Where Were You... ?

... on the day Michael Jackson died?

One year has passed since the King of Pop passed away.  Tell us your story.  What did his life and work mean to you?  And how did you feel when you found out it was over?

On Friday, we mark the first anniversary of MJ's death.

Shaye Areheart, an editor who worked with Michael Jackson on his official autobiography, "MoonWalk," will share her memories with guest host Tony Cox.

Grammy award-winning music producer Bruce Swedien, who worked with Jackson on some of his most defining projects (including Thriller), will offer his reflections on the blog.  Swedien says 'just good enough' was never good enough for MJ.

And journalist Bryan Monroe, the last person to interview Jackson, remembers the King.
