Yes, I have seen the Jacksons live in concert. You know how you remember certain things about shows....

The concert I saw was at BC Place in Vancouver, 60,000 seat stadium and it was sold out. The opening act was....wait for it.

still waiting...

a juggler - yes, some guy juggling for 60,000 paying customers.

Michael Jackson can sing, dance, and has written some great songs but sadly I don't music historians will be able to focus on that. Instead I think he is going to be remembered less favourably due to the plastic surgeries and child abuse allegations.

I like his songs and I think he`s been very influential. I only have Thriller though, but I want to buy his Best of. I used to be a huge fan when I was about 5-6 years old. I had a MJ sweatshirt and I was trying to learn how to moonwalk.

I will admit that I was in the MJ fan club when I was in Elem school.

I dont really like Jackson now- he is a little wierd but I can say that he is very good musically, or was, he hasnt had the same staying around power as say Madonna or Prince, but I think that because he was just so astronomically massive in the 80s that he has many, many die hard fans still lingering around. I can remember 80s Jackson very well, when I was about 6 years old Beat It was one of my fave songs and I can remember the impact musically that the whole Thriller album had........
I liked some of his stuff off Bad- man in the mirror was nice and I liked the song that he did called 'Leave me alone' around that time- it had an awesome film clip..........but I think that from then on he just progressively become wierder or eccentric, who knows. Part of me however does think that he didnt molest those boys, or rather he saw that what he was doing as not wrong and if that is the case than maybe he is actually just not very well. I feel for his kids the most, seriously, could you handle it if Jacko were your Father????????

to be honest, MJ has given us decent pop music

my first english CD was "blood on the dance floor" which is kind-of okay

i like the earth song too

I'm still a fan of the music. Maybe not so much the recent stuff but nevertheless I started out when I was young. Dangerous was a great record to listen to in high school whilst drowning out the world.

Never saw him live. Never really had the chance. Don't know if I would now.

Pete Townsedn is/was a fan of MJ back when Thriller came out. Its amazing to think that MJ and Prince were "rivals" and "superstars" but now usurped by hip hop and such...

Is there any way for doctors to fix Michael's face?
