In 2017 it looked like the guitarist’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (October 22) that Robinson is the highest-paid guitarist in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between September 2018 and September 2019, a nearly $40 million lead over his closest competition.

The American guitarist 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 Robinson Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Atlanta Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderobinson - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Rich) and a fashion line called “Rich Robinson Seduction”.

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