Rest In Peace Michael- The King of Pop

Maybe it's the flashback of memories from my youth, when everyone it seemed was talking about, listening too and wanting to "be like Mike" w-a-y before Jordan.
The moonwalk, parachute pants, black leather matching pants and jacket, and pink shirts were suddenly cool.

The news of Michael Jackson's passing hit me out of the blue today and I am honestly surprised to admit that I'm just a little bit sad. Not that I was a fan of his music later in life as my tastes today run more towards Blink 182, Rancid, Evanescense, Daughtry, and Nickleback but it is unmistakable the impact he had on pop music making Thriller the greatest selling album in human history and producing what is to this day one of the greatest music videos of all time in Thriller. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

That album you have at the bottom - My Grandma bought that back when I was young for us to listen to when we went to her house. It was the *&^% back in the day. RIP Mr. Jackson
