Oh I dunno, Love Lockdown and Gold Digger were pretty good songs.

Wouldn't that mean you are offended by yourself and every other member of POOP?

Cool just not sure how Jimi got lumped into that bunch.

Ill be the last guy to tell you jackson didnt have his issues but bottom line he was an easy target. That last time allegations actually went to a criminal court and he was acquitted helped paint the picture. Especially since it was on the heels of Bashirs hack documentary.

All that nonsense aside the guy spent 40 years of his life in the industry entertaining, and inspiring millions.

The Smooth criminal video alone is a lasting testament to what is really his genius. The choreography, lyrics music everything is just simply put awe inspiring.

Jackson agreed to play 10 shows in the UK and before he knew it the number of shows was 50. He was dead a few weeks later.

All so tragic.

Perhaps my favorite is Dirty Dianna.

Anyway--Keep up the good work,

Also, in the interest of full disclosure, I was never a fan when he was alive but to disregard what he achieved and has done as a whole for pop music whould't be underplayed.

For a real treat check out the original Jackson 5 stuff. -Never can say goodbye. Just sheer brilliance and beauty we don't get today.

OK , I should have put some content in perspective here, but aside from that I think you guys ran the gamut, IMO MJ was, is & will always be recognized as the ARTIST who did what no other artist did before him, in that He Combined the Audio Visual Media, with respect to Music Videos, in a way the No artist before him had the VISION to accomplish.

For that reason alone he stands as one of the Fine Artists of the genre, along with Miles Davis, James Brown & Jimi Hendrix, In my opinion, ALL of who were Innovators in the Music Arts.

The personal BS means Nothing in respect to his actual accomplishments...of that there can be NO DEBATE.

The Man was a Master at his Art.
