A Michael Moment

I had to make a note of the untimely death of Michael Jackson. I can not profess to being a fan, but (here's where I date myself) I come from a generation hugely affected by his music, when to me he was in his prime with Thriller breaking all kinds of new ground. As teenagers we couldn't get enough of him and his music, my friends had his posters on their walls (I wasn't allowed) and way back then, before he got overly fond of the surgeon's knife he was soooo cute. Billy Jean was my favourite Michael song.

So I feel saddened today, it is the passing of an era, and the world will seem a blander place without his flamboyance and eccentricities.
