    The Creator of Pop


    Go to fullsize image Michael Jackson unquestionably filled all the gaps and thensome if anyone wants to know what the 1980's were like in America.

    For the music industry, there was no such thing as " Pop " as a musical genre until Michael Jackson.  You had Country, Western, Rock, Soul, R&B, Jazz and Classical

    Most black artists were especially lumped into either R&B, Soul and Jazz. 

    Before there was rap music, there was Michael Jackson.   

    Before there were dancing boy groups, there was Michael Jackson. 

    Before there was Madonna and any other female artist that sung, danced, and used a mouth piece microphone, Michael Jackson pioneered it all. 

    No one outsold him, or out performed him since and he's arguably the best of all those who came before him.  ( Elvis, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones ) 

    A man who can even outdance Fred Astaire on a stage deserves top billing.

    One of the greatest entertainers of the 20th century, without doubt, but without Berry Gordy and Quincy Jones, he's Shaun Cassidy with a 'fro.

    I got this feeling Elvis met Jacko at the Pearly Gate with brass knuckles and said, "I've been waitin' for you freakboy.  Thank you very much"

    Elvis with his habitual drug use and his penchant for hitting women, I think Michael is an easy target. Beat up the weak. Is this type of welcome typical of the "pearly gates"? Do you have to fight your way in?

    I think you idiots are pathetic if the only thing you seem to want to cling onto was his supposed child molestation accusations. 

    Until you're convicted in a court of law, you're innocent until proven so.

    Just hope no one accuses you of anything,  it'd be sad if it sticks to your forehead as long as you want it sticking to Michael's.

    Hey - Jamie Fox said "Micheal Jackson was a black man that the back community shared with the world and that he was responsible for giving us Barak Obama".

    Gee - I liked Micheal Jackson up to now!

    In the end - Jackson was just another junkie!

    Though tragic - a very common tale......

    Nah, I am just another junkie.  Elvis, Jimi, Janis, Jim and Jackson were genius junkies.

    The real heros however, are folks like Frank Zappa, who never gave into the temptation, and Joe Walsh and anyone else (hello) who has overcome it

    I hear you Greg-

    I have admiration for guys like  Keith Richards, Steve Tyler, Joe Perry who were outrageous junkies but who were able to kick it and stay sober.

    The tragedy with Jackson Im sure we will learn in years to come was there were too many hangers on who depended on his inability to get clean including his own father . Even now Im hoping people are watching closely as the race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are the "Spokes People" for Micheal Jackson. Where were you Jesse and Al in the months leading up to Jacksons death? What gravy train were you you mooching off of this time last year? The Obama Campaign?
