    Did MJ ever talk about the rise of Napster/MP3's and the decline of physical albums?

    There is something I've always wondered about: Circa 1999/2000, Napster arrived on the scene and and brought on a big fundamental change in the record industry. Since anyone could share and download mp3's of their favorite songs for free, the number of physical units of music (CD's, cassettes...

    The time I almost talked to Diana Ross about Michael.

    Let me preface this whole thing by saying I'M SORRY IF THIS TOPIC DOESN'T BELONG ON THIS SECTION OF THE FORUM. I wanted to tell a story that I had which is MJ related, but mods, if this thread doesn't follow the "official" guidelines, feel free to move it elsewhere. I wanted to share a personal...

    An idea for a "new" release: Thriller Revisited (plus outtakes)

    Here's an idea that I've been thinking about, and I'd like to hear other people opinions: In case some of you guys don't know, the process of creating the Thriller album was a difficult for MJ, Quincy, Rod Temperton, Bruce Swedien and everyone else. When the group finished the album and sent it...

    My case of why "What More Can I Give" must be re-released as a single NOW

    Hello everyone. I'm sure that all of you know the unreleased MJ song "What More Can I Give" and the unfortunate circumstances that led to the song not getting the proper traction and success that it should have. Even after almost 20 years, not many people outside of the MJ fan community even...

    60 unreleased Motown songs from 1969 (including one by the J5) just dropped on Spotify

    In case you guys missed it, Motown (who celebrates their 60th anniversary this year) just released a whole bunch of previously unheard songs that were recorded in 1969 on Spotfiy (and I'm assuming other streaming platforms) today! These songs include material not only by the Temptations, Stevie...

    The "official" name for MJ fanbase?

    Practically every single musical artist/group (even other celebrities not in the music industry) has some sort of name for their collective fanbase: e.g. Beliebers, the Beyhive, Directioners, Little Monsters, etc. This is a trend that I've personally only seen happening within the last 10-15...

    Pitch YOUR ideal posthumous album (if "Michael" & "Xscape" never existed)

    Hi everyone, I've wanted to help take people's minds off of this ugly Sundance movie and pose a hypothetical situation to everyone. As we all know, when MJ passed away, in addition to working on the London shows, he was working on-and-off on a new album He was possibly going to finish it by...

    Which Tour had the Best Band?

    Hi everyone, I'm not sure if there's ever been a thread dedicated to which tour had the best band, so I thought I'd make one It's currently 1 AM in the eastern USA and I couldn't sleep so I figured that I watch the official DVD of the Bad Tour Wembley concert. It's a shame that the CD version...

    Rare Dangerous Tour Rehearsal: Black Or White (3rd Leg)

    Hi everyone! I just stumbled across this behind the scenes video that was uploaded on Youtube not too long ago. It's Michael rehearsing Black or White for (presumably) the 3rd Leg of the Dangerous Tour. This must have been when Jennifer Batten, Michael's guitarist for most of the tour, was...

    Rare Jacksons B-sides from 1989!!

    I had absolutely no idea about this until just a few minutes ago, but it looks like The Jacksons recorded 3 songs in 1989 that were not included on the actual 2300 Jackson Street album (the one without Marlon and Michael, except for the title track), but as b-sides to the three singles from that...

    My pictures of The Jacksons live at the Paramount (Huntington, NY)

    This concert was very interesting for a number of reasons. I had already seen the brothers perform live twice before during their recent Unity Tour a few years ago, but this time was completely different. Why? Because for some reason there was NO JERMAINE at all! I know that some of you out...

    Get On Up (James Brown Biopic)

    The long-awaited biopic of the Godfather of Soul finally came out in theaters this weekend, but it released on the same weekend as a Marvel movie so I doubt that a whole lot of people will even see it. And that's a shame because I just got back from seeing it and I thought it was pretty...

    Michael's Best Motown Solo Album?

    I've noticed that the first four albums that Michael has done as a solo artist are generally overlooked by the general public, and even some fans, who insist that Off The Wall is his first and that these albums simply "don't count". It's true that MJ didn't have any creative input on the Motown...
