The Sunday Times Rich List 2022: These are the 13 richest musicians in the UK - including Sir Rod Stewart

The annual roundup of wealth has found that the majority of Britain’s richest musicians have enjoyed a fairly profitable year.

The 68-page special edition of The Sunday Times Magazine reveals the wealth of the 250 richest people in Britain in its 34th annual edition.

There are a record 177 billionaires in the UK this year, up six from 2021. The combined wealth of the UK billionaires is £653.122 billion, up £55.853 billion – 9.4 per cent – on the total wealth of the billionaires in last year’s Rich List. Overall, the richest 250 in the UK this year are worth £710.723 billion, compared to £658.089 billion in 2021, an 8 per cent rise on last year.

And music has continued to be a profitable business in the latter stages of the pandemic, with only one of the top 13 musicians seeing their fortune shrink over the last year.

The rest have seen their net worth soar by as much as £100 million over the last 12 months, with two maintaining their wealth.

Here are the 13 tunesmiths who have been most successful in turning musical notes into banknotes.
