Remembering Michael Jackson today, who would have turned 53. From Quincy Jones’ piece for Newsweek in 2009:
He was a different kind of entertainer. He’d work for hours, perfecting every lick, gesture, and movement so that they came together precisely the way they were intended to. We achieved heights in the ’80s that I can humbly say may never be reached again, and reshaped the music business forever.
