The drinks are on this lot...

Paul McCartney has again been named as the richest music star in Britain and Ireland.

The former Beatle and his wife Nancy Shevell top The Sunday Times 2016 Music Millionaires Rich List for another year with an estimated combined wealth of £760 million - up a cool £30 million on last year. The figure includes Paul's Beatles wealth and Nancy's £150 million stake in her father's New England Motor Freight trucking operation.

Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber remains the second richest with £715m (up £65m from last year), and U2 are third with £500m.

Mick Jagger is revealed as the richest member of the Rolling Stones (£235m), who are listed separately, though their combined wealth as a band totals a massive £630m. 

Supermodel Iman Abdulmajid and her filmmaker stepson Duncan Jones are placed at 29 on the list; the majority of their £90m fortune inherited from David Bowie's will and royalties.

The richest music act under 30 is Adele, who is at 30 on the list with an estimated fortune of £85m. The only female singer with a bigger fortune on the list is Enya on £91m.

Adele tops the Young Music Rich List for the fifth year running, with the 27-year-old's fortune boosted by the release of her third album 25 last November.
