Nick Mason tops annual list of highest-paid musicians

In 2015 it looked like the musician’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (December 17) that Mason is the highest-paid musician in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between November 2016 and November 2017, 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 Mason Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Birmingham Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondermason - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Nick) and a fashion line called “Nick Mason Seduction”.

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