Much ink has been spilt about Michael Jackson in the past few years, the man’s life has been opened up, dissected, carved up and consumed by both adoring fans and perennial haters alike.
Michael made a lot of mistakes, a lot being of the indefensible kind. But his musical talent and genius was undeniable – a lot of us practically grew up listening to his songs. Eventually, we moved on to more “cooler” stuff, and we vehemently denied ever being fans of his. We grew more distant, repulsed, no doubt, by the bizarre circus that his life had become.
It was with complete shock that I read about Michael’s death today. His death brings back a lot of memories, some good, some bad, but all unforgettable. So, wherever you are Mike, thank you for the music. And RIP.
