Not even death can end the commercial success of some celebrities who continue making money after their passing. You can’t stop the music, even when its creator has shuffled off this mortal coil. Physical sales still continue long after their demise. That sort of consumption offers the departed a second career from beyond the grave. All figures are pre-tax; fees for agents, managers and lawyers (generally 10%, 15% and 5%, respectively) are not deducted.
Here are the top 10 highest paid dead celebrities.
