Sir Paul McCartney has topped the latest Sunday Times Rich List of musicians with a personal fortune of £730m.

The Beatle’s fortune is estimated to have risen by £20m on 2014’s figure, in part due to a boost from his wife, Nancy Shevell’s, £150m stake in her family’s trucking business.

Andrew Lloyd Webber is second on the list with an estimated £650m fortune while Irish rockers round out the top three with £431m to their name.

The highest new entry on the list is producer and DJ Calvin Harris. The Scottish musician reached number 30 in the list with an estimated £70m fortune.

According to the list, the sum puts Calvin on a par with Mark Knopfler and Pete Townshend.
