The fastest-earning millionaire in musical history, apparently...
Fatboy Slim has been named as the quickest earning multi-millionaire in music history.
In a newly published report, the DJ/producer is said to have accumulated a #10million personal fortune, thanks largely to the international success of his ‘You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby’ album and the singles lifted from it. The 1999 Rock Accounts sees his success as a prime example of the shift to business-minded stars and away from the traditional image of manipulative managers and crooked lawyers.
The report also names The Chemical Brothers and Jamiroquai in the top ten, worth #4million each, and Catatonia and Stereophonics worth #10million between them.
