RIP Eo.

Really, how can I put into words how I feel about his music? Billie Jean. PYT. Thriller. The Free Willy theme song. And his dancing! The moon walk. Thriller. The crotch grabbing. Who cares about this guys' alleged child abuse and financial history and his kids' odd names and his outrageous...face...issues?! He's an icon!! A legend!! He's the Prince of Pop. And above all....he was Captain Eo.

If you ask me (which I know you didn't) but MJ died years ago. In the end he was just a crazy, sad little man.
Just because he died doesn't mean his music is gone too.
His music was more of an influence then he was after he went wacko.
Just my 2 cents... feel free to delete this if it upsets you.
But don't be sad... his music will probably stay around for years to come.

Sorry, but I'm not much of a mj fan. But I do agree, he had some good music.

I also have enjoyed listening to his music the past few days....kind of as a memorial to him. I am so so grateful that we can just love people, try to find the good in them and leave the judging to a just God. I am a little taken aback by how many "haters" are out there...especially for someone who has passed on. I mean, sure, it's been a little annoying how much media coverage has been going on, but that's not really his fault now, is it?

YES!!! I love that you found Captain EO on YouTube! It was on there a few years ago, and then it got taken down. Since then I haven't checked to see if it was back up! I love it!!!!!

Holy Cow I have not seen that since i was like 4 yrs old and in Disneyland. I remember taking my 3D glasses off and getting bored, but wow thanks for the memory! I am so intrigued by him and his life. I was a fan, not of him, but the music and dancing. I can't ever remember not having Michael Jackson not part of the music world. It's way weird. Thanks so much!

He was an interesting guy with some issues, but truly an amazing singer and dancer. He had amazing talent!
