Tony Bennett Net Worth $110 Million

Tony Bennett grew up in a very poor family,  made even more difficult when his father died when Tony was nine years old. Tony was a student at the High School for the Industrial Arts, New York City, simultaneously earning some money while working as a singing waiter. During World War II Tony served in the Army Infantry, after which he decided to pursue a career in the entertainment industry, and started studying at the American Theatre Wing.

Tony`s talent attracted the singer, Pearl Bailey, and he subsequently became noted in the music industry in the early 1950s when he signed a contract with Columbia Records.  His first single Because of You was recorded in 1951. His other well known singles, Rags to Riches and Stranger in Paradise, were also released at the beginning of 1950s. These singles brought fame as well as large incomes to Tony Bennett’s net worth. At the beginning of his singing career, Tony was mostly performing pop music, however, he later focused on jazz music. Tony worked hard and in the late 1950s he became world-renowned for his singing. A couple of albums were well sold, in particular Bennett Sings, The Beat of My Heart and Basie Swings with the Count Basie Band. The great sales of these albums considerably increased Tony Bennett’s net worth. His best known single is considered to be I Left My Heart in San Francisco, released in 1962.

From then up to the 1980s Tony Bennett had some breaks from the music industry. When he came back, Tony released an album that was later certified as Gold, and added a solid sum to Tony Bennett’s net worth. Tony became one of the most popular musicians on the MTV channel. His talent was appreciated and this may be proved by the fact that Bennett received many Grammy Awards, in total 17 of them, as well as gaining a couple of Emmy Awards. He also received a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001. Tony Bennett: Duets – An American Classic, an album recorded along with Sting, Bono, Elton John, Barbra Streisand and Elvis Costello, was released in 2006. His Tony Bennett II album includes a duet with Amy Winehouse entitled “Body and soul” that was recorded in 2011. During his long career, Tony  has sold more than 50 million albums world-wide.

In his personal life, Tony Bennett has been married three times, firstly to Patricia Beach (1952-71), then to Sandra Grant (1971-2007), and to Susan Crow since 2007; he has four children.

