17. $220 million – Ozzy Osbourne
With a “modest” net worth of $220 million, Ozzy Osbourne is one of the richest rockers alive.
Ozzy started his career as the leading vocalist of heavy metal band Black Sabbath. In 1979, he switched to a much more acclaimed solo career. Throughout the two distinct periods, the artist sold more than 100 million albums, earning him a well-deserved nickname -“The Godfather of Metal.”
Despite having a tumultuous personal life of battling addictions, the Madman managed to stay in the limelight and booked a cozy spot into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, alongside other legendary performers. Despite such an honor, Osbourne did something considered by most rock fans completely inappropriate – he starred in a reality show alongside his family.
“The Osbournes” was one of the most watched series on MTV, granting the 68-year-old an intimate contact with younger generations other dinosaurs on our list could only dream of.
Can you guess who’s next on the list? They call him “the Mod.”
