    Wow...just wow. I was no fan, by any means. Nevertheless, it's not shocking as much as stunning, if that makes any sense.

    So far TMZ is the only one reporting it. This could be a Paul McCartney situation.

    He was revived and taken to the hospital, according the CNN. This post should come down.

    CNN (on TV of course) is now saying that it's looking "grim". Hopefully he comes through. I'm no fan either, but he has a family just like the rest of us.

    It appears only TMZ is reporting he died. Other sources report he is in a coma.

    I think he revolutionized the pop genre/culture didn't he. I personally have never been a massive fan but I doubt there is a person in the world who hasn't heard of Michael Jackson.

    Never liked him, won't miss him. But I respect what he accomplished. Anyone dying of a heart attack at 50 is sad.

    I heard that Lou Ferigno was training him to get him back in shape for his upcoming concerts... seems like the guy's heart couldn't take it. It's a pretty sad story when you consider how high he went and how bad things got with his finances and personal life.

    Regardless of your view of Jackson, he was an integral part of the history of the New England Patriots. Boxing promoter Don King was nvolved in Jackson's "Victory" concert tour, and Billy Sullivan's son Chuck got involved. Sullivan was in way over his head negotiating with a guy like King, and King took Sullivan to the cleaners. Bottom line was that he lost so much money the Sullivans had to sell the team. A couple of owners later Robert Kraft entered the picture in Foxborough, and the rest is history.

    Michael Jackson so totally morphed from the cute little boy who sang "ABC,easy as 123"... then there was "Beat It" , he did the moonwalk...he was an icon then all of a sudden he tipped his scales,my God:eek:

    Whatever happened to him over the years, such a sad story and such an incredibly bizarre one at the same time. I remember when the Pepsi sign lit him on fire, then he had the glove, then suddenly he developed some kind of skin disease. He always had an umbrella, he used to wear a mask,all his surgeries...his story really is a sad one.

    RIP and I look forward to the book. His life took a very strange and tragic journey and you really wonder how he got to where he finally ended up.

    So what's the over/under on how soon the "he's not really dead - it's all a charade because he wants privacy" a la Elvis and Jim Morrison theories begin?

    (And as an aside, Mark Sanford (of "Sanford and Hon" fame) has got to be pretty happy this media cycle blew his story of the top of the headlines)

    So you mean he'll have tickets reserved for him at some stadium?

    I remember people dancing to Thriller at the clubs when I was younger ... his music made people happy.

    No matter what things he 'allegedly' did, he was a musical genius.

    His videos still make me think 'wow'!

    He will be missed.

    Wasted genius. He has to be up there as one of the bigger wastes of talent in a long, long time.
