Elvis may have "left the building", but he is still the king! He earned an estimated $49 million in the past 12 months and has reclaimed the No. 1 spot on Forbes.com's list of Top-Earning Dead Celebrities.

The balance of the Top Ten are -

· John Lennon ($44 million)
· 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)

Missing from the list is Broadway composer Richard Rodgers and colleagues, who I do believe had been in the top ten in the past. I am continually surprised to see Marilyn Monroe up there. And Albert Einstein at $18 Million?
