Pop star Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, was pronounced dead after arriving at UCLA Medical Center in a coma. He was 50. I saw him perform at his peak at Anaheim stadium in the mid-80s. He will not be going on his planned comeback tour. Thriller is still one of my fave dance albums of all time. Here's the John Landis video, which was top-of-the-line at the time, along with the music videos for Billie Jean and Beat It. No, he was not like other guys.

The old rule of thumb in journalism: celebrity deaths come in threes. So the first one was Ed McMahon, followed by Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson. The LAT posted a Jackson photo gallery.
