I was hoping this wouldn't be his last unconfirmed death (remember all those other ones?), but it turns out this is the one that would be confirmed. What a sad day! First it was Farrah Fawcett (of Charlie's Angels fame) earlier today, and now Michael.
I have many memories of Michael Jackson and his music. In almost every school social, disco, and ball you could expect his music to be played! Moonwalk competitions would be held, impersonators would perform...complete Michael Jackson craziness.
I could also remember his tour to Auckland in the mid-90's (I didn't go but saw it on TV), especially his shiny gold spacesuit, and all those crazy screaming people!
Anyway, as someone somewhat distastefully commented on the NZ Herald Your Views section,
"Michael Jackson didn't just touch the kids, he touched the whole world with his music."
Rest in peace Michael Jackson, and may your music live on!
