Michael Jackson died after being taken to a hospital on Thursday after suffering cardiac arrest, according to multiple reports including the Los Angeles Times and the Associated Press. He was not breathing when paramedics arrived at his home and had been in a coma at the hospital. Whatever one can think about Michael, i think we can remember all the good times we had at Disneyland with Captain Eo, and most of all, his great great music, specially when Quincy Jones was his producer.
Michael always said that "he was Peter Pan" and real Peter Pan don't necessarily live old. Michael's love for Disneyland was so sincere that, as we know, he built his own Magic Kingdom at his "Neverland". I think it's fair to say that, of all the Peter Pan who exist on this planet, Michael was the only one who have "pushed" his "Peter Pan syndrome" to the very end - he also was the only one who have no limits - financially speaking - to do it and to escape reality. This was his destiny.
Very sad news, really. We love you, Michael, wherever you are.
Below, a rare video of Michael at Disneyland Paris in 1992 or so, at a time where he was persona grata.
And here is the full Captain EO movie.
