how much is Max worth $$$$$$$
« on: May 25, 2007, 04:27:21 AM »
I was reading a magazine the other day that said mutt lange earns 10 million dollars in royalties every year. If he sat in a chair and did not move for 365 days he would pocket 10 million!! I started to wonder how much Max is worth? Does anybody have a figure?

I read an article a couple of years ago that said Mutt makes $285000 per week on royalties from his back catalogue. That was before Shania's Up album.
Don't think Max will be anywhere near that level, but i wouldn't mind being %4 per week behind him!!!!

I have often wondered this myself. I'm sure it's a huge amount.
When you think how much Britney Spears and Backstreet Boys have earned when they barely have any songwriting credits (though their pay may be structured differently), Max and the other songwriters would have to earn a huge amount too.

The songs are played so much on radio. In Sydney on 106.5 (classic hits for those who don't know), as you'd know Its Alive, BSB is played nearly everyday!

But yeah it would have to be in the $millions

Wow, Mutt certainly earns a lot! good for him!

I so know what you mean Rebecca. A couple of years ago I heard 4, count them 4, Max songs in a row on Mix 106.5. BSB, Bolton, Britney, Robyn. I bet Mix had no idea they were doing it.

Oh, I doubt that MUTT is anywhere near MAX. I am sure Max earns more.

Mutt didnt really wrote many hit songs, he mainly produced. While that still earns you royalties, the real money is in the songwriting royalties. And thats where Max is clearly more successful. Just take BSBs Millenium. Sold how many records. 34 million? Unbelievable. And every day, Britney, BSB and NSYNC songs get played all around the world.

Yeah I imagine Max is one of the best earning persons of the 90ies.

And quite surely one of the richest Swedes I assume, apart from the Royal family etc hehe

No idea how much exactly, but if I had to guess I'd say about 300 millions. That's around what Madonna is supposed to have. Growing each day.

I guess it must have been always frustrating if you are a songwriter, especially in Sweden, and you put so much work in everything but the money only a few guys actually make.
And I liked it..

Do you mean 300 million Euros or USD or Swedish Krona?

thanks, I thought that's what you meant!
probably about right

I read that Britney has about $100m USD so Max has got to have 3 x that!

True, though ACDC have sold a lot of his produced albums, and Bryan Adams has sold a lot too. I thought co-wrote Shania's albums too?

mutt has been around so many years! Remember that he was involved in music back in the 70's, 80's and 90's before the internet revolution. i remember talking to him at newcastle city hall. He was the most down to earth guy in the world. Aint seen him since. but the pop he made, if he got paid 10 million a week i wouldnt begrudge him that. I would like to think that he is amaster of pop music!!!!! Max i think may be his protege?!?!?!
