2015 Earnings: $21 million

Reggae superstar Bob Marley died in 1981, and over 30 years later, is still routinely earning money with the Marley Beverage company, House of Marley (selling eco-friendly headphones, audio systems and accessories) and, of course, his music, with 75 million total albums sold and the posthumous Wailers compilation album Legend reaching the Billboard Top 10 in 2014.

    Because he did so many things through his life and people still to this day buy his music half the children in the state might not even know who Elvis is.

    I can’t understand why a dead Michael Jackson earned more than deceased Elvis Presley or John Lennon!
