Who topped the UK's music millionaire rich list 2014?

The UK's top music millionaires have been compiled for the new Sunday Times Rich List, which will be published at the weekend.

Topping the music list - as in 2013 - is London-based Ukrainian businessman Len Blavatnik, whose empire includes the Warner Music Group which was acquired in 2011.

He is estimated to be worth £10 billion, way ahead of nearest rival Clive Calder - the boss of the Zomba group of music companies - who is worth around £1.4 billion.

X Factor boss Simon Cowell did rake in a further £50 million over the past year thanks to his music and TV hits, according to a new wealth list.

The mogul has seen his worth swell to £300 million to put him in eighth place, boosted by a new deal with ITV for further series of The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent.
