Why would you assume I was talking about the 70s when we were talking about the recording of an album that you know was recorded in 1982? Thriller was the album that propelled him to megastar status so obviously he wasn't there yet prior to the release of that album.

By the time the Thriller album was released and took off we all can agree MJ was WAYYYY bigger than them. MJ did not tour for Thriller till 84 which broke all kinds of records and was more successful than any of Van Halens tours.
Yeah yeah yeah, and if I hadn't stuffed my face full of pizza while I watched rugby in front of the TV I could have been Mr Universe by now.
All hypotheticals, doesn't change anything.

lol

I never said that they were not big.

There just not bigger than MJ


The fact that you don't want to accept that MJ surpassed them in popularity is kinda ridiculous. I respect your opinions but just saying.

MJ was huge in 82 and was selling out stadiums in that year. Van Halen was not bigger than MJ during this period sorry. I respect them but this is not true.

I was referring to the actual release of Thriller which was in 82'


I have been looking all over the internet and I can not find one source on Van Halen being titled the best touring act of 1982.

Can you please provide a link?

Yeah look at all that bondage and S&M gear they're wearing. And look, the one in sports clothing is showing off her midriff. And hell, one is showing off a leg....
