Love him or hate him, you can not deny his profound influence on the worlds of liquor. It is with mourning that I pass on the news of Michael Jackson’s passing as announced on http://www.allaboutbeer.com/
For clarification: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Jackson_(writer)
Mr. Jackson was a world renowned author who had devoted his life to liquors of all sorts, though he is most famous for his work in the Beer and Whiskies circles. His insight, wisdom, and humour will be missed… even if he could be (what Jim Murray referred to as) a “prat”.
