You would have to be living under an extremely large rock to not have heard about the passing of Michael Jackson yesterday, due to a heart attack.
It's interesting that depending on your view, Michael Jackson was either a world renowned pop star or the sickest person alive. In my opinion, there is merit to both of those ideas.
If Michael Jackson stepped out of the limelight once the Jackson 5 folded, odds are we would be mourning a music legend today, rather than joking about his various public missteps, some more serious and law breaking than others.
But all in all, he was talented.
