UK’s Richest People in Music 2014

Ever wondered how much an artist or producer is worth? Who tops who in the Music Millionaires chart is something everyone will be interested in. We know these celebrities have a lot of cash laying around, but how much exactly…..

The Sunday Times Music Rich List 2014 list is based on land, property, and other assets such as art, racehorses and stocks and shares. Topping the music list is London-based Ukrainian businessman Len Blavatnik, who created the Warner Music Group. Blavatnik is estimated to be worth £10 billion, way ahead of nearest rival Clive Calder, the boss of the Zomba group of music companies. He is known to be worth around £1.4 billion.

Simon Cowell, now 8th on the rich list, has ranked in whopping 300m from his Music and TV shows such as X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent. Now he own properties all over the globe, including a 7.5m house in London, a 10m estate in Barbados and a 13m home in Beverly Hills, oh and not forgetting properties in Malaga and Dubai too. There is no stopping this man splashing his cash!

Celebrities outside the Top 10 include David and Victoria Beckham at 13 with £210m. Lower down the list includes the great Sir Tom Jones (No. 23 – £145m), Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne (No. 26 – £130m) and of course Robbie Williams (No. 27 – £120m).

Incredibly, 26 year old Adele still tops the under 30’s Rich List, even though she hasn’t released an album since 2011. Adele is an Oscar-winning artist, who recently hinted that her third album would be released a some point in 2014. She has doubled her takings that of 2012 and is now said to be worth £45m (an £15m increase from 2013). Cheryl Cole and Leona Lewis are the only 2 other females in the top 10.



Closely behind Adele is the Scottish artist Calvin Harris, who is said to be worth 30m. Following Calvin is the richest boy band in music history, who now have a combined wealth of 70m. One Direction each are reported to be worth 14m each, that includes Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson. This would be there second time on the rich list.

Ultrasonic Cleaning Services

Beautiful, luxurious gold plated items and Jewellery need to be cleaned regularly to retain the sparkle and exquisite finish. Here at Gold Status we have been working alongside a British Ultrasonic manufacturing company to produce a machine specific to our needs. Cleaning diamonds and putting a shine back on to luxurious metal finishes along with process treatment productivity, is something we needed all in one package. For the last 5 months working alongside the Ultrasonic specialists, they were able to develop such a machine that out performed our expectations.

What is Ultrasonic Cleaning?


Ultrasonic technology uses transducers to produce cavitation bubbles in a water solution. These airless bubbles are developed by very high pressure waves, unnoticeable to the human eye. This reaction ends with the cavitation bubbles collapsing on themselves, which in turn removes surface contaminants and dirt. A cleaning agent is also used within the solution to break down the surface tension in the water. It gets a lot more complicated than that but thats all we are going to tell you. We don’t give trade secrets away that have taken us months of research, trialling and development.
