Paul Weller, 63, was born in Woking, England, and knew he wanted to pursue a career in music after being inspired by The Beatles and The Who. He formed The Jam while still at school in the early 70s, and was not only able to just pursue his childhood dream, but rose to the top of the charts time and again.
The Jam’s number one hits include Going Underground, Start! and Town Called Malice.
In 1982, the band broke up at Weller’s behest, and the told The Mirror in 2015 that he “wanted to end it to see what else I was capable of, and I’m still sure we stopped at the right time”.
Next came The Style Council, who were together from 1983 to 1989 before Weller became a solo artist.
16 albums later, he is still one of the most respected artists in the UK music industry.
So after enjoying three decades of success, what is Paul’s net worth?
According to CelebrityNetWorth.com, he is sitting on a £7.2million fortune ($10million).
He has eight children – Leah and Nathaniel, with first wife Dee C. Lee, Dylan, with makeup artist Lucy Halperin, Jesamine and Stevie Mac with Samantha Stock and twin boys, John Paul & Bowie and daughter Nova with current wife Hannah Andrews.
Another British musician worth millions is Beatles legend Paul McCartney.
Paul was born in Liverpool in 1942 and attended a grammar school for education.
At the age of just 15, Paul met John Lennon and his band, The Quarrymen.
The band played a mix of rock and roll and soon after, Paul was invited to join as a rhythm guitarist.
He formed a close relationship with Lennon and adopted the name The Beatles in 1960.
A year later, Stuart Sutcliffe left the band and Paul ended up becoming their bass player.
After extremely hard work, The Beatles established themselves as one of the most successful bands ever and gained worldwide attention.
The band sold more than 600 million records and their biggest concert at Shea Stadium included a crowd of more than 55,000 fans.
They also have several awards including a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, Grammy Trustees Award and Grammy Hall of Fame.
The Beatles hold records for most number-one albums on the UK Albums Chart, most number-one hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and the most singles sold in the UK.
Paul and his band performed their last commercial concert at the end of their 1966 America tour. The band split in 1970 but that didn’t stop Paul who still continued to release music.
His release of ‘McCartney’ went on to be a number one album in America and was also one of the founding members of the band Wings from 1971 to 1981. His wife, Linda McCartney, played keyboard in the successful band.
He also appeared in the musical Give My Regards to Broad Street.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the star is worth $1.2billion or £888million.
