Well, Prince is also an iconic legend, not on the level of Michael though.

Bootsy Collins, Larry Graham, Sly Stone, George Clinton, ...
Then, there's also whoever are last original members of legendary groups/bands:
Eddie Levert (The O'Jays), Lionel Ritchie/Walter Orange..,(The Commodores) Maurice White... (EWF), Otis Williams (The Temptations), The Manhattans, The Stylistics, Teddy Pendergrass (Harold Melvin & The BlueNotes), etc..
I don't think there's any original member left living of "The Chi-Lites" but I'm not sure.
IMO, probably because of my age, (lol) there are many "Legends" left around. They just don't have the worldwide "ICONIC" memory of MJ. But I will be affected by all of their passings. These people touched generations too.
