Michael Jackson is of our time.  Elvis died when I was 7, and I was not around when the Beatles had their go at it.  D

BTW Elvis Presley was the top earning dead celebrity last year earning 52 Million...  D

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Denb45_ I'm 52 and annibec is right, there is alto of life left for us.

I actually saw the Beatles when I was 8 y.o....all I remembered was getting out of the car, and people were screaming like crazy. I'm like "Where the hell am I? I was so nervous. I had no clue as to the enormity of the occasion. (My Dad got the tickets on Wall st. He made my oldest brother take me)

From the list, I'd have to choose Elvis.  My mother would play his gospel albums on Sundays.  :D

Don't I wish. I use to have most of his stuff on cds until my bastard of an ex-husband sold them to get high. I envy you, know this. Now if you have one of his long trenches over there, I am making a stop before I get to NY...what's your fave song? For me, it's hard to have just one. And the bitch of it is I never seen him in concert.

I have a couple Prince albums (vinyl), and hubby has a 12" single of Purple Rain on purple vinyl!

From the choices given, I'd choose the Beatles, early Elvis, and then MJ (but mostly the Jacksons and the Jackson 5 vs just MJ).  I haven't liked MJ's music since '79 or '80.  It just got too commercial and pop for me.  For older music, I've always enjoyed the Beatles, but prefer the Rolling Stones.

Oh dear -- you know I even possess his very first 12" Just As Long As We're Together (Disco Mix) / Soft And Wet (promo only I'll have you know!) and IIRC it fetches around $75 on eBay.  Quite rare.

Fave song -- oh, a bit hard to say.  Something off either Dirty Mind or Controversy I'm sure.

Let's see for me its MJ because there is Billie Jean at my Junior Prom and moonwalking. But I did witness one of elvis' last concerts months before he died in alabama and the adoration he received I never saw at a MJ concert. The Beatles never did anything for me. So I say Elvis the King. Thank you, thank you very much.

You must see Prince in concert! He puts on a fantastic show and his band is always rock solid.

I had Let's Go Crazy/Erotic City on vinyl. Back in Asheville in 1984 Erotic City was a huge hit.

I heard that Prince is in need of a Hip-Replacement Surgery, but, his religion doesn't allow for a blood transfusion, don't know how reliable this info is, as I heard this on Sirius XMs-Channel 64 The Groove, while listening last week? and one of the Old School DJs said it was really true  ???
