RIP Michael Jackson

I didn't see one up, so decided to mention it. Seems a lot of deaths have been occurring lately; David Carridine, Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, and now Michael Jackson. Very sad we're losing so many people.

MJ after being found unconscious and was in a coma, passed away at the age of 50 this afternoon.

Just like the others mentioned he will be missed.

Re: RIP Michael Jackson

Re: RIP Michael Jackson

I can't believe he's dead. I remember growing up listening to his music. And he was only 50 when he died. RIP Michael Jackson. Regardless of whatever he had done, he was a very talented artist.

Re: RIP Michael Jackson

Fifty years old and dying of a massive heart attack, according to the reports I've seen. This is so sad. Michael strikes me as a kid who never had a chance to be a kid, never had a chance to grow up anywhere close to normally. What a sad, sad life!

I feel bad over the passing of Ed and Farrah, but the blow was softened, sorta, because of those two were already sick and suffering, but Micheal's death is just a 100% shocking since it came from out of nowhere which is why I made a thread for him.

I feel sorry for the guy in general because of how his life turned out. I definitely agree with Purp...he definitely wasn't allowed to grow up normally.

Exactly. While the other deaths are horrible as well, this one is going to get the most attention. It is so shocking because no one expected it. In addition, Michael Jackson is a very controversial person so the media will be obsessing over him even more.

Re: RIP Michael Jackson

.... but he has LOTS of very loyal fans. I am not among them, but I certainly remember some of his stuff with a lot of nostalgia and fondness.

Many people will e shocked and saddened.

As far as I am aware, he made the best selling album ever. And with the way music sales are going now, he'll probably keep the record for the foreseeable future.....

Amazing voice.... unbelievable dance moves.

Very sad life story.

Re: RIP Michael Jackson

This is hard to imagine, but it's true. He did make some good music in his life. He will be missed.

I was exposed to Michael Jackson music as early as 1982...granted, I was born in 1981. lol So I've been listening to Michael songs and watching his videos for a long time. One of my earliest memories, is my watching The Making of Thriller. My dad had the Beta tape of it, which is probably why, as a kid, I was never scared of things like monsters because I knew they were costumes and make-up.

I guess you could call me a semi-fan since my listening started to fade round about the mid-90s, but everything before then, I still watch or listen to to this day. I can't go a week without listening to at least one song by him.

Best concert, that I've seen [not in person lol] anyway, is his Bad Tour he did in Yokohama, Japan back in 1987. Best solo album, not compilations or anything like that, imo, was Bad. The songs meshed well together. Off the Wall would be next for me, then Thriller, then Dangerous.

Yea it is purp. So, so sad. And like you said, he never even had a chance to be a kid -- or even grow up normally.

Re: RIP Michael Jackson

Just like you, SSJ, I was exposed to Michael's music at a very young age. I have his album Bad on CD and vinyl . One of my earliest memories of his music is my sister, less than a year old, falling asleep next to the speakers playing the album.

Re: RIP Michael Jackson

I just can't believe he's dead. I really can't. It seems so utterly surreal, almost like I'll wake up tomorrow and he'll still be there.

I was looking at a picture of him just this morning...

Me too -- I grew up listening to a lot of his music. The music world has a big void in it now with his passing, may he rest in peace.

That's pretty much how I feel about it too.

And the same thing with Farrah's passing as well.

I am so shocked at this news! I hope the media leave his family to mourn in peace.

Yea I certainly hope that they let them do that. But with the way things are these days, I sadly doubt that they'll even let them have that.

Not likely.

The L.A. Times is already reporting on how he was about $400 million in debt at the time of his death.

Wow, Pox -- that's really swift of them to do that . They don't even let the guy (or his family) have a minute's peace.
