    Elvis, the Beatles, Rolling Stones, and Bob Dylan will influence musicians long after Michael Jackson's catalog is relegated to oldies stations. Sure, he sold a lot of records and was a good entertainer before he got too weird. The Motown 25th performance was electric. However, I just don't see him as being an influential musician. Like Elvis, though, he was a wasted talent.

    Ronnie Schreiber : However, I just don’t see him as being an influential musician. His voice made him a great musician. But I kinda agree: he had the chops, but MJ's music owes much gratitude to his connection with Quincy Jones. I didn't care for MJ's stuff after "Bad", which was when QJ made his exit.

    Seriously, name ONE childhood star that grew up to be normal. I can’t think of any! [s]Dana Plato?[/s] Sorry. Michael was a freak no doubt, but he was a cultural icon, had talent matched by noone, and was loved the world over. He will be missed, even if only for what he once was, and not what he had become.
