The 30 Richest Drummers Get The Last Laugh

    There are a million great drummer jokes (What’s the last thing a drummer says in a band? “Hey guys, why don’t we try one of my songs?”), but if you’re a drummer in a big band, you get the last laugh. That’s according to Celebrity Networth, which has tabulated the “30 Richest Drummers In The World” (there’s a useful music list…)

    No surprise as Ringo tops the heap with a cool $300 million, but Phil Collins and Dave Grohl aren’t far behind. Of particular note is the fact that Blink-182’s Travis Barker is barely out of the top ten, beating seemingly more famous dudes Tommy Lee and Alex Van Halen. And don’t worry, Rush fans: Neil Peart makes the list, but he doesn’t need a bunch of cash to know he’s awesome. Full list below. Wait, don’t take a bathroom break! Where are you going?
