Reply to "Prince vs. Michael"

And you know, not that I really credit sales all that much in assessing true talent, but AG raises a great point that I want to build on. How many artists -- honestly, how many PEOPLE -- succeed to the astonishing level he reached, as totally on his own as Prince did? Also, consider that he did it all with one of the strangest, most bizarre personas that we had seen up until that time? He did whatever the hell he wanted to do, really, and was incredibly successful. Even if we look at it in terms of popularity, I can name no one in history who has truly managed to do that and attain the level of popularity he did.
