8 Rock Stars That Went From Riches To Rags And Back

8 Rock Stars That Went From Riches To Rags And Back Everyone loves a "rags to riches" story, but we also love to hear about "rags to riches and back to rags" stories. Some end there, others have happier endings with the star coming back to the "rich" side of life. Rock Stars are famous for their extravagant lifestyles. Who went from riches to rags and back? We have all heard stories about how famous rock stars blow through their riches as though it will be a never ending supply of money coming their way. Private jets, flashy cars and opulent homes seems to be the recipe for disaster for them. The 1978 Joe Walsh hit, "Life's Been Good" is a song based on the over the top life of a  rich rock star, Maserati, gold records and mansions. Joe Walsh, says he never owned a Maserati  but knew plenty of stars that did and served as the inspiration for the song. He by the way is not broke (thanks to endless years of travel with the Eagles and of course getting sober), but Joe knows plenty of stars that did go broke. Some come back from the brink of broke and some don't There are plenty of rock stars that have made the round trip from rags to riches and back to rags without ever making the whole return trip. These are the folks that either mismagaged their money when it was coming in or blew it all away with and endless party lifestyle. Maybe these are the rockers you see on some lame reality show that  exploits their story or perhaps you will find them working the "oldies concert circuit" in a never ending quest to return to the life of riches. Here are 8 Rock Stars that went from Rags to Riches and back to Rags (and some that got rich again)
