Bob Marley on Forbes List of Top Earning Deceased Celebrities

bob-marley-740In a replay of last year’s ranking, Jamaican reggae legend Bob Marley has placed fifth on Forbes magazine’s top earning dead celebrity 2014 list, making him the only Caribbean star to shine among a galaxy dominated by North American and British luminaries.

The enduring “One Love” singer is still earning steadily since his death from cancer at the age of 36 in 1981, with Forbes reporting bags and a line of fruit-flavoured drinks, as well as the familiar T-shirts bearing the late music icon’s name.

The “Redemption Song” star has also sold well over 75 million albums in the past two decades, and hauled in US$20 million year-to-date to secure fifth position on the 2014 rich list.

Like everyone else, Marley still has a way to go to catch up with first-placed Michael Jackson, who was 50-years-old when he passed away in 2009.
