Elvis Making Millions from Beyond the Grave

Published: 2005-11-01
Though Elvis has been dead for 28 years, he still hasn't stopped raking in the cash.

According to Forbes magazine, the king of rock and roll is the highest grossing person who is no longer alive. Elvis's estate continues to make more than most living people, taking in $45 million (US) this past year.

With albums like 2002's Elvis 30 #1 Hits hitting number one on the Billboard charts, it's not difficult to see why the musical icon is still making millions and surpassing all of today's living musicians.

Beatle great John Lennon also makes the list of top deceased earners, taking in $22 million (US) since his death in 1980.

Other top earners who are no longer with us include Peanuts creator Charles Schultz and Artist Andy Warhol. One has to wonder what is being done with all the cash, lets hope for charity.
