Shevell's estimated £150 million ($225 million) fortune helps rocket the 71 year old up the Music Millionaires List to number four, behind Zomba Group boss Clive Calder, Sir Cameron MACkintosh and Warner Music Group head Len Blavatnik, who tops the rich list with a £10 billion fortune.

Take That star Gary Barlow, who has recently been accused of tax avoidance, also makes the rich list with a £65 million ($104 million) fortune.

The full list will be available in the Times on 18 May (14).
