James was born to Shirley Ashworth, an ex-model and Neil Arthur, a former DJ, and is of Scottish and English descent. He attended Ings Farm Primary School in his home town but later moved to Bahrain following his mother and her new husband, where he enrolled at the British School of Bahrain. After this marriage failed, James returned to UK where he continued his education at Ryehills School in Redcar, North Yorkshire. However, his childhood was quite rough as he spent the majority of time in various foster homes after his mother and step-father split. Since the age of 15, James has been writing and recording songs, and before fame and a solo career, he was a member of several bands including Moonlight Drive, Cue the Drama, Save Arcade and Emerald Skye. These engagements provided a moderate basis for James Arthur’s now respectable net worth.

The real breakthrough in James Arthur’s music career occurred in 2012, when he auditioned for the 2012 TV series of “The X Factor”, and on 9th December 2012 he was named the winner of the show after gaining 53.7% of the votes. His winning song, a cover of Shontelle’s “Impossible” was released as a single for charity causes Together for Short Lives. Subsequently, it became the fastest-selling X Factor’s single ever with over 250,000 downloads in the first 48 hours, and reached No.1 on the UK singles chart within one week of release. It is certain that this initial success helped James to make a name for himself in the music industry, as well as to earn millions.

In 2013, James Arthur released another single “You’re Nobody ‘til Somebody Loves You” which peaked at No.2 on the UK Singles Chart; subsequently James’ eponymous debut studio album was released by Simon Cowell’s Syco Music in November 2013, and instantly reached No.2 on the UK Album Chart, bringing huge popularity to James Arthur. It is certain that these accomplishments have helped Arthur to massively increase the overall size of his wealth.

In late 2013 and the early 2014, James Arthur caused a stir in the media due to some of his controversial and homophobic lyrics in his singles “Hey Mickey”, and his rap mixtape “All The World’s a Stage”. These had led to the breakup between James Arthur and Syco Music, but in May 2014 he independently released his controversial mixtape.

In May 2015, James Arthur performed on The Story So Far tour. In the early stages of 2016, he released another single, “The Truth”. On the 28th October 2016, James Arthur’s second studio album “Back from the Edge” hit the charts, released under the Columbia Records label and including the hit single “Say You Won’t Let Go”. All these ventures have helped James to dramatically increase the total size of his net worth by a large margin.

When it comes to his personal life, James Arthur is considered to be a real womanizer. In the past he was romantically involved with several women including dance teacher Lucie Poole, his X Factor colleague Chanelle McCleary, TV personality Kimberley Garner, glamour model Lacey Banghard and Playboy bunny Carla Howe. The latest rumor says that James and his now longtime girlfriend Jessica Grist, are planning an engagement ceremony. However, this remains to be seen.

Joshua Scott “JC” Chasez, also known as JC Chasez, Big Daddy or J. C. Chasez is a white American who was born on August 8 1976 in Washington, United States of America, but he was raised in Bowie, Maryland after he was adopted by Roy and Karen Chasez when Joshua’s biological mother entrusted care of him at the age of 5. Chasez has never known his biological father and he seems not to have any plans to search for him. So JC Chasez grew-up in his new family with a younger brother Tyler and a sister Heather. As a child he attended Robert Goddart Middle School and always loved dancing during school years.

JC Chasez Net Worth $30 Million

Today JC Chasez is mainly known as an American boy band ‘N Sync member, occasional actor, singer, dancer and songwriter. Today he has a net worth of $30 million, But Joshua’s first steps in his future career weren’t so notable for the rest of the world. As a boy JC Chasez was extremely shy, but he was able to fight with his modesty and joined the Mickey Mouse Club.

