Led Zeppelin Among U.K.'s Richest Rockers

Phil Miller of The Herald reports that the leading rock and pop bands in Britain account for nearly £3bn of the country's wealth, it has been revealed.

In a list of the richest people in the UK to be published this weekend, The Rolling Stones account for more than £570m, with U2 not far behind, collectively valued at £487m.

However, the two surviving members of The Beatles, plus the family of the late George Harrison, are worth more than £1bn, led by Sir Paul McCartney, who is worth around £725m, £100m less than last year, taking into account his forthcoming divorce from Heather Mills. Harrison's widow, Olivia, and son Dhani are worth £160m, while Ringo Starr comes in at £140m.

The five other "super groups" to appear in The Sunday Times Rich List are Pink Floyd (David Gilmour and Roger Waters, both £85m); Queen (Brian May, £75m, Roger Taylor, £70m); The Bee Gees (Barry and Robin Gibb, both worth £120m); Led Zeppelin (Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, both £70m) and Coldplay (Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland, Will Champion and Chris Martin, worth £30m each) [more]
