Last year we published an article that listed the UK’s Richest Rock Stars. With recent IPO events unfolding, we thought it might be a good idea to take another look at that list. At the time of our original publishing, Sir Paul McCartney was at the top with approximately $750 million in personal wealth. With a quarter of a billion dollar lead over his closest rival Sir Elton John, it seemed like it was going to be quite some time before anyone unseated the great Macca. Indeed, even Mick Jagger and Keith Richards (#3 & #4 consecutively) didn’t stand much of a chance since there was a half billion dollar gap between the Beatle and the Stones.
Brooklyn quartet Black Taxi has been generating quite the buzz lately in the indie-rock world. From their seven performances at this year’s SXSW to the release of their critically acclaimed second album, We Don’t Know Any Better in January, it seems that the band is turning heads and garnering fans everywhere they go. Following up on these successes, the band is preparing to begin a series of spring tour dates that will see them traveling down the East Coast, along with appearances at several festivals. Additionally, the band has released a brand-new remix of their song “Friend”, off their latest album, by esteemed NYC producer Fake Money; it is available as a free download via their Facebook page.
