    Re: Michael Jackson or Elvis

    Shouldn't this be a poll?
    And shouldn't this be in the Music and Entertainment forum?

    Anyway, I'll go with Elvis, and I can tell that most of the people here would as well.
    Elvis died before MJ, and unlike MJ, he was a nice person when he died.

    What makes you think MJ wasn't a nice person when he died? A bit mentally ill perhaps, but I have never seen any reason to believe he didn't mean well.

    I can't. This is important.

    Gotta go with MJ. More talent and much more original.

    I respect Elvis for going to the army, can't think of one self-indulgent artist these days who would do that.

    Now Elvis probably would have been more famous had he been around in these more global times, but since he wasn't- MJ takes the cake here.
    Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?

    Re: Michael Jackson or Elvis

    I think that Elvis left a far greater legacy. In essence, he is a huge cornerstone for Rock N' Roll and is a big part of why it even exists in the first place. Michael Jackson was a very big and influential figure as well, but not nearly as much as Elvis was. I mean, come on.... Elvis was a huge inspiration to the Beatles! Personally, I'm a bigger fan of MJ's music than Elvis', but that's because I'm more a part of the MJ generation than the Elvis generation.

    Re: Michael Jackson or Elvis

    All this outpouring for MJ was overdone.

    How will you all react when someone way more talented, like Stevie Wonder, passes away ? Will you still be all out of superlatives from usin them on Mr 3 albums ?

    Elvis was the King, And Stevie blows Michael's doors off, so you people need to get some perspective.
