Brief postscript on Michael Jackson.  There's an excellent article in today's (7/01) Wall Street Journal by Jim Fusilli (one of the best music writers around) that delves into the making of Off The Wall and Thriller in a very 33 1/3 manner.  Who played what.  How the tracks came together.  Interesting little tidbits.  All focused on the music.  A nice antidote to all of the media madness.  And when you separate the cream and wheat from the hype and chaff, Big Star produced in their short time more minutes of great recorded music than MJ recorded over his solo career.  Hard to believe...just like the fact that Wilt Chamberlain NEVER fouled out in 1045 NBA games.  Use that little nugget to win a few bets at your family barbeque this weekend
