    I just heard online that MJ has died after apparently going into cardiac arrest. Very sad. I think he was pretty much a tortured soul.

    Poor guy, I always thought he was a "couple cans short of a six pack", but I always enjoyed his music.

    It's all that CNN is talking about. Huge crowds gathering at the hospital and his home.

    yes, it does. i liked michael's music and i think farrah did a brave and wonderful thing letting the camera follow her and showing the true cruel, cruel reality of cancer.

    both are going to be sorely missed.

    Not really ratings say only a paltry 4-5 million people bothered to watch it. Mostly b/c in the end it sucked....


    back to programming....
    RIP Mikey!

    My dad was a huge fan of McDonald's way back when before he died and I guess it started to rub off on me as a child because I loved his "Do You Remember The Time" song and music video where he spinned and turned into sound, but it didn't stick afterwards I guess. As I grew up, I quickly lost interest in Michael and his music and lost respect for him.

    I'm so glad I got to see Michael live twice at the old Wembley Stadium. First in 1988 on the Bad tour and again in 1993 on the Dangerous tour. His shows were always excellent.

    RIP

    Michael Jackson is only one of a large group of deaths over the past few months.

    In the past few days have been Johnny Carson side-kick Ed McMahon, Farrah and now Michael Jackson. Remember we have also lost Dom DeLuise, Bea Arthur, and one of the Carradines. I also understand that former News Anchor Walter Cronkite is very ill, bed ridden, and hear his end as well.

    June 2009 may be remembered as a month of losses.

    Let's remember all of these people for the contributions that they made and the lives that they enriched with the gift of music, laughter, information and entertainment.
