Cobain tops dead earners

Kurt Cobain is officially the largest earning dead person. The former Nirvana man has come top of the poll of top deceased earners. Between October 2005 and October this year, he has earned $50 million, much of which came from the sale of 25% of the band’s catalogue to PrimeWave.

This has meant that Elvis, who is normally top of the poll, is 2nd, with a figure of $42 million.
