Joe Rogan reflects on Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson

During an episode of The Joe Rogan Experience (JRE), Peters and Rogan spoke about Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley, their impact on music, and how popular they were during the height of their careers.

Rogan said:

“There has never been a person like him [Elvis Presley] before that was that famous. Ever. Michael Jackson was like the next one, right. There’s never been someone like him either.”

Jon Peters is widely known in Hollywood as one of the most experienced producers in the business. The 77-year-old has worked for some great movies such as the original and remake of ‘A Star is Born’ (1976, 2018), Muhammad Ali’s biopic ‘Ali’ (2001), ‘Superman Returns’ (2006), and ‘Batman’ (1989). During the podcast, Peters went on to follow up by telling a story about the first time he met Michael Jackson:

“Michael Jackson and I, I went to him when I was doing ‘Batman’. I had prints to do the music. I wanted Michael to do the warring theme, like a fight song. Michael backed out but we became friends, he took me to his house, he showed me Thriller. He said to me, ‘You did American Werewolf [In London] and I copied you to do Thriller!'”
