I just picked this up from Jay Brooks excellent beer blog:

Haven’t gotten it confirmed yet. Emailed Roger Protz at Camra, in the UK, but no response so far. So I’m going to withhold an obit or eulogy, pending receipt of solid news.

Michael Jackson Passes Away
by J @ 6:48 am. Filed under News, Europe, Great Britain

I just got word from a friend and colleague that Michael Jackson passed away yesterday in his home. He got the word from Roger Protz, a beer writer in England, that he had been found in his tub. I have no details at this time but will update this when I can find out more information. This is very sad day for the beer world. Michael was larger than life and his influence cannot be overestimated. To say he will be missed seems a great understatement.
