Sir Paul's still at top of pop's rich chart.

SIR Paul McCartney is still the wealthiest pop star in Britain according to the latest rich list.

Sir Paul remains static on pounds 713m but is still well ahead of second-placed Lord LloydWebber on pounds 420m.

Not even Robbie Williams, who makes the list for the first time, with pounds 35m could come anywhere close to the ex-Beatle's fortune.

Sir Paul has not had a major boost to his income in the last 12 months compared with the previous year when he inherited millions from his late wife Linda and proceeds from sales of his Beatles greatest hits album, 1.

But that should be remedied by 2003 following a series of lucrative live dates throughout this year.

Music svengali Pete Waterman from Warrington, who was a judge on ITV1's Pop Idol and helped Kylie Minogue and Steps to record careers, makes the Rich List for the first time. His fortune of around pounds 45m is enough to take him to 794th place in the overall list and 39th in the music millionaires chart.

George Harrison's widow, Olivia, is worth an estimated pounds 140m, according to expert Philip Beresford, who compiled the figures which will be published in full in The Sunday Times this weekend.

Other Merseyside stars on the list include Michael Owen (pounds 12m) and ex-Liverpool players Robbie Fowler (pounds 10m) and Steve McManaman (pounds 9m).

Manchester United's David Beckham has become Britain's richest sports star under the age of 30 when his fortune is added to his wife Victoria's, giving a total of pounds 35m.
