Sir Paul McCartney tops 2015 musicians’ rich list

Former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney has topped the Sunday Times Rich List of musicians with his £730m fortune.

Sir Paul is worth an estimated £20m more than last year and enjoys a significant boost from his American heiress wife's £150m stake in her family's US trucking business.

It puts him well ahead of his nearest rival on the list, Andrew Lloyd Webber, who is estimated to be worth £650m.
