He is also widely recognized for his solo career during which he has released a dozen studio albums and numerous singles of which the most popular certainly was “It’s So Easy (Listen to Me)”.

Have you ever wondered how much wealth this veteran musician has accumulated so far? How rich Denny Laine is? According to sources, it is estimated that the total of Denny Laine’s net worth, as of mid-2017, exceeds the sum of $10 million, acquired through his career in the music industry which has been active since 1957.

Denny’s interest in music dates back to the early age of 11 when he started playing guitar. He attended Yardley Grammar School, but had his first public performance at the age of 12. Soon after, under the alias of Johnny Dean he founded Johnny Dean & The Dominators, then in 1962 he changed his stage name to Denny Laine, and joined The Diplomats – the group with a rather specific visual style performing alongside the legendary Beatles in mid-1963. Despite all these, The Diplomats lacked commercial success as they never released a single recording, which led Denny to leave the band in 1964, team up with Mike Pinder and found The Moody Blues. Shortly after, the band released “Go Now”, a single which instantly became a hit, making a real commercial success which provided the basis for Denny Laine’s net worth.

After parting ways with The Moody Blues, Denny formed his own music group in late 1966 – Electric String Band. In June 1967, Denny led his band to perform alongside The Jimmy Hendrix Experience in London’s Saville Theatre, but it failed in gaining more international recognition. Between 1969 and 1971, Laine was a member of Balls before teaming up with former Beatle Paul McCartney and his wife Linda, and forming Wings, in which he served as a guitarist, vocalist as well as a keyboardist and occasionally bassist. During its 10-year-long lifespan, the group released seven studio albums, performed on five tours and released commercially successful hit singles such as “Deliver Your Children” and “Mull of Kintyre”. This latter venture helped Denny Laine to dramatically increase the total of his net worth.

Denny has since performed with his own Denny Laine Band, as well as with Phoenix and World Classic Rockers. Parallel to all these engagements, he worked on his solo career too, which officially started in 1973 when his debut solo studio album “Ahh… Laine” hit the charts. So far, he has released 11 more solo albums, as well as 12 compilation albums and has also collaborated with several big names of the music industry including, apart from those already mentioned, George Harrison, Zak Starkey, Mike McGear and Eddie Hardin. Doubtlessly, all these achievements have helped Denny Laine to add a significant sum to his wealth.

When it comes to his personal life, since 1990 Denny Laine is an American citizen. He was briefly married to an American model, actress and singer Jo Jo Laine with whom he has a son and a daughter. From relationships with Helen Grant and Catherine James, Denny has two more children, while from the marriage with Ainsley Laine-Adams he has one more child. He has been married to Joanne Alice Patrie since 1978.
