The Top Earning Dead Musicians In 2013 are:

  1. Jenni Rivera ($7 million)
  2. John Lennon ($12 million)
  3. Bob Marley ($18 million)
  4. Elvis Presley ($55 million)
  5. Michael Jackson ($160 million)
    Forbes figures are based on pretax earnings from October 1st, 2012 through October 1st, 2013. Management and legal expenses were not deducted, and estimates are based on information provided by lawyers, agents and others along with data from Nielsen SoundScan, the RIAA and Pollstar.
