"Topping the list for the second year running is the king of rock 'n' roll, Elvis Presley (http://movies.msn.com/celebrities/celebrity/elvis-presley.1/). Without so much as lifting a finger, the Memphis Flash earned a whopping $52 million in the past year. That's more than some of the music industry's biggest living acts command. For example, Justin Timberlake (http://movies.msn.com/celebrities/celebrity/justin-timberlake.1/) pulled in $44 million last year, and Madonna (http://movies.msn.com/celebrities/celebrity/madonna/) earned $40 million.

Despite being dead for 31 years, Elvis Presley continues to draw a rising income, from $49 million last year to $52 million this year. Attendance and merchandise sales are soaring at Graceland. New licensing ventures, including Thomas Kinkaid art, slot machines and Martin guitars, are expanding the brand, and the new Elvis satellite radio show is adding to the already extensive royalties. The King is dead; long live the King."

Elvis is the man. I find it so crazy that he can still rake in the money.
