R.I.P. Michael Jackson  

mj.jpg



訃報を聞いた日は直近のアルバム"Thriller (25th Anniversary Edition)"を一気に2回通して聞いた。どの曲も本当に珠玉の名盤ばかりだし、それらの楽曲をサンプリングしてヒットに繋がった曲が次々と浮かんでくるし、報道の過熱ぶりも手伝い(そんなものは比べる尺度ではないのだが)改めてMichael Jacksonという人間の影響力を実感した日でもあった。全盛期に立ち会えはしなかったが、偉大な功績が伝説化するまでの歴史の一片を覗けた事は本当に嬉しく思う。 

R.I.P.


Quincy Jones: “I am absolutely devastated at this tragic and unexpected news. For Michael to be taken away from us so suddenly at such a young age, I just don’t have the words.
Divinity brought our souls together on The Wiz and allowed us to do what we were able to throughout the 80’s.

To this day, the music we created together on “Off The Wall,” “Thriller” and “Bad” is played in every corner of the world and the reason for that is because he had it all…talent, grace, professionalism and dedication.

He was the consummate entertainer and his contributions and legacy will be felt upon the world forever.

I’ve lost my little brother today, and part of my soul has gone with him.”


Chris Brown: “Michael Jackson is the reason why I do music and why I am an entertainer. I am devastated by this great loss, and I will continue to be humbled and inspired by his legacy. My prayers are with his family. Michael will be deeply missed, but never forgotten. He’s the greatest… the best ever. No one will ever be better. ”

 
Usher: “This loss has deeply saddened me, with a heavy heart I composed this statement. May God cover you Michael. We all lift your name up in prayer. I pray for the entire JACKSON family particularly Michael’s mother and all his fans that loved him so much. I would not be the artist, performer, and philanthropist I am today without the influence of Michael. I have great admiration and respect for Him and I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to meet and perform with such a great entertainer In so many ways he transcended culture. He broke barriers, he changed radio formats! With music, he made it possible for people like Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama to impact the mainstream world. His legacy is unparalleled Michael Jackson will never be forgotten.”


Elizabeth Taylor: “Dame Elizabeth Taylor is too devastated by the passing of her dear friend Michael Jackson to issue a statement at this time.”

Taylor, who was a close and dear friend to Jackson for several years, was the one who dubbed him the “King of Pop.”


Paul McCartney: “I feel privileged to have hung out and worked with Michael. He was a massively talented boy man with a gentle soul. His music will be remembered forever and my memories of our time together will be happy ones.”


Madonna: “I can’t stop crying over the sad news. I have always admired Michael Jackson. The world has lost one of the greats, but his music will live on forever!My heart goes out to his three children and other members of his family. God bless.”
