Paul McCartney still UK's richest musician

By

LONDON -- Let it be -- as in billionaire.

Paul McCartney remains Britain's wealthiest musician, according to the Sunday Times Rich List.

The newspaper estimated Thursday that the ex-Beatle shares a $1.05 billion fortune with his third wife, Nancy Shevell, whose family owns a U.S. trucking company.

McCartney has topped the musicians' list every year since it was first compiled in 1989.

Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber is ranked second.

Adele topped a parallel list for musicians under 30.

The full ranking of musicians will be published Sunday.

The overall Rich List -- a widely respected measure that draws on public records of property, shares and other assets -- will be released April 21.
