    Wealthiest member of VH?

    Does anyone know what these guys are really worth? I would just have to guess Sammy, god the tequila, records, he still tours, man he must be the richest at this point. Any feed back on this?

    Yeah, I would think Sam or Ed....

    Sams's got all the money from the tequila,and Ed has all the guitars and gear,d-tuna,etc...

    I think Al only has a lambhorgini,6 porches,5 jags,2 pickup trucks,4 motorcycles,and 3 yachts...So he's hurting pretty bad.....

    I would have to say that Sam is probably the richest member/ex member of Van Halen. He just made 80 million dollars on the sale of a percentage of his Tequila business last week. Let's not forget that Van Halen split their writing royalties 4 ways, thus Sam is still making 1/4 on all VH related materials from 1985 on.

    Up until very recently it might have been Mike. I remeber another thread on this site that outlined how well he has done for himself with some good investments and has more money than any of the original members. But with Sam's tequila sale, he might have the most now. Not that it matters, because if Dave or Al were the poorest of the bunch, they are all still filthy rich.

    I bet Ted Templeman's loaded. Does he get a cut of the sales of the albums he produced? I don't know the ins and outs of points, etc.

    I wonder how much Dave and Al are worth? I think Sam just took the title of the highest earnings for a Rock Star this year!

    I'd say that Ed and Sam are probably running a close race.

    BTW, is it true that Ed has his own porn production company? I heard that he did. "Sacred Sin" was supposedly filmed at his house. I'm just curious and haven't had time to search the forum.

    So by stacking all of those copies of "Penthouse" and "Hustler" in my closet, I was a producer and merely didn't know it? Damn. Time to update my resume on CareerBuilder.com...

    Muff & chef, Thanks! The better you get to know me, you'll see how curious I am. I love to fill my brain with as much info as possible.
