Updated postmortem music sales[edit]

A lot of the information under "Record Sales" is already outdated. "Jackson's record sales increased dramatically in the hours following his death. His album Thriller climbed to number one on the American iTunes music chart, and another eight made it into the top 40.[26] In the UK, where he would have performed in less than three weeks, his albums occupied 14 of the top 20 places on the Amazon.co.uk sales chart, with Off The Wall topping the chart."

This article has information a bit more recent, http://www.billboard.biz/bbbiz/content_display/industry/e3i344418db676344f0d77ca668d6cc4a43

But I think things are going to keep changing over the next week or so. I'm not complaining about this or anything, but just saying that whoever is interested in editing the article should be on the look out for these new figures. They seem amazingly noteworthy.

Record sales[edit]

9 Michael's albums are on first 9 positions. Someone could wrote bout it cause there's only information they're in top 40.

Should we say it was really 1 billion people worldwide watching?[edit]

According to the "main" Michael Jackson page, the worldwide audience of 1 billion people didn't seem to be represented as a very accurate/reliable estimation.

What I mean is that the main page says that the audience may have been 1 billion, maybe not.

Can we sort of elaborate on this to be sure of it?

Thanks.

Conspiracy speculation?[edit]

Is the conspiracy speculation in the "Family reaction" section really appropriate for a Wikipedia article? It's not particularly well-written, either. SeraphisCain (talk) 23:59, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

I just took that entire section out. Besides being completely irrelevant and poorly written, most of the information in it is original opinion and the sources cited do not reflect what was written. NicosRM (talk) 21:49, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

Case article merger[edit]

I propose a merger of the page Michael Jackson Estate vs. AEG Live to here per WP:NOTNEWS and WP:N for stand alone articles. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 21:49, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

  • The section "Forensic anesthesiologist's report" was copied directly from the abstract. It was added by a sock of Scholarscentral who has been promoting OMICS Publishing Group, the publisher of the journal. This publisher does not have a proper peer review process so this publication is probably not a reliable source. January (talk) 20:40, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 25 June 2014[edit]

I would like to edit this page so I can add extra information and more pictures. I would also fix some mistakes. DroneOfTheWiki (talk) 16:26, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done This is not the right page to request additional user rights. - but as you have been blocked that is rather academic. - Arjayay (talk) 16:36, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
