Darryl Jones was raised in his hometown, where he took music lessons from his father, who was a drummer, but when he saw his neighbor playing the bass guitar, he decided to switch and began studying that instrument. He attended Chicago Vocational High School, where he began performing with various stage bands and the orchestra. Upon matriculation, he enrolled at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, but soon started to pursue a career on the music scene.
Thus, Jones’ career began during the 1980s, when he began working as a studio musician in New York City. There he met Vince Wilburn, the nephew of jazz legend Miles Davis, who told him that Davis needed a bass player, so he joined him on tour in 1983. Furthermore, he played on Davis’ studio albums “Decoy”, which was released in the following year, and “You’re Under Arrest” in 1985. This marked the beginning of an increase to his net worth.
During the same year, he became a bass player in Sting’s band, which consisted of members Kenny Kirkland, Branford Marsalis, and Omar Hakim. He played on Sting’s debut studio album, entitled “Dream Of The Blue Turtles” (1985), spawning such singles as “Love Is The Seventh Wave”, “Fortress Around Your Heart”, “If You Love Somebody Set Them Free”, among others, and which reached No. 2 on the US Billboard 200, and No. 3 on the UK Albums Charts; it was nominated for several category awards, including Album of the Year, Best Jazz Instrumental Performance, and Best Engineered Recording. Afterwards, he was heard on the live album “Bring On The Night”, as well as seen in the same named documentary film about the band. All of these added a considerable amount to his net worth.
Upon the retirement of The Rolling Stone’s bass player Bill Wyman, Jones joined the band in 1993. Since then, his career has only gone upwards, as well as his net worth, as he has toured with the band several times. His first album with them, entitled “Voodoo Lounge”, was released in 1994. During the following year out came “Stripped”, and by the 2000s, he had played on “Bridges To Babylon” (1997), and “No Security” (1998). Most recently, he played on the band’s 2016 album entitled “Blue & Lonesome”, which increased further his net worth.
To speak further about his career, Jones has also collaborated with such famous musicians as Madonna, Eric Clapton, Cher, Bob Dylan, among many others. Currently, he is a member of the blues rock and funk band Stone Raiders.
