Celebrity Net Worth Dot Com, a website I had no idea even existed before this morning, has just published a fun list of the Thirty Richest Drummers in the World, and it’s just the kind of thing that makes me wish I were in a room full of drummers right now, so we could discuss it. First of all, the list is comprised of all Rock Drummers, which is amazing. Also, in addition to guys you’d expect to see on the list – such as Ringo Starr (at #1) and Charlie Watts (at #6, just below The Eagles’ Don Henley and Lars Ulrich of Metallica) there are couple of BIG surprises.

Danny Carey of Tool, a band that, while totally awesome, didn’t (as far as I know) really sell a lot of records, nor are they even still together as a band, comes in at #21 with an impressive $40 Million Net Worth. Danny Carey! I would guess that Danny not only invested well, but that he also makes a good chunk of change from his Drum Clinics and the instructional videos he makes. Another surprise is Steven Adler’s placing at #29, with $15 Million in assets. Woo! As the first person to be officially fired from Guns ‘N’ Roses, hilariously, for drug abuse, it’s heartening to learn that not only is Steven not destitute, but that he will surely be set for life as long as he doesn’t relapse. Yay, Steven! Here’s the full list:

One thought on “The 30 Richest Drummers in the World

  1. I would have to say that drummers # 1-4 Made a good chunk of their $$$ from having successful pop careers out from behind their drum kits, whereas #’s 5-30 almost exclusively from behind the kit.
