I think it's safe to say they have passed the test of time 20 years later..
Jackson's prime was in the 80's and his music is still played on the radio today.

As I said, his legendary status was pretty much a settled matter before he screwed up his life. Mccartney and plenty of other pretty big names in music have payed him massive repects

My age is clearly listed under my avatar and I'm older than reed.

I never said anything about his music, I said he is not "the man". I would never refer to that sad little man as "the man." He had some great music (not really my style) and I respect that but I won't simply overlook all of the child molestation accusations because he made good music.

I think it is rather obvious that by "Mike is the Man" Reedickyluss was referring to his status as a musician and entertainer, especially considering the entire subject of the thread. Note that everyone else's earlier objections had to do with his music.

I guess Reed is younger than you but he does have historical perspective. He dosen't just have an out of context Pavlovian response to the name "Michael Jackson", and scream "accusations of molestation", simply because that is all he is old enough to personally remember from the media coverage of his time.

So you make the assumption that reed has historical prospective by him saying "mj is the man..." Okay....

If he had said "Mike WAS the man" I would have no objection. Why are you still accusing me of not realizing that he had a huge impact on music when I said just that in my last post? I didn't argue that his music was insignificant. I simply objected to reed calling him "the man" considering what he has become. I'm sorry if I insulted your childhood idle, maybe you're older than I and had more fond memories of MJ than I did. When I was a young child, none of that had happened yet but when it did it was really creepy seeing as though I was still quite young. I will admit, I don't have a favorable opinion of Michael Jackson but I recognize his impact on music. You might be right about me having a Pavlovian response to his name. I probably did take reed's comment out of context as well.
