Q-Magazine for August 1998 has a list of the 100 richest British musicians. McCartney is at No. 1 with about 500 million pounds sterling, and Steve in joint 53rd place (with Dave Stewart, Sade, Kate Bush and the Spice Girls, individually) with 12 million pounds (estimated). The write-up is:

"Winwood upgraded from R&B prodigy to AOR king in the '80s, Roll With It justifying Virgin's 13 million US dollar advance with a US number 1. Has a home in Nashville and a manor house near Cheltenham. Enjoys shootin' and other squirearchical pursuits. Pops down the pub at the reins of a pony and trap."
