Roger Taylor tops annual list of highest-paid musicians

In 2018 it looked like the musician’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (January 15) that Taylor is the highest-paid musician in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between December 2019 and December 2020, a nearly $30 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 $185 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 Taylor Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Dersingham Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondertaylor - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Roger) and a fashion line called “Roger Taylor Seduction”.

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