Michael Jackson: The Man, The Magic, The Mystery

62 notes

Michael Jackson – Prime position in my pantheon of musical heroes and the most iconic cultural figure of all time in regards to my life. Coming from an atheist background I genuinely believe that at an early age he was the only person / bloke that I saw of as different or higher to others; yet oddly felt like he was one of my own, divinely connected. His production techniques are all over our music.

I remember once, I was sat in front of the TV – I must have been about six – and my dad’s mates are all welders. They were sat behind me watching a video of Michael Jackson. And they were expressing their opinions about how alien he was, how unrelatable he was. And I remember thinking to myself: ‘Well, I’m a lot more like him than I am like you.’
