I mean granted he played Vegas, but my god, the guy owned multitple houses and cars and jewels, but did he really make that much money simply by playing Vegas?
Record album sales, TV appearances, touring, touring, touring constantly.
And a million bucks still bought plenty of house.
He was worth $5M when he died That's not really wealthy. Many people are born with more.
r2, link please.
This one says he had a NW of $115 million and that was in 1987 dollars.
Of course, there are people who are born with more than $115 million, but that has nothing to do with whether that is a lot of money or not.
