These newspaper rich lists are 100% made up.

I imagine MK spent a lot of his wealth building BG.

His ex wife would have got half of the big 80s money.
The rich lists are not 100% made up they are based on mainly publicly available company accounts and in the case of musicians for example the earnings are not hard to find either.I would say 70-80% accurate.

I remember an interview where Mark was asked about his net worth and that it is estimated to be around 100 mils, he said that he's got twice that. I can't remember where I've read or heard that, but I remember it! As well as the dentist story ;D

I also remember MK saying every year he goes to his accountant and ask him if he needs to worry, and he answer him he can still live various life's.

There is talent and of course there is luck. I have read about some incredible life stories that would've never happened if the person hadn't been at the right place, at the right time. It's quite unbelievable how someone's life changes dramatically by pure accident. I think you can call it luck (or lack thereof).

I think in some cases luck plays a smaller role in the equation Mark’s being one of those. The guy has just too much talent. On the top of that he’s always been a hard worker. Sting and Clapton are the same.

I would include Ed in the success.

Virtual proof Mark is loaded is the very existence of this topic. Just imagine how much money he’d make if he decided to reform Dire Straits. The fact that a mediocre Italian singer is making good money out of a tribute band whereas the man himself couldn’t be bothered says tons on the subject.

Exactly......

You can see how much money his company makes in a given year but you have no idea what he spends his money on so that info is worthless.

If he earns a million and spends a million on crack and whores, how much is he worth? Or if he bought a house for a million the sold it for ten 5 years later? Complete guess work.

That wouldn’t leave much time for making music.

Different tours even! And I think I've seen Mark's OES tour belt like 10 years prior. And the same watches too. Great quote ;D

You'd hope there were plenty of the 'same' style clothes otherwise MK would be awfully stinky!!!
