With over three decades following his untimely passing, Bob Marley is listed at number five in Forbes' top-earning dead celebrities; edging out the likes of Marilyn Monroe, John Lennon, Albert Einstein and Bruce Lee.

According to Forbes, "The iconic Reggae star wasn't known for his capitalist tendencies while alive, but in death he's becoming quite the diversified businessman. Recent ventures include the Marley Beverage company (home to the "relaxation drink" known as Marley's Mellow Mood) and House of Marley (producer of eco-friendly audio and lifestyle products). Marley has sold more than 75 million albums in the past two decades."
