Richard was 70 last October and marked it with six birthday concerts at the Royal Albert Hall. At the same time he released a new album, Bold as Brass, that sold less than 100,000 copies in the UK.This year he is touring with some of Motown’s greatest artists.
Based in Surrey, Richard has a Barbados house to supplement his Portuguese setup, where he recently opened a commercial vineyard producing Vina Nova wine.His company, Balladeer, paid out £12m in salaries between 1999 and 2005, virtually all of it going to Richard.As he has never written his own songs, Richard missed out on this lucrative income stream, but record sales of more than 250m help make up for that.
