Michael Jackson has been rushed to hospital and may soon breath his last.

They say you shouldn't speak ill of the dead so why not take this opportunity to say what you think about him before it's too late?

What do you think about Wacko Jacko? Rock Royalty or Prince of Paedophilia?

He's both, probably. Good, entertaining music. I don't think anyone can deny that. But there is these allegations and the way he acts with his children... I don't know what to think of it. After that hanging-out-the-balcony incident, I don't know why Children's Aid didn't get his children away from him, ASAP. Only returned following an extensive psyche exam.

Well, it should be noted that TMZ's report is unconfirmed.

On a lighter note, the ad on top of this exact thread was about getting Michael Jackson songs :).

Wow. Didn't see that coming, I was just quoting him on a thread on this site the other day.

I must admit I feel quite a sense of loss, more than for Princess Di, but less than for James Brown.

I really rate some of his music, well the Motown stuff and the albums with Quincy Jones anyway, (Off the Wall, Thriller), I'll be digging out some of those records tomorrow night, most of his later stuff is crap though.

He'd clearly been f*cked up in the head for along time now. I hope he wasn't a kiddie fiddler although I must admit there's a fair chance he was. I remain agnostic on that one.

Lennon had a few loose screws and was nearly as eccentric as Micheal, but both of their deaths will be remembered by the base of enormous influence they have had on modern music. Something was definitely wrong with him (regardless of the child molestation allegations) but no one can deny the significance his death brings. I'll be revisiting a few rusty albums tonight, mourning through the music.

On a side note, today seems to be the iconic triplets in a teacup as far as celebrity deaths go, as today we have lost MJ, Farrah, and Ed McMahon.

Lennon's fans were stoners who could look past his eccentricity. Michael's fans are old and apathetic; he's remembered now by youngsters who only know him as that weird black/white alleged child molester who is creepy as all hell in general. Personally, I like his music. The classics, anyway.
