Rob Thomas Net Worth: Rob Thomas is an American singer and songwriter who has a net worth of $17 million. Rob Thomas was born February 14, 1972 in Landstuhl, West Germany. He is best known as the primary songwriter, lead singer and front man for the band Matchbox Twenty as well as for his successful solo career. He has also lent his songwriting talents to such artists as Tom Petty, Willie Nelson, Mick Jagger, Marc Anthony, Pat Green, Taylor Hicks, Travis Tritt and Daughtry. The Florida-based band Matchbox Twenty broke through in 1996 with Push and never looked back. Single after single, the scored hits in various radio formats and their debut LP, Yourself or Someone Like You, went platinum 12 times in the U.S. Thomas himself won numerous songwriting awards for such Matchbox hits including Real World, If You're Gone, Bent, and Mad Season and later parlayed that success into a career as a solo artist. As a youth, Thomas dropped out of high school at 17 and bounced around the south singing in rock bands before relocating to Orlando in 1993. There, he helped form the band Tabitha's Secret, a precursor to Matchbox Twenty. Thomas eventually left the lineup, along with bassist Brian Yale and drummer Paul Doucette, and formed Matchbox Twenty with guitarists Adam Gaynor and Kyle Cook. The band's multi-platinum debut, Yourself or Someone Like You, established Matchbox Twenty as a superstar act, but Thomas wasn't individually well known. When Thomas co-wrote the chart-topping single Smooth for the Carlos Santana album Supernatural, however, his individual clout increased. The Santana track took home three Grammys, including the coveted Song of the Year award and even Thomas landed on People's Most Beautiful People list. Mad Season (2000) and More Than You Think You Are (2002) continued Matchbox Twenty's success, but the band members soon decided they needed a break and Thomas used the hiatus to write and record his first solo album. Rob Thomas returned to the Matchbox Twenty fold several years later, but maintained work on his solo material, the second batch of which arrived in 2009 under the title Cradlesong. In addition to his music career, Thomas also made a guest appearance playing himself and with Sinbad on the fourth season of the show It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. He is also a frequent guest on Real Time with Bill Maher.
