  1. This is way off…Duff invested in Starbucks when it was a local Seattle coffee shop. He’s at least richer than slash and way richer than dizzy lol

  2. Yeah. In addition to Starbucks, he, also, has/had, early chunks of Microsoft and Amazon, thanks to his businessmen family. I read in an interview that Duff and his family live off of G’N’R publishing. It sounded like the profits from the, previously, named companies have never been touched. I read that the day Starbucks went public, Duff made, more, money than, all, his music ventures will, ever, make. Call me crazy, but I think Duff is worth, well, over $500 million. I read somewhere that he’s a, major, financer behind these G’N’R ‘reunion’ tours, in order to keep ticket prices down

  3. Lmfao!!!! Major financier to keep cost of tickets down???? More like major financier to charge as much as they possibly can.

  4. My first time seeing them LIVE was in Sept 2021 and it was an awesome 3 hour show. They were energetic, happy & jammed out. It was worth the $330 pit ticket price to not have Covid protocols and Wolf Van Halen’s band Mammouth opened the show and they were excellent.

  5. Never saw G n’R, but that 300 and some odd dollars for a pit ticket is totally reasonable these day’s. Pit ticket’s for the Dead and Company show at Wrigley Field in Chicago were actually a bit more. This is 2021, not 1973 folk’s.

  6. Doesn’t add up. Slash has featured on computer games and toured almost non stop with bands since guns n roses while axl sat at home. Plus duffs investments in stocks abs shares not to mention both Slash and duff released books.

  7. It does make total sense Axl would be the richest because he owns the rights to all of GnR’s music….& i dont think Duff is trying to keep costs down, i paid $700 for a pit ticket but i got early entrance into the venue and easily got front /center…worth every penny

  8. I could’ve sworn slash was in the hole since his recent divorce. I heard duff donated some of his pay from the last tour to help him recover
