Zola's Intermission Take 14 - June 25th, 2009

Wow some very sad news today, not once, but twice.

We've lost two more special people on the planet,

Farrah Fawcet, 62, passed away at 9:28 a.m at St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica. By her side was Ryan O'Neal, her longtime friend and lover and friend Alana Stewart. Perhaps best remembered for her role as Jill Munroe on Charlie's Angels, she will also be remembered for her wing tipped hair style of the late 70's and 80's. I know all of us teen girls wanted our hair to look just like hers.

She was really good as an actress in the 1984 movie, The Burning Bed.

And on another sad note music star, Michael Jackson, 50, died of an alleged heart attack at his home. Fans gathered outside of UCLA Medical Center awaiting the confirmation of his death.

If you were lucky enough to have seen Michael Jackson in concert, you know what a treat that was. I was fortunate to see him at his 1988 "BAD" concert tour. I must say, it was one of the best and most entertaining concerts I have ever been to.

Though we've seen Michael go through many changes in the last few decades, he will always be rememebered as one of the greatest ledgends of the music world.
