Sir Paul McCartney has beaten Bono to be named the world's richest lead singer, with an estimated personal fortune of $795.2 million.

The Beatles legend landed first place in the CelebrityNetWorth.com poll, with U2 frontman Bono trailing at number two with $595.2 million.

Jimmy Buffett ($396.8 million), Sir Elton John ($318.4 million) and Sir Mick Jagger ($302.4 million) round out the top five.

Sting, Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie, Axl Rose and Steven Tyler also chart high on the countdown, while only two women have earned mentions on the list - No Doubt's Gwen Stefani takes 29th place with $80 million (£50 million) and Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks is at 38 with $64 million.
