Michael Jackson RIP 6/25/2009
This post started out as kind of a joke with Ken, but after thinking about it for a while and listening to all the radio stations that were playing his music in tribute, I realized that it is a great loss to the music loving public. Yes, MJ got really strange in recent years, but it didn’t change the fact that he could write music, perform, and entertain the masses. My favorite MJ album has got to be 1979’s “Off the Wall”. I remember listening to the record at my Uncle Calvin’s (he works at Garrett now) house when I was a kid. I must have been 7 or 8 years old when I discovered it. I still have the original pressings of “Off the Wall” and “Thriller” on vinyl. If you like MJ’s music, put your homophobic fears aside and share your favorite song or album in the comments.
