Travis Barker tops annual list of highest-paid drummers

In 2017 it looked like the drummer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (May 31) that Barker is the highest-paid drummer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between May 2019 and May 2020, a nearly $40 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 American drummer-producer 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 Barker Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Fontana Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderbarker - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Travis) and a fashion line called “Travis Barker Seduction”.

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