Funny that Prince went straight to the guitar, aka showing Jackson is just a karaoke singer.
Wow, royalty! The King, the Prince and someone who has spent a lot time in the Court.
Micheal has always been so boring to me. Compare him to that wonderful little freak Prince. No comparison.
[quote]I always thought Prince's music was better too. MJ's music was plain and sappy.
Prince was drunk or high as fuck. He played a few chords, stripped and strutted around stage and tipped over a huge lamp prop.
Still an iconic moment in musical history though.
Was that at the Apollo?
James Brown's made cross dressing cool. A lot of gay men in the 80s copied.
I thought JB was a woman at first - that hair and the 80s outfit! Michael had so much talent and you can see here how much both he and Prince copped from JB.
If Hendrix was alive and on stage with them I think it would have combusted from the legend-ness.

They were at some place called the Beverly Theater. It was late August, 1983--a couple of months before the "Thriller" video was shot, and I believe just after "Purple Rain" had been filmed. Yes, Prince was high as fuck. Supposedly, he'd been doing blow backstage with JB's musicians just before. I love how he came down to the stage on the back of his burly bodyguard Big Chick Huntsberry.

That would explain why he couldn't leave his nose alone.
The King, the Artist and the Godfather.
Michael was on the verge of becoming the biggest star the world has ever seen. None of the weirdness and being afraid of people yet.
Prince is the only one who has been relatively unblemished by arrest or pedophilia.

I thought that too. He hugged people like a real person would. Tragic.
Prince is not unblemished by scary cults.
Prince is now an outspoken member of the violently anti-gay J/W cult.
I love Prince and James Brown. To me, Jackson was always a minor talent. Great dancer and performer, but his voice sucked. Brown & Prince waxed the floor with M.J.
Well, I haven't seen that much dysfunction on a stage since The Sound of Music...
Michael voice sucked, R15? Not hardly. The man could sing. He had such a pure falsetto, and his vocals permeated with charisma.

In 1980, the Great Purple One was arrested in Mississippi for "pulling a prank" on an airplane.
