Just thought I would make this post to talk about the death of Michael Jackson.
There are not very many performers that cross generational lines the way that he did--my 16 year old daughter called me from work to tell me he had died.
As strange as Michael Jackson had become and all the legal problems he had aside. He was a truly talented artist. The innovations that he made in music and dance will be remembered for years to come.
I have to say that I am sad, so many of my memories from childhood and my teenage years have a Michael Jackson song attached to them. Watching the Jackson Five on television. My first slow dance in Junior High School to "She's out of my life" Dancing at school dances to lots of Michael Jackson songs. My brother playing the Thriller album for hours at our house.
This is a sad week for losing people from my growing up years---Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett and now Michael Jackson.
Anyway, if anyone has any thoughts, please share them here.
