Ian Astbury net worth: Ian Astbury is an English rock musician who has a net worth of $15 million dollars. Ian Astbury was born in Heswell, Merseyside, England, and grew up in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, and the UK. He decided to focus on a career in music after hearing The Doors' track, "The End". He began performing on the punk scene in Liverpool in the early 80s, eventually founding the group, Southern Death Cult. The band members ultimately went their separate ways, and he formed a new band called, Death Cult. After releasing their first EP, they shortened their name to The Cult. They released their first album, "Dreamtime", in 1984. Since then, they have released five more studio albums. After creative differences with other members of the band, Astbury struck out on his own. He has since released two solo albums. He later reconciled with the band, and they have toured quite successfully in both 1999 and 2009.
Ian Robert Astbury (born 14 May 1962, Heswall, Merseyside) is an English rock musician and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist for the rock band The Cult.
Ian and his family moved to Hamilton, Ontario, Canada in 1973 when he was 11 years old. He lived there for five years before moving back to the UK. His father worked at International Harvester and his mother was a bookkeeper. In his short time in the country, he developed a love for Canada and has stated in interviews that he will follow the Stanley Cup playoffs, especially if a Canadian team is playing.
In 1979, while living in Glasgow, he was deeply struck by The Doors' song "The End", which he heard while watching the movie Apocalypse Now, later describing this as "a religious experience". In 1980 he was in Liverpool, where he was active on the punk scene based around Eric's Club. After he was made homeless due to a dispute with a landlord over a party at his bedsit apartment, he ended up following Anarchist Punk band Crass. After a period of living in squats and sleeping rough, he moved to Bradford in late 1980. Here he was a founding member of the positive punk band Southern Death Cult in 1981. Southern Death Cult lasted until March 1983, when it was dissolved. Along with guitarist Billy Duffy, bassist Jamie Stewart and drummer Raymond Taylor Smith, Astbury formed a new band, Death Cult, released The Death Cult EP and later dropped Death from the name to become the Cult.
The Cult are a Post Modern Rock band active since 1983. Their first album, Dreamtime was released in 1984, and followed by Love in 1985. Love featured the single "She Sells Sanctuary", which introduced them to an international audience. On their third album, Electric, The Cult made a transformation to hard rock sound with the help of Rick Rubin.
After the release of the 1989 album Sonic Temple, and the single "Fire Woman", Astbury relocated to Los Angeles, California.
The dent in their reputation was amplified by the los
