Young, gifted, and rich
Guy Ritchie, Robbie Williams, and the Beckhams feature well up the annual 'rich-list' complied by the Sunday Times.
The top of the music list is still held by the industry's old guard with ex-record label boss Clive Calder heading the pack with £1.235 billion. Sir Paul McCartney comes in second with a massive £760 million in the bank.
But the young guns are coming on strong.
Posh and Becks, despite recent rumours, increased their wealth by £15 million to stand at £65 million. This equals that of old hands Robert Plant and Ronnie Wood.
Beckham's earnings from advertisements mean he dwarfs the wealth of other top sportsmen - Michael Owen has £25 million, and Sol Campbell £20 million.
Pop Idol has seen the wealth of Simon Fuller and Simon Cowell leap. With Fuller now fifth on the list with £220 million, and Cowell's sniping seeing him worth £45 million.
Robbie Williams' recent tour coupled with strong album sales mean he now controls an empire worth £78 million.
