This is terrible indeed. My heart goes out to them, and their families.

I imagine Elton may have to cut back to only 100,000 a month on flowers

McCartney's losses were probably just payments to his ex-wife.

Re: Jagger, McCartney, Elton near bankruptcy

Let's have some reality here...

"near bankruptcy"?!?!? Uh... if you lost 12%, 16%, 25% or even 50% of your wealth, you are not "hear bankruptcy".

The market went down something like 30%. If you lost less than that, you are going pretty damn good!

These guys could lose 99% of their fortunes and still be richer than almost everyone.
