R.I.P Michael Jackson

Michael Joseph Jackson
August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009

"His Music Will Live Forever" is featured on Michael Jackson's webpage as of last Friday.

His music will live forever indeed. I belong to the generation that, back in the days, a party was no party unless the MJ cassette was in the player. The taste of canned orange juice without gas, thousands of moonwalking attenpts in front of the mirror, dad's Ray-Ban shades and the rewind sound on the walkman...

And this is how we will always remember him, a king without a doubt.

For those of you with a sudden urge to find out more about the man behind the star, Martin Bashir's attempt is a good insight (2003) although heavily questionned by many (myself included), as to the image projected. Also, if you go into all the trouble of watching Bashir's work, check out the Jackson version too (Living with Michael Jackson Take Two).
