Wonder what a site like that can make just doing a little add and subtract and no verification of the accuracy of the numbers they're coming up. Basically misleading people....lying actually.

It really consists of a series of wild guesses with no real basis in truth. I mean, Vinnie worth $700k? It's clear the guy essentially doesn't have a pot to piss in these days, which is probably not entirely unconnected to his reluctant reappearance in recent years. Same with Bruce...he's a jobbing musician who will be living fairly comfortably, but certainly won't be worth anything close to that figure.

I personally know a musician who appears on that site who is ostensibly worth $2m or something along those lines. Trust me, they aren't!

Id say G+P would be around 100m not those quoted figures. VV would have nothing...Ace maybe up to 3m maybe with assets...Pete prob around the same. BK prob up to 2m with assets

I had to look up Marty Abrams since he's on the packaging, and he's got the Paul figure proudly on his homepage. lol

You must have excellent vision--I never would have been able to read his signature on the Kiss packaging ! Thanks for the link and bringing that to my attention.
I watched a show on Netflix about "The Toys That Made Us", and I believe I saw Marty speaking on there.

-- Agreed! $35 million, or thereabouts, seems far more likely.

Not many folks playing clubs and fairs are worth $15MM. Peter might have an edge on Ace—Gigi might keep the spending in check?
