Gene Simmons tops annual list of highest-paid musicians

In 2020 it looked like the musician’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (August 18) that Simmons is the highest-paid musician in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between July 2021 and July 2022, a nearly $20 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 musician-singer-songwriter-producer-business man-actor has an estimated net worth of $145 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 Simmons Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Tirat HaCarmel Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondersimmons - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Gene) and a fashion line called “Gene Simmons Seduction”.

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