That reminds me of Kevin Smith's story about how he went to Prince's house and ended up playing a wholesome game of ping-pong. That has got to be surreal and vaguely disapointing: you go to the house of someone who seems like a partying freak on stage, only to discover he's basically Ned Flanders in real life.

Michael Jackson was a phenomenal music talent, but he couldn't play instruments like Prince.

That was because Michael didn't need to, and he won a court case by proving it.https://www.nme.com/blogs/nme-blogs/the-incredible-way-michael-jackson-wrote-music-16799

I may go with MJ since he had a hand in the creation of the Sonic 3 & Knuckles soundtrack.

I’m sorry...did someone actually try and say MJ’s catalogue > Prince’s? GTFOH.

Mike had more success because he was more marketable, but he wasn’t as talented as Prince when it comes to song writing and musicianship. Mike gave you a better show, Prince gave you a better album.

I liked Mike, but Prince fucking smokes him.

The objective answer is Michael.

But this is essentially Apollo vs Dionysus.

Doh, nevermind. That was Rick James who kidnapped a chick, not Prince.

He was a goddamn angel. How dare I think otherwise.

I could be mistaken, but I swear I heard something about Prince's baby dying, and he did not report it for, like, an absurd amount of time (days/weeks). Not saying it was foul play or anything, but if it WAS Prince I am thinking of, there was a lot of suspicion there.

Pretty much, but I don't know if MJ gave a better show, either. I never saw either live, but Prince had a lot more ability in his shows to improvise and be loose, and he was no slacker on stage presence himself. But as great as a lot of Jackson singles and some deep cuts are, his output pales next to Prince's, which can match him on singles and crush him on albums.

No, it’s not. How are you consistently so wrong about everything?

Man,  you can't judge these two without including Prince's musical skill as well.   That's very much a part of him & his showmanship.  Hell,  Prince was able to create NPG and come with more original shit.   When he wasn't legally able to use his name. I've bought some Prince albums & singles.   I bought weird Al's 'Eat it!' instead of Micheal Jackson's 'Beat it!'

As for personally going to see them perform I've seen neither.   But,  I would've gone to Prince's shit over Mike's.   Now that I think about it.  I've turned or left the room when Mike performed.   Prince I'd watch his performances.

I prefer Prince but Michael had the larger impact.

This, kinda. MJ sold more records but Prince was just as influential and helped more new artists directly.

MJ is the better dancer/performer..Prince the better musician!Prince's songs have been hits for several other artists,as he was a writer/producer as well as an artist.the Time,Chaka,Khan,Sinead O'connor,the Bangles,& even Madonna had hit  songs by Prince.Michael wowed us since he was 9 years old.He was rocking stages long before Prince even had a record deal!Michael played the Scarecrow in "The Wiz"..Prince played himself in Purple Rain,..they were both incredible!

TBH I don't even like MJ's music that much. It's aged pretty poorly. IMHO, of course, and I'm aware I'm in the minority.

Prince's stuff is still great.

I said so, because it's TRUE damnit. Skel. We can go song for song, YouTube links and all, and I will convince you of this.
