He was such a larger-than-life kind of character that it's hard to think of anything but cheesy and seemingly-callous remarks, which I'll keep to myself for the moment. Suffice to say that the boy had issues, and to that extent I hope he's found some peace. But he was a talented, talented man, and you've got to respect that.

He was a train-wreck level fascinating example of what you get when there's profound family dysfunction in one's childhood, followed by the fame and fortune to impose the World In His Head on reality at levels not normally achievable.

There really is something to the tortured artist cliche`. He was an amazing performer until his face fell in.

I always thought a doctor or two got uppity and jealous and intentionally botched up the surgery, myself.

Thank you for being kind, Gneech. It means a lot.

The Michael Jackson I'll remember is the early one. Thriller and all that went with that time frame. He had great talent but the mental trauma he suffered scared him for life.

Farrah was a wonderful actress but I think her last years should stand out as her real worth. She used her fame to heighten awareness and allow others to see inside the suffering that hundreds of others have to suffer in silence.

Ed Mcmahon was one of those talented and true people who dwelled forever in the shadow of someone else. His service to his country was outstanding. He was a Marine aviator who fought in both WWII and Korea and he stayed in the reserves until 1966 retiring as a Colonel and highly decorated fighter pilot. Not many knew the dedication nor the true worth of him and it pains me that so little is being said about him due to even his death being overshadowed by the deaths of Michael and Farrah.

I'll miss them all.

It's sad that this talent became so troubled (and twisted). There are many explanations (or excuses for it) but I think it's best to just remember the music.

That's what people seem to identify with, and remember.
