Kurt Cobain is bigger than Elvis
According to a list compiled by Forbes, at $50 million, Kurt Cobain was the top-earning dead celebrity for the period October 2005-October 2006. Courtney Love selling a 25% stake in the Nirvana publishing rights earlier this year is the main reason for Cobain's top placement on the Forbes list. This was Cobain's first time on the list in its six years of publication - a list usually topped by Elvis Presley. Story courtesy of Reuters. Read more here. Thanks to everyone who sent in the story.
