Ahead of the publication of their annual rich list, The Sunday times have released the top music millionaires in the UK and Ireland.

The only female to rank higher than the superstar is Irish woman Enya, who came in 28th position with an estimated wealth of £91 million.

Sir Paul McCartney tops the list with a staggering £760 million, with Lord Lloyd-Webber, U2, Sir Elton John and Sir Mick Jagger rounding out the top 5. The combined wealth of the top 5 music millionaires in the UK & Ireland amounts to estimated fortune of almost 2.5 billion.

The early publication of this list signifies that it’s almost that time  of the year when the Sunday times reveals their ultimate rich list. The full Sunday Times Rich List will be published by the newspaper on Sunday.
