I first read it as a teenager, and its really a great book. Michael wrote it during the "Bad" era, and there's tons of great images in it, too. My previous copy was in terrible condition, so I grabbed this one as a replacement.

Yeah, I'd heard a lot of good things about that one, so I picked it up two weeks ago, and recently finished it. One of the last lines recommended Taraborrelli's book, so I thought I'd chance it, and I'm curious to get Jermaine's perspective on a lot of things (don't spoil it!)

I'm sorry, but I disagree completely. I'd love to debate the issue even further, but you've already made up your mind, so there isn't much point. Does that make sense?

Michael Jackson, the creator and master of the moonwalk. That is the best dance move, ever! My favorite song is Smooth Criminal.
I wanted to buy the Michael Jackson's Moonwalker Genesis game but it is too expensive. The sellers on Amazon want $35 plus for the game and it does not even include the original case or instructions. Damn! Sorry for changing the subject.

Actually, he didn't create it. That move has been around for years, under various names, and has been used by people like Marcel Marceau and James Brown. Michael simply popularized it; he even admits learning the basics from a couple of street dancers in his "Moon Walk" biography.

That's definitely one of the best from the "Bad" era, and I love the 1930s gangster style.

Sadly, a lot of media prices concerning MJ have skyrocketed since he died. I'd personally like to get the official Opus book, since the price has dropped quite a bit.

I own the Opus,it is pretty fantastic...though I could do with something to display it on as it has been stored away in the cardboard box it came in.
I also have an autographed 'artist of the decade platinum award'

Very nice; did you buy it from a dealer, or actually have the chance to meet MJ yourself before he died?

Unfortunately not,I did see him twice in concert,that's the closest I have got,well that or the front gate's of Neverland.
I bought the award from a memorabilia shop in Hollywood,California back in 1998.

The very first time that I had seen the moonwalk was when Michael Jackson did it. My mistake!

I assume you don't have the game either? If the price ever drops down to around $15, I will definitely buy it.

No worries; I thought the same thing for years, until learning otherwise.

I don't have the Genesis game, but I recently bought "The Experience", for the Wii.

Anybody remember this gem??!!??


I remember when this came out, I thought it was absolutely brilliant and the best thing MJ had done in a long long time! Yet for some strange reason, it went largely unnoticed. I guess in the wake of all his scandal and waining popularity, it quickly faded into obscurity. However to this day I think it's one of the absolute coolest things he ever did!!

I got a despatched email today,I am really looking forward to the DVD,I already have a 2-3 versions of Bad ,that was the album that made me a fan so I have always swayed towards that as my favourite as much for nostalgic reason's as for it's brilliance.

It's a great little short film with some cracking tunes from the Blood on the dancefloor album,I believe M.J. plays a few different parts.
I have it on VHS but have no longer anything to play it on.

Michael played both the Maestro and the Mayor, who was obviously modeled after Tom Sneddon. The makeup was so brilliant for the latter, too.

Amazon has a Video CD version of it; here's the link.

I had the older CD at one point, that included "Leave Me Alone", but sold it after buying the Special Edition a few years back.

I did notice one thing about both, though; the chapter break is offset between "Speed Demon" and "Liberian Girl". The ending of the first blends into the opening notes of the second, instead of a clear silence between them.

Yeah I did notice that the two songs were mixed into each other(quite well I might add)
I still have my original vinyl, a cassette I am sure somewhere and a few cd's,the original,the leave me alone extra track album and a black Bad cover instead of white.

Thank's for the link,I will have to look into that.
Your right about the whole Tom Sneddon thing,in fact the whole underlying issue of Ghosts is the false allegations and betrayal that M.J. felt.
The song D.S. on the HIStory album is right to the point.

Yeah the lyrics are printed as "Dom Sheldon" in the HIStory booklet, but I think that was probably to avoid a defamation suit (which Sneddon surely would've filed, due to his personal vendetta). With the song itself though, I honestly can't tell which MJ is actually singing.
