MJ got that sympathy spot. he was great but he's not even touching anyone else in that 5. a pop icon shouldn't be put next to dylan, the beatles, stones, or zeppelin. if you disagree you haven't heard their albums. don't kid yourself, you're out of your element.
MJ made people the world over lose their f**king minds when they saw him. You can argue about order, but to say he's not even TOUCHING them - well maybe you're not considering what it takes to stay on top of the pop world. I'm just saying it's a debate. For this dude to come out as a black artist (for a lot of the time
) and have people the world over falling all over him, that's incredible. He had a barrier to get through from jump, and throughout his life. Again, I'm not saying he's better, just saying he's deserving of the debate with the rest of them. His catalog is ridiculous, just like those others. I'm not up on Dylan, I"m so-so on the beatles and stones, and I've heard a bunch of zeppelin but only have a couple of their albums I really know. They aint just s**ttin on mike, man.
