Thread Name: Michael Jackson's Impact On Music Videos
Subject: Michael Jackson's Impact On Music Videos
The purpose of this thread is to provide information about and discuss the specific impact Michael Jackson has has on the production and promotion of music videos. The purpose of this thread is also to provide information and engage in a general discussion about the impact of music videos on the music industry.

While it's true that the online reading I've done about Michael Jackson after his death caused me to realize how much he had influenced the production of music videos, I'm hoping that this discussion isn't only about Michael Jackson. This thread isn't meant to be provide additional opportunities to discuss Michael Jackson's personal issues/problems. Nor is this thread meant to provide more opportunities to discuss [what I agree is] the inordinate amount of media coverage of Michael Jackson since he died suddenly on June 25, 2009.

In my opinion, questions about the efficacy of producing music videos to promote one's music as well as questions about the types of music videos that are produced are subjects that should be relevant to all music genres-including the folk music/blues genre that are the focus of this discussion forum.

Because I consider it pertinent to this discussion, I'll start this thread by reposting a comment I made in another recent Mudcat thread.

Thanks in advance for your participation in this discussion.
