Kenny Loggins was raised with two older brothers by Lina, who worked as a homemaker, and Robert George Loggins, a salesman. Before the family moved to Alhambra, California, they lived in Seattle and Detroit. Kenny matriculated in 1966 from San Gabriel Mission High School, after which he formed the band Second Helping, but which was short-lived and released only three singles between 1968 and 1969. Still, with that move, his net worth was established.

Kenny`s professional career really began in 1970, when he met up with Jim Messina, and the two began working on Kenny`s first solo album, which was to be released through the ABC-Dunhill, however, by the end of the recording process of the album, Messina and Kenny had become a duo, with a name Loggins and Messina. The two released six studio albums, before they decided to pursue solo careers in 1976. Some of the albums include “Sittin` In” (1971), which was their first album, “Full Sail” (1973), “Mother Lode” (1974), and “Native Sons” (1976), the sales of which increased Kenny`s net worth.

Kenny continued to produce music on his own, and his first album came out in 1977, entitled “Celebrate Me Home”, which eventually achieved platinum status, having been sold more than one million copies. His second album came out the following year, entitled “Nightwatch”, which reached the US top 200 chart at No. 7, and it also reached platinum status, increasing further Kenny`s net worth.

In the following years, Kenny`s popularity rose remarkably, making him one of the greatest musicians through the 1980s, with such albums as “High Adventure” (1982), and “Vox Humana” (1985), and singles “Footloose”, “Danger Zone”, and “Nobody`s Fool. Some of his songs were written exclusively as soundtracks for films such as “Footloose”, “Danger Zone” for the blockbuster film “Top Gun” (1986), and “Meet Me Half Way”, which can be heard on the soundtrack for the film “Over The Top” (1987), all of which added to his net worth.

Kenny`s popularity began to drop in the 1990s, and except for the albums “Leap Of Faith” (1991), and “Return To Pooh Corner”, which went platinum and gold, he had little success.

So far he has released 13 solo albums – except for the ones already mentioned, some of his albums include “The Unimaginable Life” (1997), “It`s About Time” (2003), and his latest release “All Join In” (2009).
Most recently, Kenny wrote the song “Art Of The Deal”, which has been used as a soundtrack for the comedy film “Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal: The Movie” (2016).

Speaking about his personal life, Kenny Loggins has been married twice. His first wife was Eva Ein whom he married in 1978, and they had three children together before they separated in 1990. Two years later, he married Julia Cooper, with whom he had two children. He and Julia wrote a book about their relationship “The Unimaginable Life” (1997), but they divorced in 2004. He now lives in Santa Barbara, California.

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.

Ozzy Osbourne Net Worth

Published

on

John Michael Osbourne was born on 3 December 1948 in Aston, Birmingham, England, and is  widely known as a songwriter, singer and television personality, considered to be one of the developers of heavy metal music, and being called the ‘Godfather of Heavy Metal’. He initially came to notice playing with the band Black Sabbath, but from the early ’80s continually moved until concentrating on a solo career. Ozzy has been inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame and the US Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame, plus has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and was the first on the Birmingham Walk of Stars.

So just how rich is Ozzy Osbourne? Authoritative sources estimate that Ozzy has a net worth of over $220 million, accumulated during his career in the music industry which began in the late 1960s.

Ozzy Osbourne Net Worth $220 Million

Ozzy’s father John was a toolmaker, and his mother Lillian a factory worker. He was called ‘Ozzy’ in primary school, and adopted it as his stage name. As Ozzy suffers from dyslexia,  school really wasn’t for him except for drama, so he left at 15 and took various jobs, although training as a  plumber, then as an apprentice toolmaker, but spending a short time in jail for petty theft taught him a timely lesson.

Ozzy was really interested in music, and sang with a couple of bands in the late ’60s, one of which became Black Sabbath with bassist and main lyricist Geezer Butler,  singer Ozzy Osbourne, drummer Bill Ward, and guitarist and  songwriter Tony Iommi, now the only surviving original member of the band. The band’s style, partly reflected in their name, was very appealing, and they were significantly successful in the UK and USA during the ’70s, with their debut self-titled album, and the follow-up album Paranoid, eventually achieving multi-platinum status. However, Ozzy’s increasing use of drugs saw him leave the band in 1979, although there have been several collaborations since; regardless, his net worth was very well established.

In the early 1980s, the group Necromandus played with Ozzy Osbourne on his first solo project, the Blizzard of Ozz incarnation, also the title of his first solo album, a popular success with  heavy metal fans. Ozzy’s subsequent solo career spread over more than three decades, has increased his net worth the most; seven of the eleven studio albums he has released have achieved multi-platinum certifications in the US alone. A further large financial success has come from annual festival tours called ‘Ozzfest’, of the US and sometimes Europe. It was founded by Ozzy Osbourne and second wife and manager Sharon in the mid-’90s, and performances by many heavy metal and hard rock musical groups have been featured. Since its beginning, sources estimate that over five million people have attended Ozzfest, resulting in revenues of more than $100 million.

Ozzy Osbourne’s net worth also rose sharply as a result of ‘The Osbournes’, a reality television series showcasing the life of the singer and his family which was aired from 2002-05; the show was created by Jonathan Taylor and became one of MTV’s greatest hits. The success of the show led to the Osbournes hosting the 30th Annual American Music Awards in January 2003, and the BRIT Awards held at Earls Court, London in 2008. Various awards and nominations have also helped increase Ozzy’s net worth, including a Grammy Award for the track ‘I Don’t Want to Change the World’, a Godlike Genius Award from NME magazine, among many others.

Additionally. Ozzy won the Literary Achievement honour in 2010, for his autobiography “I Am Ozzy”, which hit the New York Times’  non-fiction best-seller list at No 2. Osbourne has also acted three times as a judge for the Independent Music Awards, which supports independent artists’ careers.

In his less-than-private personal life, Osbourne has been married twice, firstly to Thelma Reese (1971-82), with whom he has a daughter named Jessica Starshine, and a son named Louis John. Ozzy has been married to Sharon Arden since 1982, and their three children are Aimee, Kelly and Jack . Recent rumours of Ozzy’s affairs seem to have done little to break-up the couple. Ozzy openly blames his sometimes controversial lifestyle on drug and alcohol abuse, and praises Sharon for constantly dragging him out of periods of instability. They currently divide their time between residences in Buckinghamshire, England, and Malibu, California.
