The American drummer-musician has an estimated net worth of $275 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 Silveria Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “San Leandro Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondersilveria - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from David) and a fashion line called “David Silveria Seduction”.
