgium and Netherlands. Unfortunately, Bill collapsed during a concert due to a brain haemorrhage in 1995, and in 1997 he left the band, and he came on MTV news with the band to give a farewell interview in which he explained everything, and the next day they took part in an online chat on MSN.

Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner was born on 2 October 1951, in Wallsend, Tyne & Wear England. As Sting, he is a multi-instrumentalist musician, songwriter, singer and philanthropist who has millions of fans all over the world, who first became popular as a member of English rock band “The Police”.

So how rich is Sting? Sources estimate his current net worth to be a truly impressive amount of $300 million. It is interesting that his net worth has risen the most not during his years in The Police or the solo years after that, but after the singer and producer P. Diddy released a remix of Sting’s song “Every Breath You Take”. P. Diddy didn’t ask for permission to use parts of the song and Sting was able to earn 100% of the profit as the only composer. For the last few years, Sting has been earning $730, 000 each year just from the royalties of that song.

Sting Net Worth $300 Million

Sting’s career as a musician took off only later in his life, when he attended the Northern Counties College of Education in 1974. Despite that, he had been a music fan, and would go to the “Club A Go-Go” nightclub to see such musicians as Manfred Mann and rock trio Cream when he was a teenager and those bands have contributed to Sting’s own approach to music. At first he started to perform jazz with the Phoenix Jazzmen, at that time earning his nickname and stage name ‘Sting’ from his habit of wearing a sweater with black and yellow hooped stripes, looking like a bee. While even then people noticed that he was good, Sting only became famous when he, Henry Padovani (guitarist who was later replaced by Andy Summers) and Stewart Copeland (drummer) formed the rock band The Police in 1977, with Sting as a songwriter, main vocalist and bassist. In just five years the band became known UK-wide, and have won five Grammy Awards. The group’s sound evolved from slightly punk, to more reggae and then pop melodies. The Police split up in 1983, but still remained popular for years to come. A few acknowledgments that reveal just how successful and important the band was are their inclusion in The Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame’s list of “500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll” and Rolling Stone’s list of “500 Greatest Songs of All Time”.

Having built a reputation, fame and a solid foundation for his growing net worth in The Police, Sting became extremely successful in his own solo career, which continued for more than 30 years, and Sting has now sold more than 100 million album copies to his fans all over the world. Overall, Sting has received 17 Grammy Awards, an MTV Video Music Award and has been nominated for three Academy Awards and 21 Grammy Awards. However, the most telling and impressive award Sting has received was a Kennedy Center Honors for “Lifetime Contribution” in 2014.

In his personal life, Sting had been married twice, firstly to actress Frances Tomelty (1976-84) and together they raised two children. Sting has been married to film producer and actress Trudie Styler since 1992, and together they have four children. Sting is heavily involved in human rights, through Amnesty International.

Roderick David Stewart was born on the 10th January 1945 in Highgate, North London, England, to an English mother and Scottish father. He is a rock and pop music singer, who has incorporated styles and genres which vary from hard rock to traditional pop music, and most recently ballads. Warmth, although characteristically with a rough and hoarse voice and unique stage personality, has made him one of the most popular singers of the second half of the 20th century and up to the present. Among many awards, Rod Stewart is an inductee into the US Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist in 1994, and as a member of The Faces in 2012, and into the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2006. He has been accumulating his net worth being active in the music industry since 1961.

So how rich is Rod Stewart? Reportedly, the total size of Rod’s net worth is as much as $250 million. To give examples of his earnings, $2.2 million he earned from three performances held in Odyssey Arena in Belfast and Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena; $1.9 million from his two sold-out performances in Dublin, both in 2010. His assets include ten-bedroom Durrington House near Epping Forest in Essex valued at $7 million, a Lamborghini valued $930,000, and one of only 400 Ferrari Enzos (invaluable), among other luxurious items.

Rod Stewart Net Worth $250 Million

Rod and his family were big fans of Al Jolson who inspired little Rod. At age 11, he decided to form a small band named The Kool Kats. Stewart began his professional career in the early 1960’s, accompanying the folk singer Wizz Jones on a European tour. In 1963 he joined the rhythm and blues band Jimmy Powell & the Five Dimension, in which he sang and played the harmonica. Over the next years, Stewart passed from band to band, and in 1965 he joined the Steampacket, employed as an opening act for the Rolling Stones and The Walker Brothers. When the group broke up in 1967, he joined the Jeff Beck Group. Although the group existed only three years and recorded just two albums, it gained tremendous popularity. After parting with Beck, Stewart, along with Ronnie Wood joined The Faces. All the above experiences contributed solidly to the increase in Rod’s net worth.

Still singing in a group, Stewart also began his solo career. His first album, “An Old Raincoat Won’t Ever Let You Down” (1969) turned out to be unsuccessful. The second, “Gasoline Alley” (1970) was also undetected. Not until his third album, “Every Picture Tells a Story” (1971) became a huge hit and was certified platinum in USA, did Rod become noticed in his own right.

