Here's another piece of sad news today. I grew up with Michael Jackson's tunes and music in 1980s and 90s in Iran. We had a hard time getting his latest albums, CDs or tapes. I remember watching his stuff when VCRs and CD players back in Iran were banned. Michael Jackson really kept us sane in those days. I remember the first VHS tape we played in our brand new illegal/banned VCR machine was a tape full of Jackson's recent tour clips a friend had brought from Germany. I think many in Iran lived with Michael Jackson's music secretly and I personally admired his talents so much. Too bad such a talented man went to waste by doing all those weird stuff later. I'll resume posting the news on Iran shortly.
