Mayor Nutter On Michael Jackson's Death

Mayor Nutter today said he was saddened by Michael Jackson's death, noting that he grew up with the music of the King of Pop.

"I go back literally to the Jackson 5," Nutter said. "My sister and I used to listen to all that music."

Nutter said he also enjoyed Jackson's music during his "Mixmaster Mike" DJ days at a club when he was a college student. "When I was in the nightclub you had "Thriller" and "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough," Nutter said. "Those were incredible dance hits."

Nutter said he downloaded three Jackson songs to his MP3 player yesterday -- "Billie Jean," "Man in the Mirror," and "Got To Be There."
