Michael Jackson Dead at Age 50
All major news organizations have confirmed that Michael Jackson died this afternoon (Pacific Time) after suffering cardiac arrest. His comeback was poised to begin in London next month with 50 sold-out concerts. Of course MJ songs were a staple at 8TRAX and when some of his older videos were played, the club would come to a near-standstill as people stopped what they were doing and just watched the screen.
Friday Update: Last night at The Groove former 8TRAX DJ Doc played a LOT of Michael Jackson music and videos. It's what the crowd wanted. Another large crowd on hand for 80's Night.
YouTube has disabled the embedding of Michael Jackson videos at this time so we give you this link instead. Arguably one of the top music videos ever made but one of just one hit after another on MJ's Thriller album. Spend about 13-1/2 minutes watching this:
