  1. Maybe more people would see Jimmy since its been so long? If him and RP were touring at the same time and I could only afford to see 1.. I know who I'd pick...
  2. Anyone who would take those comments LITERALLY is a moron. And I'm not sure if the original poster was someone who even posted in the other thread. Could be wrong, though.
  3. I agree about Joe Jackson. I saw the interview too and just couldn't believe it... its no surprise that MJ got so messed up!
  4. Fine, people who want to continue to bash someone who isn't even buried yet, go ahead and do so. It just doesn't look like there's very many of you, is all.
  5. I think you could name almost any Jackson song next to one of those! But speaking of generational biases, I'm certainly not without. However- I'm not even an MJ fan and my whole life, ever since I can remember, I have known Michael Jackson and his music. I can't say that about Led Zeppelin or the Stones, who are actually a couple of my favourite bands. Yes I might be biased because of my young age- but surely that must say something about how big MJ was. All of the songs you listed, I think can be matched at least in terms of popularity by his songs. At least that's just what I think. It could just be that I wasn't around for Stairway, and Imagine, and Satisfaction to be released.... but I wasn't around for Thriller either! Yet I remember all those songs and videos being played a lot my whole life.
  6. I was one of those people who said 'go make your own thread' and didn't literally expect some one to do it, although I'm not sure why, knowing the kind that hang around here. Our point was that the negative comments about MJ were totally unnecessary at this time--not just in that thread, but in general. But clearly the obviousness of this is lost on some people who have no respect or tact... It obviously takes a low type of person to create this kind of thread, and its a disrespectful thing to do. If the OP has the right to post it, I don't see why others such as myself don't have the right to object to it.
  7. Newly 19. Trust me that is a good thing in my country.
  8. That's what I was thinking when I was out Friday (or Sat.? Can't remember ) night- sitting on a patio in downtown Toronto at an R&B club that was pretty busy, but when the band started playing an MJ medley, a whole crowd of people just came outta nowhere! And just stood around together in the street, grooving. It was neat!
  9. Hate to say it but I don't really like their version! Its too fast I think. I think because I love that song and love Otis too much: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sncaXGVvROo But I love this version by Colin James.... everyone must hear it IMO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFDd3Wm4suA
  10. I like the early Zep, too. I agree with you about his voice in the middle years. Nothing beats those early years!
  11. You'd think so, wouldn't you! I think there's some people out there who haven't, though.
  12. Yeah and its really cool to see people coming together in a positive way, to remember MJ. I hope its Thriller and Billy Jean and all his other great accomplishments that people ultimately remember him by!
  13. Oh, cool stuff, thanks Sam. I wish they had more Zep stuff there. I'm pretty sure those sticks are the only things they have...?
  14. He has no other option. Anyway I can't believe this is going on in this thread. Its so disrespectful. As I think Ev suggested earlier, those who want to criticize MJ should start their own thread.
  15. You're an idiot. Here are the facts: a music legend (yes, legend) has died. He died tragically. His music meant a lot to a lot of people. There are no rose coloured glasses. Its a tragedy the way he died, and what happened to his life. He was a child star, an amazing talent, but got fucked up at a young age and never recovered. How anyone can still criticize him barely 24 hours after he has died is beyond me. I wouldn't even call myself a huge fan of his but I am deeply saddened at the way things turned out for this person- who is a HUMAN BEING, did some of you forget that? Apparently so.
  16. Well see Kneb's post above! Besides, is this the appropriate time to be shitting on Michael? Let the man rest in peace, for fucks sake. Honestly, what is wrong with some of you people?? And spats- you can't even do so much as talk to a girl, let alone have the greatest selling album of all time.
