RIP Michael Jackson (29 August 1958 25 June 2009).
I hate jumping on bandwagons and inflicting my viewers with something that's been done ad nauseum, but you can't grow up listening to somebody and not feel a sense of loss at hearing of their passing, either. In an attempt to make amends, I picked a reference that nobody else was likely to draw. I'm not sure if he ever really grew up -
Whatever else he might have been, Michael Jackson was the King of Pop, brimming with talent. If nowhere else, his death will be greatly felt in the musical community.
