What I remember from the deaths of these famous people.

  • Michael Jackson
    • I worked in a small shop at the time and we had BBC Radio 2 playing all the time and they wouldn't stop talking about it and played his music incessantly for days.
  • Steve Irwin
    • I came to school in the morning and someone mentioned that an Australian guy had died. I said, half jokingly, "I hope it wasn't Steve Irwin!" Yeeaah....
  • Princess Diana
    • I was really young but I remember it being on the news.
