Waking up to the news that Michael Jackson had passed away there was blanket playing of Michael Jackson songs on every radio station on my way to work.
Me and Mrs Cox had tickets for one of his concerts in August and was really looking forward to seeing him in concert again as I last saw him in his Dangerous tour when I was a little wipper snapper.
Of all the tributes that I heard this morning there was one that I particularly remember from a lady from Southend. She said:
"Michael was kknown as the Peter Pan of pop and how ironic that he will now nevergrow old"
For all the wall to wall coverage that there has been I think this sumed it up pretty well.
