Today would have been Michael Jackson's 51st birthday, and it still seems surreal to talk about him in the past tense.
As the events of his last day begin to unravel and the stories get out, we're learning more about what led up to his untimely death.
But it still doesn't change the fact that when he was onstage, he was the King Of Pop and a first class entertainer.
But it speaks to the fact I was spoiled. I didn't realize the quality type of music I had growing up and the sheer volume of music legends that graced my teen and early adult years. I'm becoming aware of it as these peeps leave us and what we have currently pales in comparison to them.
And it's sad to realize that not only is Michael Jackson gone, there won't be another singer like him in my lifetime.
