Ringo Starr

Two words ... rich drummers ... may seem like an oxymoron to some, but CelebrityNetWorth.com recently published a list of the thirty richest drummers in the world. In the #1 position is Beatles drummer Ringo Starr with an estimated net worth of $300 million. Phil Collins is #2 with $250 million, #3 Dave Grohl with $225 million, and Don Henley  is #4 with $200 million. With net earnings, royalties, real estate and record sales all taken into account, these top four really come as no surprise, especially when you realize they have either had their own solo careers or fronted their own bands.

Here's the complete list:
