I know this is a beer blog and I promised myself I wouldn't post anything on here that didn't have to do with beer but I had to get this out. Today is quite a sad day for me. Michael Jackson had a big impact on my life. Anyone that know me personally knows that my whole life has revolved around music. Thriller was the first album and tape that I ever owned. I have fond memories of listening to Thriller on my front porch in Medford, MA. I played that tape until it wore out. I remember watching the Thriller video when it premiered and being scared shitless as a little kid and having nightmares about it but also knowing it was the most amazing thing I had ever seen. I don't know one person that dislikes Michael Jackson's music. My love of music started with Michael Jackson. I don't think my life would have gone the way it has or taken me to the places I've been without him. Michael, I thank you for making great music that had such an impact on my life. I drink this Founders Double Trouble right now in your honor. Everyone should raise a glass for him tonight. You will be missed.
