The Pop Idol creator features alongside fellow pop mogul Simon Cowell, famous for shagging page three girls and being rude to people.
The chart is mostly full of high-ranking suits who wouldn’t mean much to you, but also features Jonathan Woss (38) and Daily Mirror gossip slags, the 3am Girls (50). Bono (11) is the only artist in the list, included for his tireless work to erase Third World Debt.
Presumably that’s based on his efforts rather than results.
Ian Grenfell, from Silentway Management (DiS' financial backer) is in at 24.
Simon Fuller, who famously ‘created’ Spice Girls and S Club 7, runs the management company 19 Group, and has since gone on to make stars from teenage stutterer (and Jordan shagger), Gareth Gates, Will Young and Darius Danesh. Fuller recently became the first British music manager since Brian Epstein (The Beatles’ manager) to hold the top three positions in the US singles chart. They were Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard, together with the American Idol 2 Final 10.
Fuller's alleged to be worth in excess of £90m, unsurprising given that he’s had 96 number one singles and 79 top-placed albums in both the US and UK; and has managed the artists behind 358 top 40 singles and 224 top 40 albums in the two of the world's biggest music markets.
