    I wouldn't be so sure, when he got contracted, I'm sure his first year in VH didn't give him as much money as he would of gotten in following years. And extreme and the Tribe...ehh I don't know, I wouldn't say he's struggling with money issues.

    He was probably given a million to leave VH.

    He was building a new house on that Vh-1 bands reunited show.

    Gary cowrote "More Than Words" and "Hole Hearted." Those two songs are the reason he'll never be poor. He probably isn't rolling in money, but at the same rate, money wouldn't really be an issue for him, I imagine. He'd be more than comfortable, I suspect.

    Extreme's first 2 CDs sold fairly well, but most "first contracts" don't pay alot to the band so he probably didn't make as much as you'd expect from recordings with Extreme. And they never really headlined a major tour so there wasn't much $$$ there either.

    He probably made 1/4 of his VH tour after paying the crew, etc... so he's made a decent amount of money professionally. Plus, "More Than Words" is one of those songs that will pay royalties for a long, long time so he should be fine.

    I'm sure he isn't hurting. I'd bet his royalties are pretty lucrative and he's mentioned several times how "good" Eddie was to him. I believe Van Halen had just secured a very lucrative publishing deal just after Sammy left. I'd imagine Gary was included in this since he co-wrote all the tunes on "3". If you can build a new house anywhere near the Boston area, you've got some coin.

    I've thought about this topic before. Extreme sold about 5 million copies total. VH 3 sold about 500k. The VH 3 Tour grossed about $10mm. Lets say he also received a nice severance package. He probably broke even on Tribe of Judah and very little on his off-off Broadway shows. Then he probably gets a couple Gs every time an Extreme song winds up a on a CD compilation.

    Since it seems like he hasn't had a real job, he probably isn't hurting for money. However, based on the above he prob "only" has a couple million (less than 5) stashed away. Maybe he has more if he had good financial advice in the late 90s...Curious as to what others think.

    Gary doesn't seem like a money hungry kinda guy.

    He's seems inwardly rich and that's what matters, so I'm sure he's fine.

    I dont necessarily think he's rich or poor... I reckon he's slightly above comfortable.

    Gary was a contract employee of the band I thought. If thats true paying the crew was not his concern.
