We have many great actors and celebrities who have rocked the world even before the invention of technology in to their respective fields.

Forbes pays tribune to these personalities every year by listing the most earning but dead celebrities. Every time I look at those figures, I feel bad. God has given them everything money, fame but not life. This list often raises some spirit in us saying that having life is more important than money and fame. But there are so many people who say that living a small celebrity life is very great compared to living a big but ordinary life.

Elvis Presley, the king of Rock and roll is the famous and topper of the list who earned $52 million without lifting a finger. Then the list follows with Justin Timberlake with $44 million, Madonna $40 million.

It is estimated that only 13 of the top personalities in the list earned as much as $194 million combined in last 12 months. Now it is our dilemma whether to believe or not that we are really in economic crisis.
