David Geffen – $6.9 Billion
Donna Summer, Nirvana, Blink-182, and many more are all signed with Geffen Records, the record studio founded by David Geffen and which famously released John Lennon’s Double Fantasy album. Geffen also was one of the three parties who began DreamWorks Studios along with Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg. Today Geffen is worth $6.9 billion dollars and spends most of his time on philanthropy as well as being an outspoken Democrat. Donating hundreds of millions of dollars to UCLA, Geffen has become the largest individual benefactor to the UC system.
