About Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson was unquestionably the biggest pop star of the late 20th century, and certainly one of the most popular recording artists of all time. In his prime, he was an unstoppable juggernaut, possessed of all the tools to dominate the charts seemingly at will: an instantly identifiable voice, eye-popping dance moves, stunning musical versatility, and loads of sheer star power. His 1982 blockbuster Thriller became the biggest-selling album of all time -- it remains his best-known accomplishment. Yet as Jackson's career descended from the heights of his commercial peak, most of the media's attention focused on his increasingly bizarre eccentricities. Still, whether as a pop icon or a tabloid caricature, Jackson always remained bigger than life. ~ Steve Huey
