Elvis On Top, Where He Belongs

Something for Greil Marcus to add to Dead Elvis, should he ever update the book: according to Forbes magazine, Elvis is back on top of the list of richest dead celebrities, generating $49 million in income the past year.
The rest of the Top Ten?

John Lennon ranks second with earnings of $44 million, followed by Charles M. Schulz ($35 million), George Harrison ($22 million), Albert Einstein ($18 million), Andy Warhol ($15 million), Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss) ($13 million), Tupac Shakur ($9 million), Marilyn Monroe ($7 million), Steve McQueen ($6 million), James Brown ($5 million), Bob Marley ($4 million) and James Dean ($3.5 million).

Albert Einstein?
