Things ultimately escalated to a point at.
which the IRS confiscated essentially whatever Nelson owned in 1990, and the bad country.
star had to invest years in tax debt limbo. At one point, he even launched an album called.
The IRS Tapes: Who'' ll Buy My Memories? in an effort to raise money to pay his tax expense. “” This is a collection of songs that is very.
unique to me, and I hope you'' ll take pleasure in listening to them as much as I took pleasure in playing them.
for you.” “Regardless of those efforts to pay back his taxes,.
Nelson wasn'' t fully in the clear. As Texas Monthly reported in 1991, his financial resources.
were somewhat rocky even without the IRS calling to gather. The country legend had a routine of keeping.
a big entourage and dispersing his cash easily to hangers-on, in some cases to the point.
that he himself had little left. Chan Marshall, much better referred to as Cat Power,.
is one of the premier indie music success stories of the late nineties and early 2000s. By the 2010s, she was a revered artist that.
handled to offer out venues wherever she went on trip. That'' s the kind of career that not just makes.
people assume an artist has financial security, but also root for her to have it. Isn'' t it nice when an indie rocker.
can secure such a substantial slice of the success pie? So imagine everyone'' s surprise when Marshall.
canceled her 2012 European trip due to the truth that she had actually gone bankrupt. To be fair, she had some perfectly excellent reasons.
for her unfortunate monetary situation. She has a history of addiction, psychotic.
breaks, and mental health concerns. Some of these have resulted in hospitalization,.
which have actually required wallet-hurting trip cancellations. In 2012, she had invested the majority of her savings.
on producing her hit album, Sun, when she was struck down by angioedema, a nasty immune.
condition that swells up the throat, tongue, and face and is potentially lethal. Luckily, she recuperated, and she seems.
It'' s most likely fair to say that Ron Isley of. In 2006, he was charged with 5 counts of.
tax evasion and one count of “” willful failure to submit an income tax return,” “which netted him 3.
years and one month behind bars, together with $3.1 million in back taxes. This was the final stroke in a history of IRS.
troubles, to the point that the judge called him a, quote, “” serial tax avoider.” “Isley ' s history with money is definitely less.
than excellent. He initially declared bankruptcy in 1984, and.
the second time came in 1997, when the IRS had enough with his antics and seized a bunch.
of his property, including cars and trucks and a luxury yacht. In 2001, the vocalist was discharged from personal bankruptcy,.
He quickly failed to file his tax returns for the past 4 years and cheated on his.
return for 2002. His 2006 prison sentence taught.
him his lesson and put him back on the straight and narrow.That is, if one overlooks that he was still.
fighting the IRS in 2013, and his earliest tax return troubles go all the way back to.
1971. At least he'' s constant. Brooklyn-bred indie rock band Grizzly Bear.
Broke big around 2006. According to a 2012 interview with Vulture,.
they went from playing at restaurants for handfuls of individuals to opening for Radiohead, having.
their music featured in Super Bowl ads, and being applauded by Jay-Z. Still, years of indie eminence, sold-out locations,.
According to vocalist Ed Droste, they'' re. The band members still live in the very same places.
they did pre-fame, and a few of them don'' t even have medical insurance. While Droste confesses they'' re managing, he.
informed Vulture the reality that no one'' s buying records anymore makes bands appear bigger.
than they in fact are. He likewise noted that even the apparently financially rewarding.
act of licensing a tune will just bring the band members a little amount of monetary security.As Droste put it, it may make them go, “” Yay, I don'' t have to pay lease for two months.” “Grizzly Bear generates the majority of its earnings.
from touring, but after representatives, supervisors, tour personnel, locations, Ticketmaster, and others.
have actually taken their share, the band members' ' bank accounts are apparently absolutely nothing to compose.
home about. To make things simpler on their wallet, they.
cut expenses by just sleeping in hotels sometimes and usually treating the entire operation.
as a dangerous small company. Sly Stone and his group the Family Stone were.
a pillar of the late sixties and early seventies music scene, and songs like “” Dance to the.
