when you saw Michael Jackson performing "Billie Jean" at the Motown 25. I remember where I was, it was on my birthday and I was a freshman in high school. Me and my brother were in front of the tv in our house on McClernon Street.
The moon walk, the crotch grabbing, the glove....it was beginning of the Michael Jackson that so many of us remember.
on MTV....in the summer time you couldn't get me and my brother out of the house...we were always camped around the MTV trying to catch it when it came on.....for those of you who are younger...there was no Tivo back then.
Oh my gosh...we were quite a ways away, but you could feel the energy in the stadium, the excitement....and when he came on stage...it was deafening. I don't think any of us sat down during the entire concert.
As a teenager of the 80's, I'm sad today.
