Michael Jackson will never die

Pop singer Michael Jackson died suddenly on Thursday at the age of 50. In an obiturary in the daily Dziennik, musician and composer Marcin Staniszewski says that although the man may have passed away, the artist is immortal: "It's true, Michael Jackson didn't record a single album in the past decade that could come close to his legendary 'Thriller' [of 1982]. But there's no doubt in my mind that with him the world has lost the man who - aside from the Beatles and Elvis Presley - exerted the most profound influence on popular music. Musicians of almost every genre trace their roots to Michael Jackson. From [US soul singer] Beyoncé ... to the next generation of young musicians. ... Michael Jackson not only combined rock and blues with funk and pop in an explosive mix that promted other musicians to carry out their own experiments. ... Along with that, his inimitable dance style is unforgettable. ... I don't know if I'll miss Michael Jackson. But I do know that like Elvis, he'll never die."
