Late Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts left a fortune of more than $37 million to his wife and daughter.

According to UK newspaper The Sun, Watts’ will included £29.6 million – about $37 million in U.S. dollars – to his widow Shirley and their 54-year-old daughter Seraphina.

That total doesn’t include Watts’ estate in France, believed to be worth millions more, or his car collection.

Watts died last August at the age of 80.  The Stones included a special tribute to Watts on their No Filter tour earlier this year.

Does $37 million seem like a lot, or too little for someone who spent 50 years in the biggest rock band in the world?
