Michael Jackson has passed away and while I am sad for his family I did not know him personally and am therefore not that fussed. His contribution to music and the introduction of quality of music videos to MTV cannot be denied but in reality he had not done anything musical noteworthy for 10 years. It is therefore after death that he seems likely to make a huge impact on the music industry. Firstly posthumous sales have been huge. Secondly there is a huge catalogue of unreleased music that can now dripfeed into the worlds music catalogue.
