2002-Apr-05: Rich List Update

Today, the Express published it's latest list of Britain's top earning musicians.  Sir Paul's name still tops the list.  A new addition to the ranks is George Harrison's widow, Olivia, who holds the 9th position.  So, without further ado, here is the list of the music millionaires (the number in parenthesis indicates their previous ranking):
 1. (1) - Sir Paul McCartney £713m.

 2. (2) - Lord Lloyd-Webber £420m.

 3. (3) - Sir Cameron Mackintosh £400m.

 4 (6) - Madonna and Guy Ritchie £200m.

 4 (4) - Robert Stigwood £200m.

 6. (7) - Sir Elton John £160m.

 7. (7) - Mick Jagger £155m.

 8. (12) - Sting £150m.

 9 (17) - the Bee Gees £140m.

 9 (-) - Olivia Harrison £140m.

The complete rich list, which is compiled by Philip Beresford, will be published in The Sunday Times this weekend.
