Janie Hickok Siess would not describe herself as Michael Jackson's No. 1 fan. But she does feel nostalgic when she remembers watching him on "The Ed Sullivan Show," dancing to "Off The Wall" in clubs, playing "Thriller" continuously on vinyl and being amazed when he debuted the white glove at the Grammy Awards and the Moonwalk on "Motown 25."
"We grew up with Michael Jackson … but then he turned into this weird person. The music sort of stopped, and the only time we paid attention to him when he was on the news for all the wrong reasons," Siess said.
