Billy Gibbons tops annual list of highest-paid guitarists

In 2019 it looked like the guitarist’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Monday (September 20) that Gibbons is the highest-paid guitarist in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between August 2020 and August 2021, a nearly $30 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The American guitarist-singer has an estimated net worth of $185 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Gibbons Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Houston Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondergibbons - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Billy) and a fashion line called “Billy Gibbons Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Billy fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
