He wrote the lyrics, dude, but he can't play. :roll: He has producers who write the music and sequence it into their synthracks...
Again, if you check the album credits, that's not true.
All the songs I mentioned were written AND composed by Michael Jackson.
And if you don't believe me check with the ASCAP, that is as official as it gets in regards to song credits:ASCAP Directory for MJ
Or just go to www.ascap.com
and enter "Michael Jackson".
Also, acording to some of his producers and people he's worked with (Lionel Richie, Eddie Van Halen, who played the great solo in Beat It, Teddy Riley who co-produced with MJ on the Dangerous album) he plays the piano (which he composes most of his songs on) and also the guitar.
The reason he himself gives for not playing the instruments on stage is because the musicians he works with (some of the best in the world) when he's on tour, play those instruments better than he does. Plus he couldn't dance the way he does if he had a guitar hung around his shoulders or if he were sitting in front of a piano or keyboard.
Plus, as I said, he gives credits to producers if they contribute even the smallest bit to the songs. That doesn't mean they write the songs for him.
And before anyone starts the crap about the album lyrics being fake... There's no way he's been faking album credits for 30 years... He would have been sued a million times and he would have lost.
Look at Prince, he's sometimes lied about album credits and he was sued and he lost.
Anyway... the subject here is obviously Michael Jackson's private life, not his music. I get enough of that sort of crap from the Sun, Mirror and their various representatives on TV, so I'm not gonna surround myself with that sort of thing.