Music” “and “” Everyday People” “stay popular culture examples to this day. It'' s simple to think that Stone, as the frontman.
and main songwriter of the group, would be rolling in the same sort of cash many other.
superstars of the era do. Unfortunately, rather, in 2011 he was rolling in his.
camper van, which he likewise lived in. If you go back to 2007, Stone was still.
living the sort of life you'' d get out of a star of his caliber.He had a substantial home, numerous vehicles, and a.
vineyard in Napa Valley. Nevertheless, it appears that the mix of.
a large drug routine and some monetary difficulties, including a $50 million lawsuit versus his.
former manager, ultimately left him in a bad place. While Stone himself claimed to take pleasure in the transient.
van life, that might have just been him attempting to put a positive spin on his scenarios. Luckily, his finances have rather enhanced.
thanks to the Music Modernization Act, which dragged copyright law shouting and kicking.
into the contemporary age. In the procedure, it netted Stone some certainly.
welcome streaming royalties. Conor Oberst, who is best referred to as the creator.
of the indie band Bright Eyes, informed W Magazine in 2017 that he just recently transferred to Omaha, Nebraska.
because he couldn'' t pay for New York City leases any longer. One of the reasons he can'' t make ends fulfill. in the Big Apple probably has something to do with the time he fell victim to a weird.
and hurtful online scam. Oberst'' s credibility took a serious hit in.
2013, when an anonymous woman declared online that he had attacked her.That accusation went viral on the web.
and eventually infected mainstream media. Oberst'' s agents released a declaration,.
and a back-and-forth over whether the artist was guilty or not began raging. 5 months into the event, Oberst sued.
the commenter, who had actually erased her initial post, for libel. 2 months later, she confessed that she had.
made the whole thing up for attention. Still, the story was already out there on.
the internet, and lots of people were now seeing Oberst'' s name in combination with a.
nasty accusation.From his time in The Partridge Family to his.
status as a significant pop star, David Cassidy'' s lengthy profession and completely smiling face.
always made it seem that he was delighting in a financially safe and secure life. Unfortunately, that couldn'' t be even more from.
the fact. Prior to his death in 2017, he was dealing with.
dementia while also handling the problem of financial problems. In 2015, People Magazine reported that he.
declared insolvency and that his collected financial obligations ran as high as $10 million. His beneficiaries received only roughly.
$ 150,000 in properties and assorted music souvenirs. One possible factor for Cassidy'' s remarkably.
low net worth may be that the dementia he claimed he was combating was not, in reality,.
dementia at all. He had a history of alcohol addiction and had 3.
DUI arrests in his final years, and in 2018, a documentary that aired on A&E revealed that.
prior to his death, Cassidy confessed that the dementia was actually everything about alcohol.He had actually been drinking and silently suffering.
from a liver illness while his household believed he was clean. Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver frontman.
Scott Weiland was well-known for his battles with addiction. His longtime devils finally got the very best of.
When he died of an unintentional overdose of drug, MDA, and ethanol in December 2015, him. As such catastrophes tend to do, this prompted.
Since his death, Weiland'' s estate has been. In general, the total worth of his estate was.
reportedly $1.6 million, according to court files filed in 2018. That doesn'' t noise too bad, but there are.
some substantial costs to pay. Weiland apparently owed $645,000 to City National.
Bank and $700,000 to a “” considerable federal lender,” “that makes the net worth of his.
estate less than a year'' s worth of royalties. As such, it appears that his kids didn'' t precisely. become millionaires over night. In 2018, a judge ruled that the estate must.
pay the two children of Weiland and his ex-wife Mary an allowance of $4,000 per month until.
they turn 18. Considering that the children were currently.
15 and 17 at the time of the ruling, they'' re not exactly set for life. Famous Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister.
roamed the earth'' s places nigh-constantly from the seventies to his death in 2015. He'' s indisputably one of the best rock.
stars of perpetuity. As his band'' s sole consistent member and their.
primary songwriter, he must by all accounts have actually been rolling in numerous millions. Or two you'' d think. According to Metal Insider, the overall worth.
of Kilmister'' s estate at the time of his death was initially assumed to be around $8.3 million. Nevertheless, it eventually ended up being $648,000,.
which is certainly nothing to discount, but it does look like a pretty insignificant sum.
for a lot of decades of sheer rock '' n ' roll. Naturally, it'' s not like Kilmister didn'' t. have chances to spend what he made throughout the years. He was understood for his excesses, from his decades-long.
speed and alcohol routines to his extensive collection of German war souvenirs. In some ways, his relative absence of wealth.
isn'' t unexpected at all, considering just how much he was living up the rock star way of life.”” Without drugs, would there be a Motörhead?” “” Oh yeah there would be, yeah, some sort.
