I grew up listening to his music…. I liked it, but kinda out-grew it. BUT he IS the KING of POP. RIP M. Jackson.

Didn’t care for his music, his way of life, or his disgusting habits, but, at 50??? Hell, i’m 50, kind of makes you think.

You know….... one bad thing about this site (and probably the only one bad thing)...... when you post something, it is a reflection on you. A reflection of how intelligent you are, or it may a reflection of how intelligent you are not…...... And every time you post in the future, all the members see your handle and remember what you’ve posted in the past…....

We’re talking about the LAST great music icon of our time passing away. Think about it. THE LAST.

His personal life aside, I was a huge fan. There will never be another artist like him. His life was a tragedy and unfortunately he will be remembered for all the wrong reasons.

thats true , but we havent even seen the NEXT !
im sorry that michael didnt have the kind of normal life that he maybe wanted .
all the latter stuff was maybe a torchered soul ?
he did affect a world of people .
now all the scrambling for his money will start .
r.i.p. michael .

David, the way they talk on the news, he didn’t have any money. Imagine, have the best selling album of all time….. and have no money. Sad.

That’s because everyone was always after it, mostly for the wrong reasons. When you get to the top like he did everyone is out to get you, in every way possible. His life was so screwed from the torment and torture of society that he’s probably a lot happier now. RIP

It’s unfortunate Jackson leaves a mixed and varied life and career; and ultimately what will be an almost empty obituary. Certainly a missed golden opportunity as a positive influence.

Thank goodness for the genuine music icons, such as Antonio Benedetto; Yo-Yo Ma; the countless number of country musicians and scores of others who have quietly, though signifigantly, contributed as a shining, positive influence.

With the release of the Thriller album Jackson was at the top of his game. Have always felt he should have stayed with and have as his counsel and oversee his business and music career one of the real reasons for the album’s runaway mega success…musician, producer, the great Quincy Jones.

Have your say...
