Oct 31st 2009 4:01AMWell I grew up as a little girl during the era of Elvis and remembered when her died from a drug overdose at 42 years old in his bathroom, on 1977. Michael Jackson was 19 years old when Elvis died. I also grew up in my teens during the Jackson 5/Michael Jackson era. Both artist have completely different musical styles and are from different genre's of music, so IMO there's no comparison to either. It's like comparing apples and oranges..both are two different fruits.
Elvis was great in the 50s, 60s, and early 70s. MJ was just starting out with a recording career in the late 60s (1968 with Motown)and was 10 years old. By the time MJ came along, his career was making a jump start with the Jackson 5...Elvis was on his way out with his style of music, and a new musical era of disco was taking form.
All I can say is I have traveled and been on all 7 continents in the world, and MJ is famous and well known on all 7 continents. Never have I seen a musical artist that spans the globe at the level of Michael Jackson. For those who refuse to admit it, or do not want to accept it...Michael Jackson is a global music icon. Michael Jackson is very famous on all 7 continents. Only in America does he face ridicule, disrespect, and mistreatment...in the land where he was born.
People who live in the USA always thought MJ had to rely on the American public for support, but he was more famous overseas and better treated than he was within his own country. The other 6 continents in the world judged Michael Jackson only for his musical, singing, dance talents, and recognized a god given gift when they saw it.
Michael Jackson's music appeals to all races of the world, from all walks of life, and has no musical boundaries. Michael Jackson has definitely placed and impact in the world with his music, and from what I've seen with my own eyes and personal experiences, the impact he's left on the world is going to be around for quite a while.
