Michael Jackson is now 50 years old. No matter what Jackson is more than the artist behind the greatest-selling album of all time in Thriller. The child molestation scandals and numerous sensational tabloid headlines can never erase the fact that he is true legend in the music industry and one of pop’s greatest icons. In some ways, being a two-time inductee in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (as both a singles artist and member of The Jackson 5) understates his influence.
I remember (and yes I am dating myself) running to the television screen because the Jackson 5 were on the Ed Sullivan show. Wow, those were the days.
