    Good morning all.

    I have been a fan of MJ since 1987.
    I am French and I had the chance to experience the golden age when he often came to Europe during the History period.

    I had the chance to meet him several times briefly (in Paris and Berlin) I also have a picture of Michael and I taken in his van where he gave me an autograph.

    I always danced a lot during my youth. I hardly dance anymore now because I am disabled by an autoimmune disease.

    I started collecting again for 2 years. What I prefer to collect are the maxis and LPs. I also collect old video games, it's my second passion after music.

    Apart from MJ I listen to a lot of music in all styles! Currently my preference is lo-fi hip hop, jazz, oldschool french funk ... I am also interested in Japanese music like CITY POP and groups like X-Japan, Malice Mizer ... And some pop artists like Utada. I listen a lot of French music too. Some metal like Sabaton...

    I am passionate about cooking, sculpture, drawing, japan , theme Parks and animals. I use to leave in japan for some times.


    My favorite albums are: -History -Off the wall -Triumph -Dangerous -Victory -Goin 'places -Farewell my summer love -Destiny -Bad -The jacksons -Blood -Forever Michael -Music and me -Ben -Got to be there.

    My favorite tour is the Dangerous tour, victory tour, Bad tour, History tour, triumph tour, destiny tour.

    I also love the 2300 jackson street LP wich is really underestimated!

    if you have question you are welcome!

    Just the thread I am looking for.

    Hello everyone.

    My name is Brandon and I've been fan of Michael's since I was either 5 or 6 years old.

    The years sort of blend but I remember as a kid playing my parents' records before we owned a cd player. I loved the Victory album and I remember playing that LP a lot at the time as well as taking ownership of their thriller and bad cassettes so I'm certain it was around that time. I remember my mom buying me Dangerous on cd when it first came out. It was the first cd I ever owned.

    I've been following the forum for a while and I've decided to join and contribute, and celebrate Michael with all of you.

    Hello,

    My name is Sam, I'm from London, I joined this page to meet likeminded MJ fans as I dont know many (at least those who are as passionate as me).

    I've been into MJ since I was a little kid, my favourite album is Invincible, a little story, invincible was released when I was only 11 years old and had just moved from primary school not secondary school. This was not just important album to me because it was the first MJ album I purchased myself, but it was this album that kept me happy and in a way helped me deal with the difficult move from primary to secondary school. I didnt adjust very well into secondary, and often came home feeling miserable, so coming home, putting on that CD really helped me in those days. I'm forever thankful to MJ for those memories and I truly feel he helped me during some difficult times. Even to this day, when I feel down, MJ music always cheers me up.

    I never had the donor of seeing him live, but was supposed to attend this is it, the biggest what if of my life.
    A few years ago, my mother Kindly gave me her most prised possession, a signed MJ picture which she had. I proudly display it in my home framed.

    Thank you for reading my stories, please feel free to message me, I hope to use this site to make likeminded friends and talk all things MJ.

    peace

    Sam

    Hello.

    I've been an MJ fan since middle School. It's really nice to meet you all. :)
    My introduction to him was through the Jackson 5. Michael's music helped me get through some tough times and I listen to him now and then whenever I draw.

    Hi, I'm Beck -- I was like a lot of kids who had parents from the 80s, my mom (who was actually more of a Prince fan) had my brother and I listen to Michael Jackson and watch his music videos. As a little kid I was mesmerized by his style and his confidence in himself. I heard that he burned his hair in an accident and I always felt bad for him. When he died I was 5, and I remember seeing it all over the news and I was amazed at how someone so famous could die so suddenly like that. I sort of forgot about Michael for the rest of my childhood, and actually didn't really listen to music at all until a few years ago.

    When I was 14 or 15 I had a weird thought of "could Michael Jackson rap" and I read about his song "Can't Let Her Get Away" and it surprised me -- as a person who only ever listened to "Billie Jean"/"Thriller"/"Beat It"/"Bad"/"Earth Song" it sounded so different. I assumed he made it in the 2000s near the end of his life, it was such a different sound. But it was until I was 17 that I pondered that question again and found his songs "Unbreakable" and "Shout" and I immediately became a fan.

    Hi everyone,

    I am 41 years old and a former fan of MJ. I only became re-interested again lately after watching a random video of MJ that was recommended to me on YouTube. Ever since I have gone down this rabbit hole of MJ history and more in depth of his music and unfortunately his allegations and his death.

    I was a huge fan of his during the 80s when the album Bad was peaking in the charts. Man...I used to always try to dance like him in Smooth Criminal. That brings me back to my childhood. Ever since I grew out of it and started getting interested in other things.

    Then came June 25, 2009 when he passed away. I am 29 years old and was driving to work when the car next to me had the song "Beat It" blasting at max volume. Wow! Up to that moment, I hadn't heard this song or any MJ song for a long, long time. Then I arrived to work to look at the TV and find out he had passed away. I was sad but it didn't register at that time. Fast forward to now in 2021. I am going through a tough time with my life right now as I have been back stabbed by so called friends. After viewing the recommended MJ video I could see some similarity of me to his own life. He was backstabbed and take advantage of by people who abused his kindness from people of all walks of his life. I connected to him with that experience because I (like Michael) was and still am a kind hearted person.

    Right now I feel this void in my heart. His death just hit me like a ton of bricks. I don't think this feeling I've ever felt in my life. I am grieving right now but I am glad I found this community and am looking forward to read about his fans too.

    See you at forums everyone!
