Somehow the folks at West Coast Sound
, Rocks Off's sister music blog over at L.A. Weekly
, have scored the hottest ticket in show business in years: a ticket to Michael Jackson's funeral Tuesday at Los Angeles' Staples Center. So far Stevie Wonder, Jackson's old Motown boss Berry Gordy, Brooke Shields, Usher, Kobe Bryant, John Mayer, Mariah Carey and many more are scheduled to appear. Weekly
music editor Randall Roberts promises to Twitter from the ceremony "when it's not considered vulgar to do so."
Like a lot of you, we suspect, Rocks Off will be watching the funeral - which begins at noon Houston time - and linking and updating as often as we can. For now, enjoy this video of Houstonians learning the "Thriller" dance at Discovery Green last Thursday. We really can't watch this enough.
