Michael Jackson ,Cork 1988
It is 21 years since Colly and I decided to drive from Limerick to Cork’s Pairc Ui Chaoimh to see a musical genius ,the king of Pop in a battered run down Renault 5 .The majority of our friends though we were mad ,as Jackson’s music did not fit in with their choice of artist.
Jackson had to be seen as he was a legend then in 1988 ,The Off the Wall album was the spark for me which I still think is his best (personal choice here ).ABC 123 I Grew up with that one from the Jacksons .
Another music genius gone to the great gig in the sky..joining hendrix,gaye,lennon etc…
