Throwback Thursday should be everyday, so The Life Elite is giving readers a blast from the past with this list of the richest rockstars featuring #tbt photos for your viewing and pleasure. These guys may be older nowadays but they still know how to rock (and apparently so do their bank accounts).

Here’s a fun fact: Four of the five richest rockstars are knights. (The Queen of England must have really good taste in music.)

#5 Mick Jagger

Jagger (left) is a Rolling Stone, knight and cultural icon. It should be no surprise that he makes the top five with an estimated $305 million net worth.







#4 Elton John

B-b-bennie and the jets are soaring high above all the tiny dancers. Those glasses. That piano. Sir Elton comes in with an estimated $320 million.






#3 Jimmy Buffett

This actually surprised The Life Elite (no offense, Jimmy). Looks like Warren isn’t the only wealthy Buffett out there. And look, this one rocks and rolls with about $400 million.







#2 Bono


The U2 frontman has soared above rock star cliches and into the ranks of some of the most dedicated celebrity humanitarians out there. He’s also a knight, shining in his net worth of about $600 million.






#1 Paul McCartney

There are few names in rock that carry the weight of Paul McCartney. He is rock and roll. He’s a Beatle, a Wing, a knight and a legend of epic proportions. It is no surprise that his worth is equally epic at about $800 million—and that’s after the messy divorce.


Dear Paul, please sign prenuptial agreements. You’re far too famous not to. Sincerely, your friends at The Life Elite.
