Nice to hear about Herb Alpert. Check out his biography to see how he made all that money. He was a songwriter back in the day who penned many hits and was a founder of A&M Records. He is long married to the amazing Lani Hall who was one of the original girl singers with Sergio Mendes and Brasil ‘66. Herb and Lani still perform regularly and have a new album out. They gave $30 million in 2007 to USC for the music school. They are a great force for music in Los Angeles.
So no messy divorces to wipe out his wealth.