The first real success came for Chasez after the formatIon of a band called ‘N Sync which has become extremely popular in the USA and Europe from 2000. Although ‘N Sync broke up in 2002, the have sold more that 9.9 million copies of their album “No Strings Attached”. This was one of the biggest investments in Joshua’s net worth, but the band have licensed their likenesses and released microphones, lip balm, marionettes, books, key chains, cloths and video games with their emblem. The band has also been dealing with McDonalds, Chilli’s Grill & Bar. In 2009 N’Sync was even immortalized in wax In New York’s Madame Tussaunds museum and can be seen there until today. N’Sync members acheived not only worldwide recognition after releasing their albums and singles, but also earned huge amounts of money from live performances and different merchandise.

Since 2002 JC Chasez has tried several different aspects of the entertainment industry – he has written songs, produced records, danced and even appeared in some movies. His most notable appearances were in a movie called “21 and a Wake-Up”, where he played Dr. Tom Dury, in “Killer Movie” as Ted Buckley, in “Longshot” as a pizzeria worker, and in “Greetings from Tucson” as Jay Dugray. But mostly he has become known as a singer, because after leaving ‘N Sync he started his own solo career and released his first solo single “Blowin’ Me Up (With Her Love)” in 2002. JC Chasez’s debut album “Schizophrenic” appeared in 2004 and was able to take 17th chart position in the US and 46th position in the United Kingdom.

Unfortunately, nowadays JC Chasez’s career isn’t as successful as it was 10 years ago. His last released solo album “The Story of Kate” in 2007 didn’t appear in any charts,  and since then JC Chasez has just made appearances in some other albums as a guest. He was talking about ‘N Sync reunion in 2011, but until today this ambition has not come to fruition.

Neal Schon Net Worth

Published

on

Neal George Joseph Schon was born on 27th February 1954 at Tinker AFB (Air Force Base), Oklahoma USA, of Italian and German descent. Neal Schon is a rock guitarist, songwriter and vocalist, best known for being an important member of several hugely popular bands, namely Santana, Bad English and Journey.

So just how rich is Neal Schon? Neal’s net worth has been calculated to be over $30 million, amassed during his successful career of more than 40 years in the music industry.

Neal Schon Net Worth $30 Million

Neal Schon was lucky to be born into a musical family – his father Mathew Schon was a famous musician and mother Barbara Schon sang in a band. So Schon picked his first guitar at the age of five years, and starting at early age is usually a way to success. His first career steps started at the age of 15 with the band Santana, in preference to joining Eric Clapton in the band Derek and the Dominos, and debuting with some vocals on Santana’s album Santana III. Being such a great musician at such young age with the possibility to choose between two iconic bands, he went on and started making his money. He also played for Azteca but very briefly.

In 1973 Neal Schon formed his now legendary band Journey. He subsequently released five solo albums, and fourteen studio albums with the band. This must be the main flow into his net worth. Importantly, he is the only band member who has not changed through the years. He has taken part in every tour of the band, and sang on all their albums, so no doubt this longevity with Journey has increased the overall amount of Neal Schon’s net worth as well. Apart from this, he has also collaborated with famous musicians such as keyboardist Jan Hammer, Sammy Hagar and Paul Rodgers on short-term projects.

Neal Schon is as great a vocalist, as he is a guitar virtuoso. Two talents double the money earned, does it not? Let’s talk about his musical influences, of whom there were plenty. He has said that he was highly influenced by the 1960’s, musicians from that era such as Gladys Knight and Aretha Franklin. Then he put some blues to the mix, namely B.B. King and added some guitar-based influences, including of course Carlos Santana and Eric Clapton as well as Wes Montgomery. This is probably Neal Schon’s key to fame – adding the best ingredients from different musical eras.

Schon was always proud of his guitars. He started with acoustic Stella guitar followed by Gibson ES-335. At present he became interested in Xotic guitars. Schon was inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame in August 2013, which made him, if possible, even more famous. This is considered to be an accomplishment of a lifetime for any musician.

In his not-so-private personal life, Neal Schon has married five times, first to Tena Austin(1976-86), then Beth Buckley(1987-92), Dina Gioeli(1993-99), and Amber Kozan(2001-08). In 2013 he married Michaele Salahi. He has five children.
