    I'm not a fan, but Rest in Peace...

    He died from heart failure this night, 50 years old. His death is confirmed by both doctors and his family.

    - My fav MJ song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSqo17o2a1w
    - No matter what he did or didnt, he was a legendary artist


    Ben, the two of us need look no more
    We both found what we were looking for
    With a friend to call my own
    I'll never be alone
    And you, my friend, will see
    You've got a friend in me
    (you've got a friend in me)

    Ben, you're always running here and there
    You feel you're not wanted anywhere
    If you ever look behind
    And don't like what you find
    There's one thing you should know
    You've got a place to go
    (you've got a place to go)

    I used to say "I" and "me"
    Now it's "us", now it's "we"
    I used to say "I" and "me"
    Now it's "us", now it's "we"
    Ben, most people would turn you away
    I don't listen to a word they say
    They don't see you as I do
    I wish they would try to
    I'm sure they'd think again
    If they had a friend like Ben
    (a friend) Like Ben
    (like Ben) Like Ben

    Hmmm...having grown up in the same part of the country he did, and he wasnt that much older than me, and being a musician myself, I always had a fond place in my heart for the Jackson's.

    I was never a huge fan of his music, but when greatness is there, you have to aknowledge it. And is album Thriller is still one of the best albums ever made. I mean that thing was a hit machine.

    It is really quite sad how he declined in recent years.

    We lost a legend in the industry. We lost a man who, like my boys, KISS, shaped and inspired a whole generation of musicians.

    Before there was Michael Jordan, Before there was Tiger Woods, Before there was anyone else, there was Michael Jackson.

    RIP Bro! You are finally at rest.
