Happy Birthday to Michael Joseph Jackson

Today is the 56th birthday of the greatest entertainer of our era. Here are pictures I took at the 1984 Grammy Awards at the Shrine Auditorium and the Victory Tour at Dodger Stadium. Impressive as are the recording collaboration of  the Jackson/Jones team, there simply is no exaggeration one could give to describe Michael Jackson’s performance in the Victory Tour. It was, without a doubt the most spectacular thing I have ever seen on any stage. Today, 30 August is his birthday. Happy Birthday, Micahel Joseph Jackson. We do sincerely miss you.
