Michael Jackson 1958-2009

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.


  1. The blogosphere permits this exception as most of us too miss the King of Pop. May MJ RIP. Good picture too btw.
