In more recent times (relatively speaking) I remember seeing Jeffrey Daniel of Shalamar moonwalking to 'A Night to Remember' before MJ was ever shown doing it.

This is old news.



I don't think Michael Jackson has ever claimed that he invented the Moonwalk

However he is the one that has made it really famous and took it from the streets of America and where it is now.

MJ never claimed to have invented it, as mentioned earlier. I think it was more the hardcore fans that wanted to claim that this was the case.
But he brought the moonwalk to a different level, and what became what it is today.
He basically fine tuned to perfection.

I did the moonwalk for several years as I was doing street-dancing back in the 80's. (damn I'm getting old) Big grin

By the way, the guy in the video at 1:55 - 2:06 is really good.

If I am not mistaken, Michael Jackson even credited Jeffrey Daniel for inspiring him do the Moonwalk.

Varig707, not only did he NOT invent it, he credited it to someone else.

Not quite. His inspiration was Marcel Marceau. And there was a soundbyte from Marceau acknowledging it and thanking Jackson.

He may not have invented it, but he made it a worldwide phenomena. Often, those who invent something don't cash in on how big it becomes.

I think it was more the whole package: moonwalk/the hat/the white glow and his music on top of it.

Same for Elvis and other entertainers that cashed in on other people's music, dance, act, etc...

Yeah, but back in those early days of Rock & Roll, many performers started out by doing "covers" of others' songs and actually making that version more popular than the original.

Elvis was still a pretty original act, overall.

I never said he was a prolific songwriter. Not every performer writes his own material. Plenty of musicians out there that rely on the many songwriters that are available. Actually, that's more songs than many other performers have written. Not everyone is a songwriter; not everyone is a performer. There are some songwriters that think they're performers, but should probably stick to writing. Then there are the truly talented ones that can do both.
