The British musician-guitarist 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 Buckland Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “London Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderbuckland - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Jonny) and a fashion line called “Jonny Buckland Seduction”.
