The sad news on a newspaper stand.
Michael Jackson was one of my first heroes as a child. Over the years this has become forgotten because of all the negative hype that's grown with him. When I heard the news of his death, at around 12am GMT this morning, childhood thoughts came back to me and I remembered feelings that I've not felt since then.
Regardless of what has really happened (or not) with regards to allegations made towards him, there's no doubt that he was one of the world's greatest musicians, a legend. I doubt if there will be anyone that will literally be as much of a 'superstar' as Michael Jackson was.
