    A sad loss of talent but I’m not sure I can bear the days and days of media fan fare and 'Last day' documentaries.
    Did you see the paparazzi this morning on the news, security asked if they would go away for a few hours and leave the family in peace yet they just kept on snapping. They really need shooting sometimes.

    I'm afraid I never liked his music, I never really liked the person either.

    Oh dear, he's dead, life goes on. I don't envy the coroner, unpicking that mangled mess of a body. I'd say he punched his own card a few years back.

    No, I'm not wrong. It's an opinion. I thought they were s***. Jacko obviously didn't (or maybe he did but he just tried to make a quick buck out of them ). You too, are allowed your opinion.

    Well I guess we will ever know the real Jackson seems as though he has been in the media since a child and never really had chance to grow up in a relatively normal lifestyle.

    It's peoples opinions for his music and lifestyle, but it's still a sad day for his friends and family and I'm sure he'll be missed by many. Personally I like his early music, and despite everything else that went on towards the end of his life, I'll still enjoy listening to his music time and time again.

    I had to wait WEEKS before I heard my first Heath Ledger joke last year, and a fair few days before my first Jeremy Beadle one.

    I'm confident a Michael Jackson joke will arrive before Monday.

    I've heard two already, but not willing to repeat them myself on a public forum.

    Get Back, Here Comes The Sun, Hey Bulldog, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Day In The Life, Got To Get You Into My Life, You've Got To Hide Your Love Away, I'll Follow The Sun, Two Of Us

    Vs

    Time is On My Side, Paint It Black, She's A Rainbow, Sympathy For The Devil, Start Me Up, Blue Turns To Grey, Ruby Tuesday, Give Me Shelter

    I'd say they where both pretty good and had their moments. Wouldn't necessarily say one was better than the other. The Beatles just had the biggest influence on future generations of pop/rock music.
