MJ and the Cruisers

Via cherylmmorgan, The Pagan Prattle is tracking developing conspiracy theories that (a) Michael Jackson was murdered, and (b) he’s not really dead.

The latter possibility already occurred to me over breakfast this morning, not as serious speculation but as possible story fodder. How hard would it be, do you think, for someone as famous as Michael Jackson to successfully fake his own death? And perhaps a more interesting question, what would the public reaction be if he reappeared ten or twenty years later?

I know the movie Eddie and the Cruisers and its sequel kinda covered this territory, but those guys didn’t have anywhere near the same candlepower of fame.
