Gone But Not Forgotten: Michael Jackson Makes Bank

     Michael Jackson ranks third on Forbes list of highest earning dead celebrities - or delebs as they call them.  Jackson raked in $90 million thanks to a strong showing at the box office for This Is It as well as strong music sales.  Jackson was listed right about last year's highest earning deleb, Elvis Presley, who made $55 million.

     The top earner was fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent followed by Rogers & Hammerstein.  Other musicians in the top 13 list (a Forbes tradition) include John Lennon at No. 7 with $15 million and Jimmy Hendrix at No. 12 with $8 million.
