As we all know, Michael Jackson- the King of Pop- passed away suddenly yesterday from a cardiac attack. Now he is moonwalking his way to the big Duder in the sky.
Michael Jackson wasn’t the typical Dude’s Dude, but he certainly earned his stripes making millions of people around the world boogie. There is little doubt that he was a strange, tragically flawed human being, but this Duder is left to wonder: didn’t he deserve better?
Even the most staunch Duders can admit that when such classics as Thriller, Billie Jean and Smooth Criminal start spinning, you can’t help but hit the D-floor. A strange man in strange times, MJ will be remembered by Duders everywhere as one of the truly gifted musicians of our time.
Here’s to you M.J.- this week’s honorary Duder- for rocking the socks off of Dudes everywhere.
