He's not the only dead celebrity still making bank. Elvis Presley's motorcycle jacket and pants sold for $41,600, while a Whitney Houston Grammy dress sold for $20,480 and a robe worn by Amy Winehouse in the music video for Rehab auctioned off for $34,375.

Madonna proved you don't have to be dead to be in demand though. A negligee she wore on her Blonde Ambition tour sold for $34,375 as well.

    You know, I never appreciated what a great artist and performer he was until after he died and my favorite radio station (which usually plays smooth) jazz started playing his records nonstop all afternoon. What an amazing performer.
