Rocker Chris Cornell is set to astound fans with his upcoming sophomore solo album, which contains his cover of Michael Jackson's classic BILLIE JEAN. The Audioslave singer, who used to front Soundgarden, admits the cover is a surprise choice, but insists fans will barely recognise the source material. He says, "There was once a time when Michael Jackson was cool. He was once at the cutting edge of music, even though it was pop. "There were two things about the song that appealed to me - the song is quite dark and I knew I could make it in to my own, like Johnny Cash did it with Soundgarden's RUSTY CAGE and Nine Inch Nails' Hurt. "If I've played it for someone in the studio, it takes them a little while to realise what the song is. I think it's a moving song and covering Michael Jackson is the last thing anyone would expect from me. It's an odd choice for a cover song."

As a Michael Jackson fan I am not amazed.Mister Cornell just don't want to admid even he likes MJ his songs. And for Cornell it's the only way to get some sale on his new album. If it wasn't for his cover I would have never heared of Cornell. And I am sure I am not the only one.And by the way it's cool to be a Michael Jackson fan.I am proud to be a Michael Jackson fan for more then 27 years. Billie Jean is a MJ song nomather how you cover it.So are millions of others proud to be a MJ fan.May I remind you that the Thriller album which includes Billie Jean has sold more then 104 million copies world wide. So what is cool? Who is cool?Michael Jackson is the only KING OF POP.MJ Rules!