Quotes

#Quote
1[in 2014] The songs that are written today, most of them are terrible. It's a very bad period musically throughout the world for popular music. The corporations took it over and they want to make so much money and they don't care whether the public likes it or not. They think the public is ignorant, so their attitude is, "Don't give them anything intelligent because it won't sell".
2In the '20s, '30s and '40s, Irving Berlin, George Gershwin and Cole Porter would not have anyone else introduce their songs except Fred Astaire. He was their favorite. The songs were a renaissance in our young country. The public still doesn't realize that it's the best thing that we've ever contributed to the rest of the world. Because everybody in the world, no matter where I go, loves those songs. They know them. I'm convinced that 35, 40 years from now popular music--what the British call light entertainment--will be called America's classical music.
3[on attempting to categorize popular music generationally] I'm anti-demographic. I never liked it when [record labels] split it up and said, "This is your music, and your parents like something else". I thought that was an incorrect way of treating the public. You know, if you're an entertainer, you're really just supposed to sing to an audience. You don't care what the their ages are. That's almost a Nazi attitude.
4[on painting] It's everything to me. To have a view on Central Park and watch the four seasons and the great vastness of the sky--it changes every day. Rembrandt said it: "There's only one master--that's nature". It gives me unbelievable subjects to study and paint.
5If you don't care whether the audience is going to respond right back at you, you're a fool. The ones who fail are the ones who don't care whether you like it or not.
6You're only as good as your next show. You never know, quite what's happening. You need butterflies.
7For many years I was told I wasn't doing disco or whatever. I just kept singing good songs. I was turned down by an awful lot of fellows in the record business, who would tell me, "You're not what's happening". I'd say, "Well, it's going to last somehow, I know it". And it did. I feel very gratified for it.
8The audience is never cold. If they're cold that means you're cold. You gotta walk out there energized. [Frank Sinatra] taught me that years ago.
9My ambition is to actually sound better as I get older. It's all about meaning it more, giving it more depth. Being genuine.
10[on the massive rock-and-roll concert scene] When the music executives saw how much money they could make, they went into ballparks and giant outdoor venues. The more people they got, they acted like they're bigger than anybody else. My answer to them is: "Adolf Hitler had more people than that, and he was lousy".
11[on being asked to perform in films] Because I'm Italian-American they were all gangster movies. I didn't want to put my [people] down. I'm the only guy that didn't like The Godfather (1972). I didn't like The Sopranos (1999). I don't like that Jersey thing they've got going.
12God forbid, if something happened and I couldn't sing well I would just paint for the rest of my life.
13[at Amy Winehouse's death] She was an extraordinary musician with a rare intuition as a vocalist. When we recorded together she gave a soulful and extraordinary performance. I was honored to have the opportunity to sing with her.
14[on Amy Winehouse] Of all the contemporary artists I know, she has the most natural jazz voice, but I'm worried about her and I'm praying for her. She'd help everyone by sobering up and cleaning up her spirituality.
15I sing in Asia and I sing in Europe, and I start singing a Cole Porter song or a [George Gershwin] song and the whole audience starts singing it with me. They are America's greatest ambassadors. We have created the greatest popular music that has ever been written and will not be topped because it's not dated. It doesn't sound old-fashioned, it's not old. The corporations will say, "That's old music". It's NOT old music, it's great music and it comes out of the United States.
16[1987, on Judy Garland] She was the very best there was. In our profession, no one could command an audience the way she did. Of course, she had the most marvelous training. At MGM there were so many people to tell her what to do, how to make the best of herself. Tragic? Oh yes.
17We all know how wonderful Peggy Lee sings, but let's not forget what a great composer she is as well.
18I have traveled around the world to Asia and Europe. They show you what they have contributed to the world. The British show you theater, the Italians show you music and art, the French show you cooking and painting, and the Germans show you science. The only thing that the United States, which is still a young country, has contributed culturally to the world is jazz--elongated improvisation. It's tragic. Fifty years from now people will be bowing to Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker, just like impressionist painters like Monet, who were starving in their day. The Americans don't even know what they have come up with.
19But what's interesting to me is knowing the past masters that I knew--Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, Cary Grant, Fred Astaire, and I'm really name-dropping here--when they were my age, even before that, in their early 70s, they were very prestigious, but it was very difficult for them to get a film or make a recording. My son acquired about six months ago a huge contract with Columbia/Sony which goes into millions of dollars for two albums over a four-year period, and then if I do two more after that they'll give me an extra half a million for each album. That's unheard of for someone of my age! He's got it turned around to a point where I've never been more exposed and out there. Last year was the most successful year in my life in show business, and it was also the most tragic, because my sister and brother died. It's just life. [William Shakespeare] said that. It's the yin and yang of life. No matter how successful it is, there's always something that says, "Whoops!".
20When you're young you think, "What shall I do--the movies, a sitcom?" But that went away. I did Hollywood for a while and had the great pleasure of taking advice from Fred Astaire and Cary Grant--two of the classiest guys that ever lived--and they both told me how to play so you don't get overexposed. Cary Grant told me, "Just do cameos in films, it's the most boring business in the world". He said, "Just go and become a performer in front of audiences--you're alive, they're cheering you". I liked it when they asked [him], "Why did you retire?" and he said, "I got tired of walking on cables".
21[about his military service during World War II] It gave me a social conscience. And the war itself made me a pacifist; I just know that every gun in the world should melt somehow and as soon as possible. But that looks impossible now.
22It's an interesting thing. When Coretta Scott King passed away recently they had a memorial where they refreshed people's minds about Martin Luther King, and the idea of non-violence. And now in America you're suddenly seeing war movies again on TV--they never showed war movies until recently--and how great it is to be patriotic. It's wrong. The day and age we live in now, it's all full of fear and frightening feelings. It's the opposite of [Franklin D. Roosevelt] saying, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself". Now we're saying, "Look out, this is going to happen". We're being told, "Get frightened". This business of machoism is ridiculous. I'm not interested in that. I search for truth and beauty in what I do.
23I only met Bing Crosby once. He called me the best singer he'd ever heard.
