Interesting ~ I wonder how much contact they had with each other through the years?
I have no idea but their parallels are interesting. Their mothers played wind instruments too. I love the sound of the clarinet and sax.

You don't really believe your dull response contains anything remotely clever, do you?

He should have continued along the lines of "They don't care about us", by writing more songs in that genre. The raw honesty was gutsy and brilliant. He should have taken his music with him underground, instead of having the establishment dictate to him what and how he should do things.
I would've stayed away from the angry military beats.

What would've worked was soulful ballads and funky jams.

I would've recorded it live in the studio with musicians.

What MJ needed to do was do songs like "Human Nature"

I would've hired a producer that knew how to do a real recording.

"Remember The Time" is another fine example.

Imagine an album that flows as one piece and tells a story?

I don't think Sony was dictating to MJ at all.

The material and production was too high in the mix, too glossy.

I would've gone for a more stripped down production with a band.

But that is my opinion on where he should've taken the music.

In order to have made another masterpiece, he need inspiration.

Instead, he went for tacked on computerized overproduction.

It kind of ruined his later day albums greatly and the songs.

Of course, it's too late now.

He should've went in another direction, working with other artists.

All the money in the world can never buy Simmons class. It bought him a lot of plastic surgery though. He and his wife have had more reconstruction done on them than what Michael Jackson ever did.
Gene Simmons and his wife still look human, as opposed to resembling bleached reptiles.

Gene Simmons and his wife don't pretend they never had plastic surgery, as opposed to lying on camera and saying they only had two nose jobs.

Michael Jackson didn't look like a reptile and did look human. His skin condition was not a part of plastic surgery. Making fun of a terrible illness is heartless.

Michael Jackson looked good before his makeovers and continued to do so right till the end. I have noticed that Simmons and his wife have not aged well despite their makeovers. They will look like shit not matter how their surgeon lifts their pudgy skin.

It's just like you to refer to Wacko's surgical butchering as 'makeovers'. Were those facial outrages performed by Dr Coco Chanel?

Had any of your anti-Semitic posts removed lately, bigot?

Molesting children after getting them high and drunk is heartless.

Gene Simmons and his wife still have their noses.

There's no proof that MJ ever did any of those things.

One has to wonder why so many families were so happy to settle if their sons really had been molested.

By whose standard are you lazily addressing that point, Jugsy? For one, the option of sparing children from excruciating testimony is not a new concept, but what would a steely-eyed lawyer such as you know of children?

If anyone is going to make such a serious accusation, then I definitely expect that accuser, regardless of age, to be subjected to the same kind of questioning and treatment that anyone else making a criminal accusation would receive.

As a lawyer, you understand that's not necessarily the case, don't you, Jugsy?

"Wacko Jacko feeding little boys Jesus Juice is not in and of itself proof of his pedophilia".
