RIP Michael Jackson (1958-2009)

Michael Jackson, the King of Pop is dead. You could blame it on a cardiac arrest, prescription drugs, the moonlight, or the boogie, BUT we may have had something to do with it.

Fraserhead played “Thriller” on the show last week (in amongst some Justice). What we have found over the years is that when we have played (out of the blue) older artists who we haven’t played for quite a while they tend to die the following week. So far this curse has struck Johnny Cash, James Brown, Desmond Dekker, Hunter S Thompson to name just a few.

Please accept our sincere apologies. But if there’s anyone you would like bumped off please contact us and we’ll see what we can do. The Herb Whisperer is very keen for a Phil Collins retrospective.

Here’s MJ and his brothers from 1978’s “Blame it on the boogie”…
