Since his birth, there has been a radiance of grandeur, anticipated brilliance and mastery around Sean Lennon. He was the son of a Beatle, the son of the “Lennon” in “Lennon / McCartney.” He did not disappoint. Sean has remained true to himself, not trying to repeat his father’s success, but creating his own success.
Thanks to his father’s musical legacy, his mother’s business know-how and his own businesses, Sean is a rich man. Discover how rich and what its assets are worth.
John Lennon’s fortune with The Beatles
When John was shot in 1980, his assets were estimated at around $ 800 million. Had he lived, you would think he might have added this wealth with more solo albums, and perhaps even a Beatles reunion would have added a few hundred million more dollars.
His widow, Yoko Ono, is cunning in her use of licenses to build on that wealth, using John’s signature and words (‘Imagine’, ‘Real Love’) for children’s bedding, t-shirts and all kinds of fan products. One only has to look at the lucrative deals that have resulted in millions earned with the name The Beatles: the Cirque du Soleil Beatles LOVE show in Las Vegas; The Beatles music anthology CD sets released in the 1990s; The Beatles Rock Band video game and so many others.
“The financial impact of [The Beatles] today is greater than any other artist, living or deceased,” said David Fiorenza, an economics professor at Villanova University who specializes in art and entertainment. “The surviving members and the group’s holding company continue to look for ways that were not available in the mid-1960s. They have always played a pioneering role.”
Sean Lennon’s work ethic
Although he has access to his parents’ income and investments, Sean Lennon continues to work on his own projects, music and performances. His work ethic is admirable, seen in the volume of the music he has made, with albums including Into the Sun; Half horse, half musician; Friendly fire; Rising; Blueprint for a sunrise, and more.
“Whatever I do, people see me as the spoiled weak son of John and Yoko …”, he told The Guardian in 2015. “People have said, why don’t you just do [music] under a pseudonym and see what the true reaction of people would be? I always felt that I would do that, kind of disrespectful towards my father and my family and myself. It’s like oh, well, I can’t be proud of who I am? I didn’t want to hide. “
Sean Lennon’s net worth
Sean has a net worth of $ 200 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
The 44-year-old told The Guardian in 2015: “I have earned a living through commercial work. I have made film music, jingles for companies … It is difficult for me to define myself more or less. I just do my thing. I run a label, make music, I direct this documentary, I try to let my work speak for itself. “
