Whether you’re their number one fan or not particularly interested, it always comes as a blow when you find out the news of a celebrity’s passing. I remember exactly where I was when I found out the news of Michael Jackson’s passing away (on a boat in Portugal: it was a family holiday, not a snippet into my luxurious lifestyle, unfortunately). But in a cruel twist of fate, it turns out that most celebrities earn a whole lot more cash after their death.

Warning: the following includes mention of some awesome pioneers of recent decades and may induce tears.

70. Hank Williams: Net worth today $100, 000

Hank was an American singer-songwriter and musician most notable for his contribution to country and western music. He was sadly taken in 1953 due to heart failure.

69. Michael Hutchence: Net worth today $1 million

The Australian founder of the rock band INXS passed in 1997 when he tragically took his own life by hanging.
