Mike Rutherford net worth: Mike Rutherford is an English musician who has a net worth of $45 million dollars. Born October 2, 1950 in San Pedro de Guildford, United Kingdom, Mike Rutherford was a founding member in the band Genesis and one of the band's only two consistent members, where he played bass guitar and supplied background vocals. In addition to his many years with Genesis, Rutherford released two solo albums in the early '80s. In 1985, he formed the highly-successful spin-off group Mike + The Mechanics, which went on to become a chart-topping and significant live draw and earned Rutherford an Ivor Novello Award for their 1988 single The Living Years, co-written by Rutherford with B.A. Robertson. In the mid-eighties, Genesis went on a world tour in support of the album Invisible Touch. The tour was massive—covering 111 shows, 59 cities, 16 countries, in front of three million fans. Around the time Genesis came off the road from the huge tour, Rolling Stone magazine named the group Band of the Year in the their annual reader's poll. Rutherford received his first guitar at the age of 8 and played in his first band, The Chesters, at the age of 9. At the age of 13, he joined the band Anon and formed a songwriting alliance with fellow guitarist Anthony Phillips, whom he later started the band Genesis with at age 15. Rutherford lives in Surrey, England with his wife Angie. The couple married on November 13, 1976 and have three children.
