Unofficial GNR Social Media Update / Discussion


Recommended Posts

I thinking Dizzy is probably going "show me the money".   :lol:  But then again, I am no good at figures like these or what it takes to support the lifestyle that goes along with having that kind of money.  I would have had all that income in investments, moved out of California and been working my ass off the whole time.  Then again, I might have said I have enough and I'm out of here, permanent vacation.  Still would have moved out of California.

I think they've underestimate Duff.

Exactly. Dizzy is probably doing pretty ok, especially after NITL but in the late 90s - 00s he couldn't afford to pay for his daughters dental so Axl paid it... so I don't think since 2006 he's suddenly accumulated 40million. I'd be surprised if Slash has 40million in his bank account ready to spend. Dizzy probably has a nice house that he's all paid up on, but he needs to stay working otherwise his cash would run low after a few years.

With Musicians it's kinda like pro wrestlers, you hope they are making savings and investments so that they can retire and not have to tour when they are Old as fuck against their will. 

I think it was around 2013/14 that his ex wife was seeking donations on Twitter to put their daughter to University. I never knew about the dental shenanigans, it does make me curious to know what sort of crust he was pulling in back when they were trying to get Chinese off the ground in the mid 90's - I would have thought he'd have been well looked after.

I could be mixing my stories, but I think that was the story Dizzy told to explain Axls friendship/loyalty.

The 'going rate' for session musicians onstage is quite surprisingly low. Not saying he was being laid that of course.....but I wouldn't be surprised if he was, and still is, not getting anywhere near as much money per gig as people would think based on the crowd sizes and ticket prices.

He's got that Pinball machine that went for something like $20,000, so he must be doing alright nowadays!

In comparison:  

Who is the richest singer of all time?
Herb Alpert is an American jazz musician, who became famous as the group notoriously known as Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass. They're also often referred to as Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass or TJB. Alpert has racked up an impressive net worth of $850 million, making him the richest singer in the world.

How does that happen?  One maybe two hits that I know of.  More than Elton John and Mick Jagger.  I don't think the internet knows what it's posting.  :lol:  Imagine that.

Those internet celebrity net worth sites aren’t even close to accurate. Howard Stern often uses these figures to talk to celebrity guests about their net worth and they almost always scoff and say the figure is way off and mostly elevated.

Though one celebrity - I can’t remember who - scoffed and said “that’s way off - I’ve got a lot more than that!”
