But still, they were the Champions, they were the people that broke them Amplifiers simply due to a technology limitations at the time...
Sad Day...did not expect it, had tickets for the concert too..:(
But it's our time NOW!
Search giant Google confirmed to the BBC that when the news first broke it feared it was under attack. Millions of people who Googled the star's name were greeted with an error page rather than a list of results.
It warned users "your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application".
Google was not the only company overwhelmed by the public's clamour for information. The microblogging service Twitter crashed with the sheer volume of people using the service.
MJ, a talented and troubled star, perhaps he'll now have peace.
Thanks for all the great music and shows. You've left us with a fantastic legacy that will live on forever.
His 'physician' was with him when he was taken ill.That sort of contradicts the earlier announcements that he was 'discovered' in a bad state.
He was on a lot of 'prescription medication'.Overdose? Suicide? Was he friends with Farrah? What about the stress of the upcoming concert tour?
Speaking of shows, I certainly hope the promoter for his tour that was supposed to start next month has insurance. And that their insurance company has insurance... According to the report I heard last night, 750,000 tickets had already been sold, with the cheapest seats being $81.
Maybe they'll have him "lie in state" at the concert venues and let ticket holders in for visitation.
OD, and not surprising at all. His Doctor is now on the run from the police.
He was a great talent, it took me 2 decades to admit Thiller was a fine work of art ...because I was a rock guy back in the day and we would never admit MJ was any good at the time.
Edit: The vultures are right on it. I don't have a link, it may be removed from eBay anyway - but Michael Jackson's soul is reported to be up for bid on eBay.
One has to wonder who will miss him more, the fans who were silent while his scandals were in full force and are now proliferating the Internet with their love for MJ, or the ones who used him as an Internet topic in so many jokes and images.
