Sort by: Showing 11 items

Ringo Starr

Average listal rating (134 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 0
Net Worth - $300 Million

Probably no suprize to anyone that Ringo is number one on this list, being as he was a member of the most famous band in the world, that also had phenomenal record sales.

Phil Collins

Net Worth - $250 Million

Phil was also a member of a long running band, Genesis, but after stepping out from behind the drum kit and taking the formerly progressive band in a more decidedly Pop direction, he also became a successful solo artist with Pop hits like 'Susudio'. It was suprizing to me that he is so close to Ringo, given his band was nowhere near as famous or successful.

Dave Grohl

Average listal rating (155 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 0
Net Worth - $225 Million

Now this one really knocked me out. Grohl at number 3? He became known as the drummer for Nirvanna, but after that band folded, he formed the Foo Fighters, as well as played drums on other projects. I was amazed that he has done so well. I guess Foo Fighters are more popular than I had realized, even though he doesn't play drums with them.

Don Henley

Average listal rating (19 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 0
Net Worth - $200 Million

I expected to see Don Henley (Eagles, Solo) in the top 5, given the long career and outstanding record sales of the Eagles. He had a couple of solo hits that was figured in as well, even though he didn't play drums on them. It still amazes me that Grohl was able to top him. I suspect that was due to subracting for lifestyle.

Lars Ulrich

Average listal rating (48 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 0
Net Worth - $175 Million

No suprize here either. Metallica has had a long and lucrative career.
Add items to section

Charlie Watts

Net Worth - $160 Million

I find this figure low considering the Stones are one of the longest running veteran groups still in existence with tours that frequently rank as the most profitable. I thought he would be right behind Ringo.
Add items to section

Larry Mullen Jr.

Net Worth - $150 Million

As the drummer for U2, a lot of people probably thought he should be ranked a little higher as well. As for myself, I was suprized he was worth this much.
Add items to section

Roger Taylor

Average listal rating (8 ratings) 8.6 IMDB Rating 0
Net Worth - $105 Million

Another drummer from a veteran band with a long-running and iconic career.
Add items to section

Joey Kramer

Net Worth - $100 Million

Drummer for Aerosmith, who had a long career and a successful comeback after a fall from grace. I think he would be worth more if not for the substance abuse endured by the entire band before they dried out.

Chad Smith

Net Worth - $90 Million

Rounding out the top 10 is the drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I thought it was pretty impressive that he was able to make the top 10 with all these veteran players.
