I've lifted this from another music site. Thanks to the correspondent who extracted the relevant information from "The Sunday Times Rich List". I reproduce without comment, judgment or even sarcasm (apart from the thread title, of course).

I just saw this man on the news yesterday. He's not a musician but this is when being rich is at it's best.

Car jumper helps out families
Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority (AMHA) officials are chest-out proud of the generosity Akron's Chris Bryant is showing families living in Joy Park, Mohawk and Wilbeth Arlington homes.

The 23-year-old Bryant, who was vaulted into national celebrity after he was featured by Beacon Journal staff writer Jim Carney in a series of stories about his car-jumping abilities — has asked Nike to direct $10,000 of his earnings to provide groceries and Wal-Mart gift cards to 200 AMHA families.

''Chris will not only distribute groceries and gift cards to the families, but will also entertain the crowd by demonstrating his car-jumping talents,'' Christine C. Yuhasz, AMHA's community relations director, said of the event Saturday from noon to 1 p.m. at the Firestone Park Recreation Center.

Bryant, who has starred in Nike commercials, also has appeared on Ellen DeGeneres' show and others.

I don't mind musicians getting rich, however intolerable their music might be. At least they have a creative talent. It's the global arms traders and City fat cats I have less sympathy for.

Couldn't agree more! Throw all the arms traders in jail for Conspiracy to Murder, I say.

I'm currently worth -£97,000. I do have quite a lot of maths books for sale - anyone?

ah, but who is going to buy a MATH book, knowing that you got your numbers all wrong? Absolute values don't count when it comes to money, does it? But in answering my own question, you may just have a buyer in this household. Make a seperate thread about the details of your math book, what is covered, who it's targeting, and price, and we'll have a looksie. Being a homeschooling family, there is always a need.

Although he's famous as the owner of Island, Chris sold his company to Polygram (now Universal) and makes most of his money through real estate and a chain of hotels.

He was reputed to have sold Island for £200 million, so if he's down to £100m, you might wonder where it all went. He spent a lot on the ill-fated Palm Pictures label but surely he can't have blown all of it on Baaba Maal videos.

I don't believe the numbers - I'm certain that Robert and Jimmy are worth a lot more than that, and Jimmy has way more than Robert!

I have read (the chapter with the practical application for figuring the odds when placing bets) segments of Gordon's book online. I missed a lot of math in my early schooling and couldn't believe how clear, consice and thorough Gordon's writing is. I also became interested in AND able to UNDERSTAND that which he was explaining. I do hope you connect with Gordon and check it out.

I wonder how fast I could spend a hundred million dollars?

I had no idea, either. So I followed the money, and it took me down an interesting trail... (get on with it, fercrisesake!)

Jamie Palumbo is a property developer, who also owns the Ministry of Sound (I suppose that's the club and all the commercial spin-offs). There is another Jamie Palumbo, a rock musician, on t'interweb, and your first google might lead you to his site. You'll look at it, think £160MILLION - THIS!?!? and realise that he must be the other Palumbo.

Robert Bourne and Sally Green He is a "property entrepreneur", and bought Ronnie Scott's club a few years back. I don't know if he bought it as a music promoter or fan, or as part of a property portfolio. I'm sure Ronnie Scott could have come up with a witty and biting answer.

Sally Green is a theatre impresario (as was my uncle, who was a talent spotter but died broke) who has a control of The Old Vic.

Judy Craymer is the producer of the Hit West End musical extravangza "Mamma Mia". Soon to be a movie, it recently celebrated its 500th performance. Checking the website and listening to those songs, I feel like going and redistributing some of my dosh to Judy.

Nor do I. Unless you are willing to believe Sunday Times journalists have exclusive access to the accounts and all the assets of said filthy rich. They are guesstimates, based on whatever public information they can cull. It's more about a piece of Sunday Times puffery than anything else, appearing to have some sort of in depth knowledge. It's also in the interests of the vanity obsessed rich to exaggerate their wealth. So a nice collusion between the power jockeys and their monkeys. Are we supposed to be impressed, envious or both?

The Independent on Sunday did it's own list yesterday as an antidote to the Sunday Times celebration of greed and bling called the Happy List - 100 Britons who give rather than take and have made Britain a happier and better place.

Not very musical as they deliberately eschewed showbiz but it does includes Norman Jay, Michael Eavis and - most pleasingly - Mark Ellingham, founder of the Rough Guides and one of our most enthusiastic champions of world music. Oh and Peter Tatchell is in there,as well, which I thought was very satisfying... I'd have had Sir Charles Gillett in the list too (the spreading happiness list, I mean, not the rich one!)
