Michael Jackson RIP

Not much to add to what has already been said and will be said about Michael. I had the good fortune to do some work for Michael Jackson in the good times and he was kind enough to arrange for me to see a show at Wembley Arena in London when he was at the peak of his adult career.

You forget how many hits that he had until you go to a show, and you really don’t grasp how much creative energy was crammed into that body until you saw him live. I realize this doesn’t count for much in our technology oriented society, but that live performance simply cannot be equalled by any recording.

You get one of these artists in a generation, I think. I’m looking forward to the next one.
