Sorry to say that this is another Michael Jackson thread but to my astonishment all the hype around his death has made me take another look at his work. I was never a particular fan but now I am looking at him in a new light. I was watching a bit of TV which showed footage of rehearsals taken a few days before his death and even then his immense talent was plain to see. Now I can see why his fans are so devoted. Yes, he was a very mixed-up and rather sad individual but history shows that talented people often were 'unusual' in their behaviour. It's funny how certain situations, particularly life-changing ones make us look more closely at things and are capable of making us change our minds completely.
