Robbie Robertson Net Worth
Robbie Robertson net worth: Robbie Robertson is a Canadian singer/songwriter who has a net worth of $40 million. Robbie Robertson earned his fortune as the heartbeat of the 1960s rock act, The Band. Robertson performed in several groups before becoming the lead guitarist and main lyricist for The Band. As a guitarist, Robertson has earned heaps of praise from music critics. Rolling Stone ranked him 59th on its of 100 greatest guitarists of all time. Bob Dylan described him as 'the only mathematical genius I've ever run into that offends intestinal nervousness with his rearguard sound.' Robertson received equal praise as a songwriter. He penned a string of classic including 'The Weight', Up On Cripple Creek and Broken Arrow. After The Band dissolved in the late 1970s, Robertson embarked on a solo career and went on to produce Neil Diamond's albums, Beautiful Noise (1976) and Love at the Creek (1977).
Robertson earned full songwriting credit for The Band's most popular songs. This caused some controversy with his Band bandmates, especially Levon Helm, who thought the songwriting was a group effort. Today Robertson receives the lion's share of The Band's considerable royalties. This caused a falling out between Robbie and Levon who at one time had been close as brothers.
As a soundtrack producer he is notable for his work with director Martin Scorsese. Robbie has produced the soundtracks for dozens of movies including the Scorsese movies The King of Comedy (1983), Raging Bull (1980), Casino (1995) Gangs of New York (2002) and Shutter Island (2010). To date, Robertson produced five solo albums. His song, Somewhere Down the Crazy, (from his first album) was his biggest solo hit. In 2008, Robertson, along with The Band, received the Grammys Lifetime Achievement Awards for their outstanding contribution to the music industry.
