he, Jackson and, for that matter, George Michael were all on CBS), he replies: "I was a political sacrifice. This isn't my theory. I'm telling you."

That may sound conspiratorial but it rings true. Record companies have always hated having too many successful artists, and were constantly trying to "cull the herd" of their biggest moneymakers.

My first job out of high school was in 1987 making the tracks for vertical blinds in a factory. There was an older stoner and two metal dudes my age that worked there also. They generally hated the top 100 pop station that played all day (chosen by the owners admin asst that he was also having an affair with) and griped about all of it. I am not sure why but this dude's song Wishing Well used to fark them up most of all. They would become livid when it came on. Still makes me laugh to this day.

Listeners can be fickle and weird.  You have all of your life to write your first album and then it looks like he had three years to do his second while he blew up as an artist and toured.

Three years is a LONG time when you're talking about the late 80's.  Willing to bet in between there was also a major shift from cassette to CD.

The world is filled with "artists" that never got the chance to even get recognized or had the potential to fail after having success.

You want PTSD?  Go do competitive karaoke.  Go front a bar band.  Go build your vision from the ground up, pour your heart and soul and every dime into it, and watch the world shiat all over it.

Sorry you didn't have the same amount of success as Prince or Michael Jackson.  Join the farking club.

...riiiiiight. He manufactures a "chosen one" backstory, casts his "rise and fall" using the Greek gods as his chosen metaphor, discards his prior persona in an attempt to divest himself of the connotations of the brand associated with that persona, and implies that, by doing so, somehow became more than "his colleagues?"

Christ, what an asshole.
