Chris Martin is a singer, songwriter, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist. He is best known as the co-founder, lead singer, and primary songwriter of the rock band Coldplay.
Coldplay has released records, tour, and perform at the biggest music events, and Martin and the rest of the band's wallets are getting fatter and fetter. Collectively, Coldplay is estimated to be worth about $475 million, but only Martin has a hefty net worth.
Martin is worth $130 million, while the rest of the band's net worth barely even break a hundred million. So how did Martin boost his net worth higher than his bandmates? Well, being the lead singer of one of the most famous rock bands today comes with some perks.
Johnny Buckland, the band's guitarist, is worth an estimated $100 million. He began playing guitar at age seven but he didn't set out to be a guitarist in a famous band. He went to college and majored in Mathematics and Astronomy. While at school, Buckland met the rest of Coldplay.
Guy Berryman, the bassist, is also worth $100 million. Like Buckland, he was also attending the University of London and was pursuing a science-related degree, specifically in engineering.
He has written songs for various acts over the years and has had a lot of collaborations with artists like Nelly Furtado, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Avicii, The Chainsmokers, and Dua Lipa.
He has also played himself in a couple of films and shows as well. He has appeared in Brüno, Shaun of the Dead (hilariously as a zombie), Ricky Gervais' Extras, Modern Family, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and The Simpsons.
Coldplay continues to break musical records with every performance and album. They have sold more than 100 million records and had one of the greatest Super Bowl performances ever. So it's only a matter of time before all of the members of the band catch up to Martin's net worth.
