This is the most difficult question to answer. I don`t know what the "IT" factor was. It is so intense that it is beyond description. We all know the obvious the voice, the moves , that face! There is just something about him that gets into your soul and becomes a part of who you are. He was so powerful and strong yet so weak and innocent. He was so sexual and yet so shy. He seemed to be at the top of his game yet, he was in the dept of despair. It is the whole package of who he was that gives him the "IT" quality. There never was and never will be another. I love him like a family member. No way to put it into words.
