Adam ranked fifth wealthiest bass player.

The article states Adam is worth $150M. That seems much lower than I would have thought. They are one of the most successful bands in history. How are they not worth more? Do they have assets hidden?

I read another similar article earlier this year that said Larry was also worth $150 million. I think they are each worth a lot more. They probably don't have to reveal what some of their assets are worth in France.

I agree. I don't think U2 provides the public with all the information on all their assets.

Id imagine Adams wealth is nearer to $300M

Remember, this is just someone's estimate of how much he is worth. The only people who know how much Adam Clayton is actually worth are his accountants and the tax collector.

U2 have always split everything equally 5 ways haven't they, based on that 'profit' of 750m so about 150m each at this stage wouldn't be far away would it. What each have turned that into is a different story.

Maybe that is what the 150 relates to
