The Day the Pop Music Stopped

It is odd to think that certain events you will remember where you were for the rest of your life... well I am fairly certain that the passing of MJ will be one I remember for some time due not only to how sudden it was but the fact that I found out from a drunken Northern Irishmen in the city of Derry who met me as I walked into the pub with the line...

"Michael Jackson is dead.... he just died.... believe me... wait ask her (points to girl on phone outside pub and she agrees)"

The news went on to tell all that night but needless to say it is memorable.
