Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

Michael Jackson "resurrected from the dead" for tour
The magic of Michael Jackson live in concert
It might sound like an episode from Ripley's Believe It Or
Not, but this is actually creepy. Music-news reports that of all the
performances that came out of last weekend's Coachella Festival, the most
talked about was probably that of the late-Tupac Shakur. The rapper was
murdered in Las Vegas in 1996 and, to appear on the festival stage, a complex
hologram was assembled at a reported cost of between $100,000 and $400,000.
According to reports in Britain's Sun and at E! Online, the Jacksons want to
commission a similar hologram of their late-brother Michael to take with them
on their upcoming tour. Brother Jackie told E! "It could have been Michael
- absolutely. Wouldn't that be wonderful? As a matter of fact, we had that idea
two years ago for Michael's Cirque du Soleil show." It's unknown whether
it would really be possible to put together such a complex project by the start
of the Jacksons' Unity Tour on 18 June in Louisville.
