Andrew Lloyd Webber
The Broadway songsmith tops the list as the only one to crack the billion-dollar mark by all estimates. From Phantom of the Opera to Cats to Jesus Christ Superstar, Webber's instantly recognizable songs have netted him an approximate $1.2 billion in net worth.
There are other entertainers from the past that could arguably be included in this list, including Bing Crosby. The famous crooner racked up a net worth as high as $550 million by some estimates, and adjusted for inflation, that would surely top the list. In addition, some of the entries above would have bigger nest eggs if it weren’t for costly divorces.
