Michael is a great artist and ahs some of the catchiest and best pop music ever made. He was also an amazing showman and dancer. Michael had a warmth and kindness of heart that would behumble anyone. He did not deserve the treatment he got from the media and evil people. My 2nd favourite after Prince.

I don't think his catalog is as strong overall as some contemporaries (Stevie being one that comes to mind) but he is the King of Pop for a reason. I didn't realize what a genius he was until I watched a bit of This is It. The scenes of him working with his band were incredible. The guy really knew music and might be the finest dancer I've ever seen.

Of course I remember the moment I heard he had died.

@Jonathanai It's untrue that he cant play any instrument. For example you can hear him playing percussion, drums and guitar on the song "Morphine".

He made some great music and was ahead of his time. Off The Wall & Thriller were his best,I find Bad dissapointing though the album Dangerous is pretty good.

Not my taste. However, you cannot put into words the influence he has had on the music industry. Some classic albums, again, not my favourites but definitely worth praising.
Musically brilliant, but the man himself, was nothing short of a crank though.
