This is a tough one to score. First, it's not on Hulu, so that's a big fucking mark against it right there. Second, I'm pretty sure there's a direct line from this to Jazz Man. Also, I don't care what Onstad says, Michael Jackson is not our Elvis.
Toenails, Elvis had managed to pull off a comeback.
Then he slinked off in a netherworld of drugs & paranoia.
Elvis is remembered for opening the door for black music to become mainstream.
MJ will be remembered as a creepy guy who lived in the shadow of a best selling album he could never top.
And a few other things...
Oh no, you misunderstand (which was my fault because I constantly type walls-of-text that make myself look retarded).
I agree with Camonk in the sense that there is no way you can compare two singers that have no similar style (Elvis with his white-bread blues/rock, and Jackson with his androgynous pop-tunes). I was just saying that given time, he's certainly going to gain a kitschy cult-status that I've only seen in Presley (hell, I don't even think Lennon enjoys that type of Weekly World News-esque fandom).
*Every* musician is going to have to live in the shadow of Thriller. As the second best didn't even sell half of what Thriller sold.
Fair enough, I still don't foresee legions of Michael Jackson impersonators & awkward tour guide moments explaining that this is the room where MJ served up the Jesus Juice...
Considering the colossal amount of debt & sordid history of the Neverland ranch;
I'd be amazed if a museum is founded...
Not actually Michael Jackson guys
