Flea, Krist Novoselic, Geezer Butler Ranked Among World's 10 Richest Bassists
Bring on the bass player jokes all you want, but even these guys know how to make millions from time to time.

An interesting list has recently surfaced on Richest, making a rundown of the world's 10 richest bassists.

A few expectedly wealthy musicians, such as Gene Simmons, Sting, and Paul McCartney made the top, but representatives of the more "alternative" side, so to speak, such as Nirvana's Krist Novoselic or Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers of also made the Big 10.

As you might remember, Duran Duran's John Taylor was branded best bassist ever in a recent Music Radar poll, but this one's all about the cold, hard cash. So without further ado, check out the world's richest bass players below.
