What is Mick Jagger's net worth?

Thanks chiefly to his success in music, which includes everything from record sales to touring revenue, Mick is currently estimated to be worth $500 million. That makes him one of the wealthiest musicians in the world and one of the wealthiest in his generation.

While The Rolling Stones have gone on numerous farewell tours over the years, the band has also continued to release new music until quite recently.

Mick Jagger doesn't plan to leave a generous inheritance behind.

Although Mick has made quite a bit of money throughout his career, he has made it clear that his children shouldn't expect a massive inheritance. “The children don’t need $500 million to live well. Come on,” he said, adding that the money should go to charity instead.

Mick also said that he doesn't want to sell the band's post-1971 song catalog, which is itself worth a pretty penny.

This isn't the first time that Mick has suggested that his children won't be receiving the majority of his inheritance. After all, he came from more modest beginnings and became a huge success, and it seems likely that he'll want his children to do the same.

Elsewhere in his interview with The Wall Street Journal, Mick started reflecting on what the legacy of the Stones might be after he's gone.

“You can have a posthumous business now, can’t you? You can have a posthumous tour,” he said.

Mick also said that the music business has changed a great deal since he first started performing with the Stones.

“The industry was so nascent, it didn’t have the support and the amount of people that are on tap to be able to advise you as they do now,” he said.

Regardless of exactly when he goes, it's fair to say that Mick will leave behind a massive legacy. He transformed popular music in a way few other artists can claim they did.
