Michael Jackson has passed away.
50 years old.
He was born in the same month as Eric...and Madonna.
I am surprisingly saddened.
I know that the life and times of MJ had taken a serious detour to the weird and freaky...but it is the Thriller era that I remember. I was a Jr High Student...loving to listen to and wearing out my Thiller "tape".
Very sad. For his 3 young children, as well.
And Farrah Fawcett.
Losing her battle with cancer. Eric tied it back to her being like his mother...who passed away in April. He tends to tie most things back to his mom...the pain and grief is still so raw and painful.
Two American icons...gone on the same day. So sad.
