I never much cared for his later stuff, I preferred The Jackson 5. Thriller sales will likely take off again...
I really liked the Thriller period musically, but somehow I can't feel sad about it. Farrah Fawcett's brave fight with cancer deserves much more attention and respect. But no, a pop icon will get all the press even if he/she was a perverted pedophile. Let's not forget we can credit him for the wonderful crotch grab which is now the trademark of every street corner homey.
Parody Yes, Sad no. Guy was a creep. If you make enough money the american public will let you do anything. See you monkey boy.Farrah Fawcett this is a loss. She got better with age. jus sayin'
I've just been watching some of his hit videos. He really was an exceptional talent. I know how you feel JJ. I felt the same way the day John Lennon died. Didn't mean to be so gruff in my first post.
Michael was creepy but he was talented. Farrah was an idol of mine and let's not forget the classy Ed McMahon.
Doug---I personally didn't care for any of his stuff. Maybe a generational thing? I think you are right regards the Thriller.Mr. C & Punch---You know I am a fan of both of you, but I have to say, you have totally misread what I posted. I did not say I was a fan, nor did I say I am sad that he died, nor did I diminish in any way Fawcett's death. What I said was, it is sad that such potential went south. Nothing more. Don't put words in my mouth amigos, please. It's bad enough that I get flack from non-friends, but especially when I am guiltless.Peach---a news bulletin, nothing more. Farrah and Ed McMahon deserve everything you said.
Sorry JJ. Didn't mean to piss you off. It's just that when someone asks a question like will you remember where you were the day so 'n so died it's usually an indication that it's pretty important to you.But enough of that shit. The posts you and Punch threw at me last night had me in tears I laughed so hard. Thanks, I needed that.
The dude was not John Lennon, whose death I will always, like Kennedy and Kings remember where I was. MJ had his time in the sun and he's gone. I think I'll mourn more for the kids I never heard of who died yesterday for whatever reason.
JadedJ...it's ok you can come out of that closet and admit you liked his music and did some seat bopping whenever it came on the radio. ha ha ha ha haha ha ha
Mr C---Apology accepted, not sure it was necessary. Believe me...I DID NOT CARE FOR THE GUY, nor his music. I totally agree with you and Punch, and it would seem everyone who has commented thus far.For sure he had a difficult father and childhood, but at some point one has to assume responsibility for oneself and get off the "my parents fucked me up" bullshit.My problem is, I assume everyone knows when I say something like, will you remember, that I am making mocking the very idea. I need to work on that.Walking---with you on that one.The seat bopping was the result of too many legumes.Punch---come back! I didn't mean to piss you off, dude (I watched "Shane" the other night..."Shane, come back...I didn't mean it")
