Don Amott is a Swedish guitarist with a net worth of approximately $1 million to $5 million. His music is heavily influenced by the rock band Metallica and James Hetfield. He began playing guitar as a teenager and began to learn to play by copying heavy metal and hardcore punk records. As a teenager, Amott found his inspiration in guitar icons such as Tony Iommi, Michael Schenker, Kerry King, and Ritchie Blackmore, and he soon began recording his own music. In 1988, he co-founded the death metal band Carnage with singer Johan Liiva, and the two bands released two widely traded cassette demos.
The Don Amott group was established in 1963 by Don Amott senior. The company is still family owned and operated. Don Amott junior joined the company after leaving school and took over when his father died in 1975. In the 60s, Don Amott founded the Don Amott Parks division, which started out as a small residential site in Burton-Upon-Trent, a static holiday park in the Alton’s Towers theme park, and a holiday park in Tenby, South Wales.
