  • Your opinion, please!  Will the death (an media aftermath) of Michael Jackson be as big as when Elvis died?

  • Ah - thought this was going to be a poll.  Why dont you add a poll to this post?

  • Wondering how your going to determine who's aftermath is "biggger". Micheal Jacksons death will reach more people, the computer does that... and there are so many more media outlets than what Elvis's death had had.

    Are you asking who was more loved... Elvis or Michael? If so... i'll say Elvis was here in the United States. But i'm sure Michael Jackson reached many more people around the world.

    Michael Jackson's death will be a zoo for many months to come, thats for sure!
    Will millions flock to "Neverland ranch" on the anniversary of Michael's death, like millions have done for almost 32 years at Graceland on August 16th... i think not.

  • Hiya Doc,

    That's a good question....and i don't think there is a person who has not wondered the same thing. If a poll was taken as to how many people had this thought..i think it would far out weigh the actuality of Michael Jacksons death having the sensationalism that Elvis' death did.

    I don't think that here in the United States Michael Jackson will be as decorated as he will be in other countries. He lost his luster among the American people. What we once thought of as a mega superstar with talent unmatched...turned to a singer with too much plastic surgery and scandals with boys. This new image tarnished the Michael Jackson that we once knew.

    Of course there will be the immediate flood of press and media attention. But as the dust starts to settle so will the American public.

    I choose to remember him when he was at the top of his game. His music and his dancing put him in a class of his own.

    Funny how life works...in life some are ridiculed...in death they become a legend.

  • im not a big fan of either jackson (if u dont count the jackson 5 years) or elvis. michel probably be gonna be remembered for all the wierd stuff he did... and then some music. personally i dont think he should be remembered as "an elvis". for me, he was a wierd dude who made some really great tunes, stopping after the record BAD. thats... kinda all.

  • I am a huge ELVIS fan, yet I was only 10 when he passed away so it was not as big for me as just the other day when Micheal died.  I grew up with THRILLER and BAD, as mainstays on my stereo. I followed his ups and downs as a human being, and his successes, and mistakes. I couldn't do that with Elvis, as I was just to young.  I think Elvis will still be remembered kinder than Micheal and his mistakes, but for me, mistakes or not , his death will always be bigger for me, as he was such a part of my lifetime, as Elvis was not.  It all has to do with my age and the fact it became part of my history when he died. Older folks remember where they were when Elvis died, I can't. Yet I will always remember where I was when I heard Micheal was gone.

  • I personally think Michael Jackson's death will never be as big as the death of Elvis. Not saying that Michael Jackson wasn't a great musical genius just in my opinion he wasn't as big as Elvis. Being from the south in the US of course I was a huge Elvis fan and the story of his rags to riches life and the kindness he showed to even perfect strangers left many in awe of him. I also was a huge Michael fan and although he is gone we will always have his great music.

  • I personally think he was awesome, the man never had a childhood so thats why he was around children all the time, he was nothing except a child stuck in a mans body, he was awesome, weird yes but fantastic music and could he dance....I honestly won't believe he's passed unless they show a body, it all just doesn't fit, and his family, if my sibling just passed I wouldn't be able to hold back the tears, something just doesn't seem right to me.....I just wonder if there going to let the public view any of the funeral.....

  • Elvis will remain "King" to the era and genre that he touched and graced with his music. The same would be said about Michael Jackson. However if you take into consideration and compare the two's era and genre, Michael would have a much larger following...literally able to touch the world and broke the genre barriers, winning awards not only in R&B and pop but also in Rock. Elvis, still considered King of rock, may have crossed over to the country genre (have to check that one).

    Michael brought more than just music to the table. He innovated and influenced the music industry we know today. Whether it be in music style, image, video, and dance. Every thing we see or listen to in this industry, the influence of Michael, the DNA of his talents, can always be found in one form or another. Whether you were a fan of Michael or not, whether you can admit it or not (if not your just in denial..LOL)..but with his death...you were curious, interested and tuned in to see and understand what happen. Listenening to what others had to say. Many of which, came along with tribute videos of this legendary icon. Honestly who can compare? Kenye..sorry but u don't even come close.

    Well said soda, I couldn't agree more. I liked them both and in their own way they were both musical geniuses. Both my husband and I have always been fans of Michael and we sat up almost all night on Saturday and watched all of his great videos. He surely will be missed.




  • I agree Soda....very well said...... smiley
