Michael Jackson - Remember His Music

Michael Jackson died yesterday at age 50, and the news left me strangely unmoved. No shock, or grief, just a nagging hum of nostalgia for the days when Jackson’s notoriety was primarily to do with his incredible music, rather than plastic surgery or out-of-court settlements. We must remember that Michael Jackson's name can be said in the same breath as Sinatra, Presley, and The Beatles. He's up there with the absolute cream of the crop of musical greats and I can only hope that decades from now people will remember his music, his dancing and his funk and not his drug abuse, deteriorating white face, or allegations of pedophilia.

Rest in peace, MJ.

First time I saw him was on the Andy Williams show. We were still black and white in the UK then, and there was nothing like the J5 in the UK at the time - still isn't. It was a real WOW!

Yes - RIP Michael.
