Paul McCartney remains Britain's richest musician
Paul McCartney remains Britain's wealthiest musician, according to the Sunday Times Rich List.
The newspaper estimated Thursday that the ex-Beatle shares a $1.05 billion fortune with his third wife, Nancy Shevell, whose family owns a U.S. trucking company.
McCartney has topped the musicians' list every year since it was first compiled in 1989. Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber is ranked second, with an estimated 620 million-pound fortune.
Adele topped a parallel list for musicians under 30. She is judged to be worth 30 million pounds.
The full ranking of musicians will be published Sunday.
The overall Rich List -- a widely respected measure that draws on public records of property, shares and other assets -- will be released April 21.
