Net Worth & Earnings
How much net worth do you expect from a normal American singer? Well, he made a net worth of over $7 million. The reason why he never made it big was his inconsistency and lack of proper coordination. He formed too many bands which harmed the overall image and nobody took him seriously thereafter. Most of the money came from album sales and singles. But the major contributor was his stage performances and world tours.
Even though he has not found huge success in the singing field, he has made a mark. His world tours and live performances were hugely crowded, and he is compared to the likes of Jim Morrison and Elvis Presley. He is 63 years of age, but his passion for music has not yet slowed down.