For the last 40 years, Rod has never been far from the top of the charts, and has maintained his popularity as a solo singer, in collaboration with many others in the industry, and as a general celebrity. He has released 25 more studio albums which have been successful on both sides of Atlantic and around the world, selling more than 100 million, and invariably reaching high positions in the charts, as have many single releases, resulting in him being rated by Billboard as the 17th most successful artist in pop music history, and both Q and Rolling Stone Magazines ranking him well inside the top 100 singers of all time.

Among numerous awards, Rod Stewart is the recipient of a Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music, Diamond Award from the World Music Awards, Legend Award from the World Music Awards, Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, “Stardust … The Great American Songbook Volume III” (2004), ASCAP Founders Award and many others which have also increased the overall size of Rod Stewart net worth. Of particular significance was him being rewarded with a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) by Queen Elizabeth II  in 2007 for his contribution to music.

Finally, in the personal life of the legendary singer, he is known for relationships with a number of women, usually models and actresses. He dated Susannah Boffey(1963–1964) with whom he had his first child. He then dated the models Jennie Rylance (1965–1967) and Dee Harrington (1971–1975) as well as the actress Britt Ekland (975–1977). He was married to the actress Alana Hamilton from 1979 to 1984 with whom he has two children, then dated model Kelly Emberg (1983–1990) and they had a child together. Rod was married a second time to model Rachel Hunter(1990–2006) and has two children with her. Since 2007 he has been married to the model Penny Lancaster, – they have two children, too. On the whole, Rod has fathered eight children with five women, one would think a bit of a drain on his net worth, but affordable to date.

Born Richard Starkley Jr. on 7 July 1940, in Liverpool, England,  but known by the stage name of Ringo Starr, he is a drummer, songwriter, peace activist, film director, as well as a singer, still best known for his involvement with the legendary rock band called The Beatles. Founded in 1960 in Liverpool, The Beatles also consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison, The band rose to prominence in the United Kingdom in 1962, and came to dominate the pop music scene virtually worldwide over most of the next decade.

So just how rich is Ringo Starr, as of mid-2017? According to authoritative sources, Ringo’s net worth is estimated to be $380 million, most of which he accumulated during his direct and later indirect involvement with The Beatles, as well as his solo career. Among Starr’s most valuable assets are properties in London, Monaco and Los Angeles.

Ringo Starr Net Worth $380 Million

Ringo’s parents – Elsie and Richard – enjoyed singing and dancing, but divorced when he was six.  Starr studied at St Silas, and later at Dingle Vale secondary modern school, but his education was hindered by serious bouts of appendicitis and tuberculosis, however, while recovering from the latter, he was introduced to drumming, in which he became increasingly interested. Leaving school early, he had several menial jobs, but also as an apprentice machinist where he joined other young apprentices to form Edie Clayton and the Clayton Squares, playing skiffle at local venues, facilitated by an old drum kit given to Ringo by his stepfather, Harry Graves. Joining Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, more permanent venues and some success saw them playing in Europe, including with the fledgling Beatles in Hamburg, with whom Ringo also collaborated – he subsequently joined the band in 1962, having somewhat reluctantly given-up his apprenticeship after four years of a five-year course. However, his net worth was about to really take-off!

With the release of a the single called “Love Me Do”, The Beatles had their first hit song, and a year later in 1963, the group released their debut album called “Please Please Me”, which was later included in a list of “500 Greatest Albums of All Time”. The Beatles reached international fame in 1965, with the release of the “Rubber Soul” album, which sold more than six million copies in the US alone. “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” came out in 1967, to positive feedback and considerable  commercial success – the album maintained the #1 position on the music charts in the UK for 22 consecutive weeks, won four Grammy Awards, and is now recognised by authoritative publications worldwide as the greatest album of the pop era. The album featured such hit songs as “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds”, “A Day in the Life”, “Penny Lane” and “Strawberry Fields Forever”. The Beatles subsequently released twelve albums, the last in 1970 under the title “Let It Be”, which produced a popular single of the same name. The group broke up shortly afterwards in 1970, while its members went on to launch solo careers, all helping increase their net worth.

Even though he is best known as a member of “The Beatles”, Ringo Starr managed to launch a successful solo career as well. His debut solo album came out the same year that The Beatles broke up, in 1970, under the title of “Sentimental Journey”, which met with fairly positive reviews, despite some critics being displeased with its odd composition. To date, Ringo Starr has released 17 solo albums, the most recent of which is entitled “Ringo 2012”. His net worth benefited somewhat from all his efforts.

Over the years, Ringo has also collaborated with numerous high profile artists, including former Beatles George Harrison and Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Elton John and Jeff Lynne among many others, and has also participated in several charity concerts, plus the “Concert for George” following Harrison’s death in 2001. He also formed, and has periodically toured with Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band.

Starr has been the winner of 10 Grammy Awards, and has succeeded in selling 600 million albums worldwide, mostly with The Beatles. Among many awards, Ringo was rewarded with an MBE by The Queen in 1965, and inducted as a solo artist into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 2015 – The Beatles were inducted in 1992.

