Mick Jones (Foreigner) Net Worth $25 Million

To begin with, Jones was inspired by Elvis Presley to pursue a career in music. He started in late 1960, as a member of the instrumental rock ‘n’ roll band Nero and the Gladiators. The group released two singles that had minor success in England in 1961. After the group disbanded, Mick went to France and obtained the position of a guitarist in the orchestra of Eddie Vartan, and at the same time he worked with the younger sister of the latter, Sylvie Vartan. Then from 1965 to 1974, Mick Jones was the official guitarist for Johnny Hallyday. He accompanied the French rocker on stage until 1970, and collaborated with him recording albums until 1974. Mick Jones was not only an instrumentalist for Hallyday, but also a composer of some thirty sings often written in collaboration with Tommy Brown, with whom he shared the task of conductor. Later, he joined Gary Wright to form Wonderwheel. His net worth was well established.

In 1973, Jones and Wright re-formed Spooky Tooth, and released studio albums “You Broke My Heart So I Busted Your Jaw” (1973), “Witness” (1973) and “The Mirror” (1974). After that Jones was a member of the Leslie West Band. He also played on Peter Frampton’s album “Wind of Change” (1972), and on “Dark Horse” (1974) for George Harrison. In 1976, he formed the band Foreigner with Ian McDonald, the soul of the first album of King Crimson and Lou Gramm. Jones co-produced all the band’s albums and co-wrote most of their songs with Gramm. In 1984, Jones wrote the song “I Want To Know What Love Is” for Foreigner, which was a huge success, topping the charts in the USA, UK, Canada, Australia and some European countries – the single was eventually certified platinum. However, tensions were growing within the group during the 1980s, caused by differences in musical taste between Gramm who preferred hard rock, and Jones – more inclined towards synthesizers. Lou Gramm left the band in 1989, to return in 1991.

In 1989, Jones compiled his only, self-titled solo album under the of label Atlantic Records, which included among others Billy Joel, Carly Simon, Simon Kirke from Bad Company and Foreigner’s Dennis Elliott. The same year, the guitarist collaborated with Eric Clapton for the disc of the latter “Journeyman”. He wrote the lyrics of “Bad Love”, the song composed and performed by Eric Clapton, with Phil Collins on drums and Pino Palladino on bass, with Clapton being awarded the Grammy for the Best Male Rock Vocal Performance for the song. Overall, all the above mentioned engagements have increased the total size of Mick Jones’ net worth, and which as steadily increased over the years in collaboration with others in Foreigner.

Finally, in the personal life of musician, Jones married the socialite Ann Dexter Jones in 1985, but the two divorced in 2007; they have two children, and Mick has two sons from previous relationships.

#Quote
1I had a few friends who used to busk - I never actually did but I was quite interested. If I walk past a guy playing in the street I usually drop some money in the hat: it's a musician earning his money. I always think that could have been me.
2I really like the way "Waiting For A Girl Like You" sounds on acoustic guitars, rather than the piano and synths and guitars on the record. It was a song that came together really quickly; I wrote the whole thing in about half an hour. It's one of those occasions where a song comes together really quickly, and you try and think back and work out how it all happened so easily - and you never can!
3I'd have to say that I follow the George Harrison approach to playing. George was never the guitar hero type of musician, he played for what enhanced the song, and that's been my approach to all my playing in Foreigner.
#Fact
1Replaced Luther Grosvenor in the group Spooky Tooth.
2He was married to socialite/writer Ann Dexter-Jones, mother of Mark Ronson, Samantha Ronson and Charlotte Ronson. Ann and Mick have two children, Annabelle and Alexander Dexter-Jones. Married for nearly 25 years, in 2007 Jones and Dexter-Jones divorced. He also has two sons, from prior relationships, Roman, partner in Miami's largest nightclub group, The Opium Group, and Christopher Jones.
3Formed Foreigner after meeting former King Crimson multi-instrumentalist Ian McDonald. The two then recruited English drummer Dennis Elliott and three Americans, including vocalist Lou Gramm, and dubbed the band Foreigner due to the fact that the band was half-British and half-American.
4Guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist of Foreigner.
