Default Lightfoot worth

With Gord's announcement of his upcoming marriage, I've been getting internet breaking news that his worth has skyrocket to $58 million (Canadian) due to his extensive touring and most nights being sold out or near-sold out.This is quite an accomplishment for any 75 year old. Anyone else seeing this info?

MEDIAMASS is a satirical sort of website- http://en.mediamass.net/people/gordo...hest-paid.html

Last mention was of 30 million at this site: http://www.celebritynetworth.com/dl/gordon-lightfoot/

What happened to his previous marriage?

Why even bother considering he probably gone too much?

The info you saw was from a joke/parody site and shouldn't be taken seriously.

I remember reading something way back in 1977 or 1978 that Gordon was once quoted as saying, "I've made over five million in my lifetime, and I don't care who knows it."

Adjusting for inflation, that five million dollars is worth about 25 - 30 million today.

Add in return on his investments and ongoing royalty payments, plus residual earnings from touring, his net worth is probably a lot higher than $30 million, or even the $58 million figure quoted in the internet article.

So we've basically made a circle back around to the original article I read. If Gord was as frugal with the money he had after various overhead, as I've known my own relatives with Scottish roots to be, then he's managed to save a decent amount.

I would be over the moon if strangers were discussing my financial affairs on the internet.

I'm really more interested in when I can see him next in concert.

Have been to (I think) 15 shows since 1991.

Considering the Nov. 5 show in Carmel, IN



We know Gord has $$$. Doesn't the speculation on his $$$ seem more like food for the tabloids?????

Just sayin'
