The number one spot on the list was retained by Clive Calder, the music industry tycoon, with £1.35 billion — a fortune made from the sale of his Zomba record label to BMG in 2002.
Sir Cameron Mackintosh, the theatrical producer, was in second place with £725 million, up from £675 million on the 2011 list.
Metaphorically, because I put it to him that he should be rubbing his eyes over the fact that he still has a hectic touring schedule, is on TV tonight showcasing his latest album, has gigs and an album planned for next year and will be headlining a benefit gig for Hurricane Sandy shortly. The Beatles were on record as saying we didn't think it would last 10 years.
And, his peers The Rolling Stones play in London next week, with other big names from his era also prominently in action. But it kept on and kept on and it kept being good and we seemed to be the people who could do it.
On July 30, 1968, the Beatles closed their 'Apple Boutique' store at 94 Baker Street, Marylebone, London after seven months of business and losses exceeding 200,000 Pounds, they gave away all the stock to passers by and Apple staff... And on that very same day the song entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #10, two weeks later on September 22nd it would peak at #1 and for 14 of its 19 weeks on the chart it was in the Top 10... I have listened to a good portion of their catalog (11 albums down, just a few more to go) and this is my favorite so far.
At the time the Fab Four didn't have a record on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; but just over six weeks later on September 8th "Hey Jude" entered the Top 100 way up at #10, the following week it climbed to #3, then on it's third week on the chart it reached #1, and there it remained for 9 weeks... I get tired of some people's constant supposition that all Beatles songs have to have a main drug basis.
A vegetarian, Mc Cartney wrote several cookbooks and was also active member of PETA.
In 1995, Mc Cartney discovered that she had breast cancer.
The simplicity is part of the song's beauty - it doesn't need anything fancy to convey its comforting message.
Lord Lloyd-Webber was fourth with £590 million, down from £680 million.
Simon Cowell, the television producer, reached number seven, with £225 million.
He's excited about the TV special tonight, Live Kisses, in which he performs songs from his last album of standards Kisses on the Bottom, a mischievous title which is actually about signing kisses on a letter, a line from the opening number, “I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter.” In a stylish black-and-white film, he performs as vocalist with no guitar, alongside Diana Krall on piano, a top jazz band and guest stars Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder.
But we talk also (unusually for him) about his family, about John Lennon and The Beatles in the early days, about his happiness with his new(ish) wife Nancy, but also about the darker side to that era of innocence, the current clamour over Jimmy Savile, child abuse and inappropriate sexual relationships with adolescent girls in the Sixties and Seventies.
