Gary Glitter Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Paul Francis Gadd was born on 8 May 1944, in Banbury, Oxfordshire, England, and is a retired glam rock musician, singer, and songwriter, best known for his popularity during the 1970s to the 1980s, and identified for his extreme image consisting of glitter suits and makeup. All of his efforts have helped put his net worth to where it is today.

How rich is Gary Glitter? As of early-2017, sources estimate a net worth that is at $8 million, mostly earned through a successful career in music. He sold over 20 million albums in his career, and had over 20 hit singles. However, later on his career was overshadowed by numerous legal offences. Despite that, all of his musical achievements have ensured the position of his wealth.

Gary was very rebellious at a young age, initially taken into care, and was frequently running away to visit clubs in London. At the age of 16, he was already performing in clubs, then started to appear in more high profile places. He did a lot of ballads and rock n’ roll songs, and was discovered by film producer Robert Hartford-Davis, and started recording songs under the name Paul Raven.

After a year, he got a new manager and signed a recording contract with Parlophone. He worked with producer George Martin and would release two singles that didn’t sell well. Paul then settled with making television commercials.

Gadd then met producer Mike Leander, who would incorporate him into the Mike Leander Show Band. After the group disbanded, Paul formed a new group called Boston International, which toured extensively and did a bit of recording. He changed his name to Paul Monday and eventually Gary Glitter when glam started to become popular. He recorded the single “Rock and Roll” which featured an A and B side, finding popularity in several countries. Soon he would release a lot more successful recordings, now being backed by the Glitter Band, and starting to showcase his style of glitter suits and platform boots. He released “I’m Leader of the Gang (I Am)” which became his first single to hit number one, and then “I Love You Love Me Love” and “Remember Me This Way”; he had 11 consecutive Top Ten singles in the UK, and became very popular there, increasing his net worth significantly. However, he didn’t have much impact in the US, where glam rock never really took off, although “Rock ‘n’ Roll Pt 2” was later used at National Hockey League games, bringing him significant royalties. Still, he won the Best Male Artist at the “Saturday Scene” music awards, and his net worth was very healthy at the time.

Glitter took a two year break and would then try a comeback in 1976. However, it was a downward spiral from there and the following year he declared bankruptcy. In the 1980s, he did numerous collaborations and guest spots which helped revitalize his popularity. He also opened a restaurant in 1991, but it closed a few years later. He then started his own record label called Attitude Records, which was later merged with Machmain Ltd. During the last few years of his active career, he worked mostly as an in-demand live performer. He released the studio album “Leader II”, and then an autobiography called “The Leader” which became a best seller. In 2001, he released a new album called “On”, but it was cancelled after his arrest and convictions.

For his personal life, it is known that Gary married Ann Murton in 1963 and they had two children but divorced in 1972. In 2001, he had another son with Yudenia Sosa Martinez. In the 1990s, Gary was registered as a sex offender when it was discovered he had thousands of child pornography items on his computer. Gary then left the country for Cambodia, where he was suspected of child sexual abuse. He moved to Vietnam, and was arrested for having sexual interactions with underage girls, then deported to the UK. In 2015 he was convicted of attempted rape and other offences, and is now serving a 27-year jail sentence.

1 I haven't done anything - I am innocent. It is a conspiracy by you know who.
2 I have an incomplete album that I want to finish. I have been thinking about the plan during my days in jail, I have sung rock'n'roll for forty years. After jail, I will continue to rock'n'roll.
