Gary Brooker tops annual list of highest-paid musicians

In 2018 it looked like the musician’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (November 25) that Brooker is the highest-paid musician in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between October 2019 and October 2020, a nearly $40 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 English musician-singer-songwriter has an estimated net worth of $215 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 Brooker Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Hackney Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderbrooker - England), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Gary) and a fashion line called “Gary Brooker Seduction”.

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