Elvis was the predocessor to jacko in terms of the king

Jackson was about to a 50 night stint of concerts that sold out in minutes, he's still one of the biggest names in music even if he has been gone for the last 8 years or so

You accused him of committing suicide with no basis other than a comparison to Bono. To make this about Bono is either selfish or stupid, and either way is a useless, irrelevant comment.

This is worse than "I hope Bono's OK" when Cory Lidle died. "He did not have the mental strength of Bono?" Come on!

I'm not trying to be xenophobic, but I think the guy is still wrong. It can apply to the leader of any nation, provided that the guy isn't some insane tyrant.

I apologize for my comments earlier in the thread, guys - this really wasn't an appropriate time or place for them. Gotta make sure to think a bit longer before I post in the future.


yeah i could've posted some jokes and whatnot, but i decided not too out of respect for everyone else's feelings.

michael jackson, Tickets, Not Restricted, 2009 items at low prices on eBay.co.uk

Adjust to "newly listed" and you will see a few people have listed their tickets... i hope they are auto-relists.

My childhood is now, officially, 100% dead. Unbelievable. I am heartbroken. This is like John Lennon or Elvis dying, if not (obviously!) exactly the same. Wow. Horrible. Wow...

M J very well may have been on the cusp of a huge comeback with his sold out live shows

that will be the obit, I am sure.
That's true.

I had heard that MJ was recording material in Bahrain about a year or so ago. Who knows?

I have such mixed feelings. Insanely talented. He was my first pop idol crush. I even had my grandma knit me a yellow sweater vest because he wore one in a poster I had of him (go easy on me - I was, like, 11).

I remember that poster.

He had such a sad, horrible, tragic life. So sad to see such a great talent going down like this. I feel so sorry for his fans, family, kids. Man, this is really surreal.

Awesome - he was wearing a white shirt and white pants, and had the yellow vest. I had it on the wall next to my bed.

It's so scary, you know? He is the same age as my parents and grew up in the same neighborhood (Gary, IN). It's just...wow. I'm really heartbroken over this. Man in the Mirror is my favorite song of his, and that Free Willy song was really awesome.

Then, of course, there was this gem.
YouTube - Michael Jackson's Moonwalker (Sega Genesis)


RIP.
