On the passing of a king...

"Thriller" was one of the first albums I ever listened to (that and Kenny Rogers' "The Gambler" in my parents' silver Oldsmobile - the only tape deck we had). I remember watching the "Thriller" video at my cousin Dave's birthday party and being scared of the dark for the next two years. The first time I heard Eddie Van Halen play guitar was on the solo for "Beat it." And of course, wirthout MJ there would be no Weird Al, one of my greatest influences! RIP Michael you crazy bastard. I hope you, Elvis, Jim Morrison and Tupac are all somwhere enjoying fried banana sandwiches, a bottle of whiskey, a spliff, and the bones of the Elephant Man.
