Warner Music Group chairman and chief executive Edgar Bronfman has topped the 2010 Sunday Times British Music Millionaires chart, with a fortune of £1.64 billion ($2.5 billion).

Bronfman qualifies for the list after moving from New York to London last year. His fortune is partly based on his family's past ownership of the Seagram drinks empire.

Bronfam is ranked at No. 25 overall in the 2010 list of the 1,000 richest people in Britain. He has pushed former Zomba record company owner Clive Calder into second place, unchanged at £1.3 billion ($2 billion), in the Sunday Times Music Millionaires Top 50.

Musical theatre composer Andrew Lloyd Webber is at No. 3, down from No. 2 in 2009. His wealth dipped from £750 million ($1.15 billion) to £700 million ($1.07 billion).

London theater impresario Sir Cameron Mackintosh, unchanged at No. 4, has seen his fortune rise by 81% year-on-year to £635 million ($972.3 million).

Sir Paul McCartney increased his wealth by 8% to £475 million ($727.3 million), but slipped from No. 3 to No. 5.

U2 is again the top Irish music millionaires with wealth in 2010 of £429 million ($656.9 million), an increase of 1%.

U.K. singers Charlotte Church, Katherine Jenkins and Leona Lewis are in joint first place, all with £11 million ($16.8 million), on the Top Young Rich List Music Millionaires. Artists have to be under 30 to qualify.

The Sunday Times Rich List 2010 is published April 25 with the Sunday Times.
