...and in theory, wiser. We asked the pop icons you grew up with what they've learned about money.

America's older brother

Smartest money move: "My mother and father encouraged me to buy beachfront property, which was helpful. It grew enough in value that I sold it, and it became the down payment on my first house. I have set up a pension plan that I must contribute to every year. That came from training from my father, and from the school of hard knocks.

"The years following 'The Brady Bunch' were not as active as I would have liked. The nature of this business is erratic, so I learned to plan for the times when work may not be as abundant. No amount is too little to save."

What he tells his son about money: "I live beneath my means, so that I don't spend everything that comes in. My son is only four years old, but in the anticipation of the high tuition payments ahead, I began to shift some of my funds toward saving for his education.

"And when I can, I make investments that do not mature for at least five years. I put money into bonds. Long-range planning is important. You need to think in the long term."
