Well that depends, if you mean the the music industry it would be David Geffen (Geffen and Asylum Records) or Richard Branson (Virgin Records) although a large of portion of there fortunes come from other areas, movies and airlines ect...... If you mean only music then Clive Calder who started Zomba Music Group (1.5 Billion), and if you mean a musician it would be Paul Mcarteny, although Madonna and Jay Z are creeping up on him and wealth is hard to estimate for performers. P.s Micheal Jackson could be broke, or a billionaire it's hard to know.
