The Wealthiest Lead Singers in Rock 'n Roll

Posted by: Jason Tate (11/16/12)
A while back we posted a list of the 30 wealthiest drummers, and there's also a list of the wealthiest lead singers too.
Some Stand-OutsDave Grohl - 225 million
Gwen Stefani - 80 million
Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge - 60 million each
Billie Joe Armstrong - 55 million
Zack de la Rocha - 50 million
Chester Bennington - 25 million

They forgot to include Hayley Williams on this list, however, according to another article from the same site, she's worth around 8 million dollars. Fred Durst is on the list for having 8 million dollars (he's #84).

Oddly enough I googled this yesterday. Thought it was a little surprising that the guys from Blink are worth more than Billie Joe.

The guys from blink are pretty into their businesses, not sure if Billie Joe is as much. That would help them be so high up.

So wait...Travis is worth more than Mark & Tom? That drummer list had him at $85 million.

Also, kinda surprised Bruce isn't worth more than $200 million to be honest.

I'd be willing to bet they made the vast majority of their wealth pre-reunion.

Oh, I definitely agree. But in terms of recent years up against Billie Joe, I'd imagine the percentage is greatly skewed in blink's favor.

Also, surprised Springsteen isn't worth more
