The Sunday Times is set to publish a list of Britain's richest musicians. Paul McCartney tops the list again this year, with an estimated net worth of £820 million ($1.1 billion).

The Beatles legend's fortune increased by £40 million from last year.

Lord Andrew Lloyd-Webber came in at number 2 on the list, with £740 million.

U2, Elton John, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards follow them.

Ed Sheeran made more money (£28 million) than any other British musician in the past year.

The newspaper compiled the list for the 30th year based on "identifiable wealth," which includes known assets such as ownership of land, art, racehorses and shares in public companies. Money deposited in private bank accounts is not considered.

The 160-page special edition of The Sunday Times Magazine will come out with the Rich List this Sunday.
