If you are of a particular vintage you may recall that the Beatles sang a song about the Taxman.  Beatles founder, legend, knight - Sir Paul McCartney probably needs a good tax accountant.  In a poll Sir Paul tops the list as the world's richest lead singer, with an estimated fortune of $795.2 million.U2’s Bono trails at number two with 2-hundred million less -- $595.2 million.

Following were Jimmy Buffett at $396.8 million, Elton John with $318.4 million and Mick Jagger with $302.4 million.
