Bob Marley Vs. Michael Jackson: Who Was Better by puskin: 2:01am On Jun 28, 2009
Each of these artistes is (oops) sorry, was KING of music in their own genre.
Bob Marley, the undisputed King of Reggae, worshipped by Jamaicans nd all Reggae fans/Rastafarians/Raggamuffins nd others alike.
Michael Jackson aka Wacko Jacko aka MJ, the undisputed King of Pop, worshipped by Americans, Pop fans nd MJ fanatics. Anytime MJ performs on stage, people fall unconscious. Such is the love for MJ.
Some school of thought suggest that MJ is/was better, while others suggest otherwise.
Now the BIG question.
Whom amongst them is greater or who is/was the all-time GREATEST artiste.
Your candid opinion is sought for.

Re: Bob Marley Vs. Michael Jackson: Who Was Better by mystikal(m): 8:39pm On Jun 28, 2009
Who was better? I dont know how fair the comparism would be! Both are legends.

But MJ definitely had more talent, more universal appeal, world class entertainer, just a star in all.
Re: Bob Marley Vs. Michael Jackson: Who Was Better by larayat(f): 10:05pm On Jun 28, 2009
both.
Re: Bob Marley Vs. Michael Jackson: Who Was Better by puskin: 11:38pm On Jun 28, 2009
@larayat
I agree, but make ur candid choice

@danzo
Aren't U being a lil' biased.

@mystikal
U r right about MJ. Bob Marley might not hv being a world class entertainer, but he definitely had universal appeal.

i think this thread is a lil baseless, but either way MJ was bigger and more of a spectacle even though they're both legends

Are u highh on some bob marley sh*t? Michael Jackson (RIP) is "THE GREATEST ENTERTAINER" the world will ever see.
Re: Bob Marley Vs. Michael Jackson: Who Was Better by Bamsyle(m): 9:01am On Jul 04, 2009
MJ was more amazing as a performer/entertainer . . .

BM was more amazing as a recording artiste/inspirational singer . . .

To know who was the better of the two . . . we'll first need to answer this question:

Which is better - the nose or the mouth??

Re: Bob Marley Vs. Michael Jackson: Who Was Better by ogazi007(m): 5:25pm On Jul 07, 2009
Bob marley is an inspirational singer,his songs cut across all facets of a black man's life.
u cant rock a party with bob marley songs,u only listen to them when u want to get real and sum up guts to confront your challenges head on.
marley was a human right activist and the lyrics of his songs represents his personality, he is the greatest of all time.
MJ is a legend no doubt,the content of some of his songs are quiet motivational like heal the world,but he is a commercial artist as far as im concern.u listen to MJ when u want to dance or when u are in a romantic mood, listen to marley when u want to meditate.
i think fela is a useful artist than dbanj, just my poor opinion

Re: Bob Marley Vs. Michael Jackson: Who Was Better by sheriffman(m): 10:57pm On Jul 07, 2009
For me I will choose Bob Marley anytime anyday
his songs had more appeal to me as an African
considering the times then and even now.
this not taking anything away frm MJ
he was the best in his genre

As a Ganja farmer, I will say Bob!! But as far as music in general, Micheal is still the king.
