The King of Pop wasn’t the kind of guy who’d stroll into a dive like the Mouffe. With the outpouring of sentiment following his untimely death, though, even the Mouffe has to pay tribute to Michael Jackson.
Much of that sentiment has included the phrase “soundtrack of my life” – which didn’t exactly fit my life. But as I’ve heard snippets of the old Jackson 5 hits from my sock-hop days, I’ve reconsidered. Man, Michael eclipsed Elvis and James Brown when he was 12 years old! As you follow the progression of these live clips, you witness the evolution of a truly great performer, though I wonder if you can call it “growing up.”
