At a reported $3.5 million per gig, Paul McCartney is one of the top paid entertainers in history. He admits that he's constantly amazed at how much time the press spends analyzing his net worth: "Y'know what? I do love it, because people make up about my finances. I mean, even I and my accountants don't actually know my finances, but it's marvelous. (A) couple of years ago I was up to $400 million, and then suddenly, two years later, I'm now up to $700 million? Well, thank you very much. It's not true, but that's really cool."
