The Greatest Artists of All Time...

SO....before I fell asleep waiting for Kanye's big performance on the VMA's, I'd been channel-surfing and came across VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of All Time", which had probably been the eighth or ninth time it had aired. I happened to catch it in the last hour when they were at artist #7...Prince. Of course I was kicking myself that I'd missed such an interesting show, because I was sure there were some artists in the countdown that I was sure to debate (lol)! As they got to #6...Jimi Hendrix, I'm thinking, "Ok, this is pretty good, Michael Jackson BETTER be #1!!". The usual suspects were in the top 5..The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan...then, Michael Jackson comes in at number 2....NUMBER 2?! WHAT?!?! At this point, I'm thinking, who could be better than Michael Jackson? Then they go to commercial...a break that seemingly takes FOREVER!!! Then FINALLY they get to it...the GREATEST artist(s) of all time...THE BEATLES! I breathe a sigh of relief....they'd be the only artist(s) that would keep me from jumping up and throwing my tv out of the window in disgust for such a bogus countdown.

THE WORD "ARTIST" HAS BEEN/IS TAKEN MUCH TOO "LIGHTLY"...TO BE SUCH YOU HAVE TO BE "MORE" THAN A SINGER...YOU HAVE TO BE AN "ORGINAL" CREATOR...NO COPIES ALLOWED...I WOULD SAY NOBODY CAN TOUCH MICHAEL JACKSON AS AN ARTIST...HIS TALENT HAS ALWAYS SPOKEN FOR ITSELF...ALL ELSE REMINDS TO BE SEEN.
