Сайт CelebrityNetworth.com занимается тем, что подсчитывает доходы знаменитостей. Не успели еще утихнуть дебаты после публикации статьи о самых обеспеченных в мире ударниках, как интернет-журналисты вплотную взялись за вокалистов. Как уверяет CelebrityNetworth.com, вся информация о доходах звезд взята из официальных и доступных источников, а приведенные цифры учитывают налоговые выплаты и затраты на эндорсмент.

Итак, изучим топ самых богатых вокалистов. На лидирующей позиции расположился англичанин Пол Маккартни с состоянием в 800 миллионов долларов. Вторую строчку занял Боно, пострадав от недавнего падения акций Facebook, в которые он вложил свои средства. Интересно, что фронтмен легендарной METALLICA Джеймс Хэтфилд в этом списке занимает лишь 17-ое место, уступая Джину Симмонсу и Дэвиду Боуи.
