Michael is KING OF POP!
Posted by Billy Joe on Saturday, 03.24.07 @ 22:25pm
His songs have been covered (Remember Smooth Criminal?) and he's done a lot. He deserves his spot in the hall.

Am I the only one who finds it funny that he was nominated by N Sync? Anyways, yeah, ignoring his personal life (Which I won't get into right now) he was basically the highest selling pop singer in history.

MICHAEL JACKSON | HALLS OF FAME
Posted by Roy on Thursday, 02.28.08 @ 12:33pm
Ok, it's becoming pretty clear that these Michael Jackson concerts in London were never ever going to happen. First there were delays because of rehearsals or something and now he's had a heart attack.
Posted by Carl on Thursday, 06.25.09 @ 15:08pm
Actually - he is permanently dead. The man was a month younger than me. That sux!
Posted by Dameon on Thursday, 06.25.09 @ 16:36pm
I'm not a fan either, but rest in peace.
Posted by Dude Man on Thursday, 06.25.09 @ 16:55pm
I liked some of his music, he might have been a messed up person but he could really sing and perform, I will give him that much.
Posted by Brian on Thursday, 06.25.09 @ 17:59pm
WOW...musically speaking, just an indescribable loss. I grew up listening to him & his brothers like a lot of others on this site...just an amazing talent. It's really too bad that his personal conflicts have tarnished his legacy, but music has a tendency to live on, which his will for some time.

thank you for the music and RIP Michael Jackson.

R.I.P. Michael Jackson

Just a ridiculous talent... He was to the 80's what the Beatles were to the 60's. RIP Michael. You left us great music.

WHat would we do without you Roy?

Rest In Peace, Michael. May you finally find peace, and be surrounded by people who are kinder to you than they were in this life.

Now it's 44/100 on Amazon.com for Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5.

I think people should be respectful of Micheal Jackson as a Amazing Performer, singer/songwriter and An Amazing Dancer.

galwaygirl... artists do need to reinvent themselves. That's part of evolving a sound and staying current. That is a good thing.

I haven't been on this site for about a week or so, so I'll pay my respects now by saying RIP MJ
Posted by Keebord on Tuesday, 06.30.09 @ 19:57pm
One thing that hasn't gone totally unnoticed (at least by me, anyway) in all of this is his dad...what a piece of work that guy is!!!!
Posted by Gitarzan on Tuesday, 06.30.09 @ 20:03pm
I haven't heard about his dad, and really don't care to right now. I'm just glad the custody battle for his children got decided so soon, for the sake of the children.
Posted by Philip on Tuesday, 06.30.09 @ 20:11pm
ohhhh...i still can't believe he's dead. anyway, RIP Michael.

Mike's father Joseph suspects Foul Play. He's not the only one who thinks that way.

Everybody knows he is the king of pop, but has anyone merged rock and pop together better than Michael??? Beat It with Van Halen, obviously, but also Black or White with Slash of GNR/Velvet Revolver/Slash's Snakepit on guitars... R.I.P.
Posted by Chris on Sunday, 11.15.09 @ 23:10pm
"Everybody knows he is the king of pop, but has anyone merged rock and pop together better than Michael???" I'll have to check out the Slash collaboration, but Prince>>>MJ's biggest hits. Just check out the Hits 1; no comparison. Smoking hot guitar playing from Prince to go with some great songs.

I'm not much of a Michael fan but I recognize his talent and he deserved his induction. I hope he's found peace.

Idol was a song written by Bernie Taupin and Elton John about Elvis Presley. It's on the Blue Moves album from 1976 by Elton John.

Even though MJ has done a lot in his life, but he is a POP vocalist, not a rock n roll or metal vocalist! Just because he did a collaberation with Eddie Van Halen doesn't mean he deserves to be in the ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME!
Posted by a REAL metalhead on Sunday, 02.5.12 @ 12:50pm
metal ain't part of rock either, you saying we should kick that out?

Why no urgency to release The Making of Thriller on DVD? Any legal problems? Royalty payments for all the actors? You would think something like this would have been put out on DVD already. You can find used VHS copies on ebay and amazon.
Posted by Roy on Sunday, 04.20.14 @ 20:11pm
Posted by Bill G. on Wednesday, 12.16.15 @ 13:03pm
I think they mean "records" as opposed to "copies". As it stands, Thriller's total sales should stand at 70 million at least. But I remember last year they had this plaque saying Thriller had sold a cumulative 100 million records or so... which makes better sense than 100 million copies.
