    Very much agreed. I found the videos and showmanship to be amazing, such a shame he won't be playing live anymore He in a way did things like Queen did, he pushed the technology for the videos etc All good stuff and a good thing to do

    We won't agree on the person, but the Music was great. To anyone born in the 70's and 80's, part of our cultural DNA has gone.

    Him and Jackson where very good friends...

    Hence why he was commenting on it..

    I'm getting mixed reports now as to wether he's died or not- although the papers at the station all seemed pretty sure....

    i think that's maybe because a lot of people thought of jackson as this peter pan figure - i think he himself believed that......but i've always thought a comparitively early end for someone so troubled was almost inevitable.

    I think it would have been harder to imagine jackson at 60 or 65, and the state he would have been in by then.

    should I bin my concert tickets, or will I get me money back?

    at least Jacko will still be bringing joy in to young boys lives, I've heard he is to be melted down and made into action figures.

    A sad day. Regardless of what you think of him personally, he was an amazing musician and showman. RIP Jacko.

    Talented musician? Yep. Wierdo? For sure. Worthy of worldwide grief? Nah, not so much.

    He's dead, just get over it!
