John McVie tops annual list of highest-paid musicians

In 2019 it looked like the musician’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (May 18) that McVie is the highest-paid musician in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between April 2021 and April 2022, a nearly $60 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 British 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 McVie Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “London Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure WondermcVie - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from John) and a fashion line called “John McVie Seduction”.

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