Michael Jackson Dead at age 50!

Michael Jackson, the innovator of the Moon Walk and the unbelievable style and dance of Thriller is dead today at age fifty. June 25, 2009 will surely go down as a day of remembrance and mourning for this controversial but much talented performer. Like him or love him, Jackson was one of a kind in the musical industry. Born August 28, 1958 in Gary, Indiana, at age eight he appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show with the Jackson Five. Winning 8 Grammy's for his Thriller Album in 1982 it went on to sell over 26 million copies. He died at 3:15 Pacific Time at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, California. He was taken there by ambulance while unconscious after suffering cardiac arrest at home but three hours later was pronounced dead. Like Elvis, Michael will be remembered by his peers, if not a King, certainly a Prince of Pop.
