His passing only seems to be the turning of yet another page in a tragic story. The guy was King for a time but for whatever reason he apparently lost all his marbles and became a side-show more remembered for legend surrounding his behaviour than for his actual music.
Like his passing...this is kinda sad.
I might be wrong but I believer there are now more people alive that are familiar with his demise than can remember his glory days with his family and the Thriller album.
[While I wouldn't ever claim to have been a Jacko fan, yeah...I did get Thriller back when I was a kid and signed up to the BMC cassette deal. You know..the one where you mailed in one penny and got 10 free cassettes but had to buy 10 more at regular price over the next two years? I can't complain though...I got turned on to Rush, U2, Johnny Cash and many others during those years.]
More like Burn In Hell, you child molesting creep.
Proof please. Acquitted TWICE of it. Dodgy testimony from the kids and their family during trial. Inconsistencys that smelled like a money fishing expedition. Was he pretty messed up besides this? Yes. But these trials drained him physically, emotionally, and financially. He's still a musical legend and deserves respect.RIP MJ, you will be sorely missed.
