Forbes: The Top Earning Dead Celebrities 2013

No. 2: Elvis Presley

$55 million

Singer, actor

Died: August 16, 1977

Age: 42

Cause: Heart Attack

The King of Rock n’ Roll may have taken a back seat to the King of Pop, but he’s still earning steadily thanks to his eternally popular image and his famous home, Graceland. That was enough to convince billionaire Leon Black and his firm, Apollo Global Management, to buy CKX, the parent company of American Idol and the estates of both Elvis and Muhammad Ali, for $509 million in 2011.
