Elvis: Top-Earning Dead Celebrity

According to Forbes, Elvis Presley has replaced Kurt Cobain at the top of the list of Top-Earning Dead Celebrities with an estimated $49 million income. Cobain’s 2006 debut at number one came after Courtney Love sold part of his catalog for a reported $50 million, but the Nirvana frontman didn’t make the cut this year. Other musicians on the list include John Lennon in second place ($44 million), George Harrison at number four ($22 million), Tupac Shakur at eight ($9 million), James Brown at number eleven ($5 million) and Bob Marley right behind him ($4 million).