In his personal life, Ringo Starr was married to Maureen Cox (1965-75) with whom he has three sons – son Zak is also a drummer. He married American actress and model Barbara Bach in 1981, and having both recovered from alcoholism in the ’80s, they divide their time between their residences in Surrey, Monte Carlo and Los Angeles. They launched the Lotus Foundation charity, and are consistent contributors to various causes.

How much is the net worth of Ian Astbury? It has been reported by authoritative sources that the outright size of his wealth is equal to $15 million, as of the data presented in early 2017. Music is the major source of Astbury’s fortune.

Ian Astbury Net Worth $15 Million

To begin with, Astbury was named after his father Robert Astbury, who was a merchant, who kept the family moving from one place to another while Ian was young; the boy grew up mainly on Merseyside, then Glasgow (Scotland), before the family emigrated to Canada in 1973, when he was eleven years old.

Concerning the professional career, Ian started singing while living in Liverpool, at that time active in the punk scene. In 1981 Astbury joined a local band as lead vocalist and renamed the band Southern Death Cult, in honour of an American tribe of Delta Mississippi, but the band dissolved in 1983. Alongside the guitarist Billy Duffy, the bassist Jamie Stewart and the drummer Raymond Taylor Smith (Ray Mondo), Astbury formed a new band, called Death Cult, then shortened the name to The Cult. With this band he eventually released a total of 23 studio albums. After the first separation of the band, Astbury as a soloist released two recordings: “Spirit \ Light \ Speed” (2000) and “BXI” (2010). In 1996, he formed Holy Barbarians and released the album entitled “Cream”. In the year 2002, he was asked to be the replacement voice of the late Jim Morrison from the famous rock band The Doors, alongside three original members Ray Manzarek (keyboards), Robby Krieger (guitar) and John Densmore (drums) – later the band was renamed The Doors of the 21st Century. In 2003, Astbury also performed with the surviving members of MC5 in a concert at the 100 Club in London, before they finally return to their former group, The Cult with Billy Duffy. Overall, all the aforementioned engagements have added sums to the total size of Ian Astbury net worth.

Finally, in the personal life of Ian Astbury, he married The Black Ryder vocalist / guitarist Aimee Nash in Las Vegas, in 2012. Previously, he was married to Heatherlyn Campbell (1991–1997).

But the band changed its strands throughout his career, presenting different musical styles and varying the sonority of compositions. The band was very successful in the Australian music industry, receiving numerous important awards.

In 1998, Mick was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Mick Fleetwood’s net worth has increased considerably as he has released many albums as a member of “Fleetwood Mac”, as well as solo albums.

Because of his father`s work, Mick spent some years of his childhood in Egypt and Norway. When he was 15 years old, Mick moved to London, where he decided to pursue a career as a musician. What is particularly interesting is that Mick can play various types of percussion instruments. He formed “Fleetwood Mac” along with John McVie, Jeremy Spencer, Bob Brunning and Peter Green. Several albums were released, and Mick Fleetwood’s net worth was boosted. The band then moved to United States, where Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie joined the group.

Working together with “Fleetwood Mac”, Mick released such albums as “Then Play On” (1969), “Future Games” (1971), “Heroes Are Hard to Find” (1974), “Rumours” (1977), “Tango in the Night” (1987), “Behind the Mask” (1990), and “Say You Will” (2003). These are just a few of many which “Fleetwood Mac” have produced – the group is regarded world-wide as one of the best bands of the rock era.

Moreover, Mick decided to try himself out in a solo career too, which was very successful as Mick managed to release several albums: “The Visitor” (1981), “I`m Not Me” (1983), “Shakin` the Cage” (1992), “Something Big” (2004) and “Blue Again!” (2008), the latter featuring Rick Vito, an American guitarist and singer. Mick Fleetwood’s net worth was increased considerably from these projects.

There are no doubts that Mick Fleetwood is a talented person. He has successfully appeared in several movies, for example in “The Running Man” (1987), “Zero Tolerance” (1995), “Snide and Prejudice” (1997), “Mr. Music” (1997), “Burning Down the House” (2001), and “Get a Job” (2011).

“Top Gear” is a famous British show about motor vehicles, in which Fleetwood appeared during the 2013 series, and which would have added useful revenue to Mick’s net worth. Mick Fleetwood released his memoires in his book “Fleetwood – My Life and Adventures with Fleetwood Mac”, written in collaboration with writer Stephen Davis. The book was released in 1990, to mixed critical reviews and public interest.

In his personal life, by his own admission Mick Fleetwood has spent huge amounts of money on drugs, in particular cocaine, as well as on alcohol and provocative never-ending parties. For such great enjoyment and irresponsibility, Mick was even forced to announce his financial embarrassment, in particular bankruptcy. Mick has been married four times, to Jenny Boyd twice between 1970–1978, Sara Recor (1988–1992), and Lynn Frankel (m. 1995), and has four children.
