Working over four decades in the music industry, Michael Jackson was one of the most popular entertainers of all time. He began his career in the 1960's as the lead singer of the sibling music group, The Jackson 5. He eventually went solo in the 1970's, and the 80's and 90's saw his fame skyrocket. He not only became a popular singer and dancer, but also a household name across the globe.
Michael Jackson had a love for video games. He especially loved games produced by Sega and lent his likeness to several, from Moonwalker to Space Channel 5. He also worked with Sega on the soundtrack to Sonic the Hedgehog 3, but remained uncredited (at the request of Jackson himself). He owned various Sega arcade cabinets, ranging from the rare Sega R-360 to Star Wars Racer Arcade.
