Cool Michael Jackson - Off the Wall

Michael Jackson became a superstar by singing with his brothers throughout the seventies, but he also pursued a solo career on the side, enjoying his first solo hit in 1971 at the age of thirteen with "Got To Be There." In 1979, Jackson, at 21, was all grown up - or so we thought - and made the album of his career, Off the Wall.



Produced by jazz legend Quincy Jones, Off the Wall sold eight million copies at a time when the record industry was in the doldrums. It produced four hit singles - "Rock With You," "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough," the title song, and "She's Out Of My Life" - at a time when pop albums yielded no more than two or three singles. Much of the album was danceable, but it wasn't really disco - it was traditional soul all the way. One song was even called "Burn This Disco Out."

As Jimmy Guterman later wrote, Off the Wall was the only time Michael Jackson convincingly presented himself as an adult.

Unhappy Don Henley arrested on drug charge

In December 1979, all of the Eagles's hedonism of the seventies came to a crashing blow. That month, Don Henley (pictured below) was arrested for possessing drugs and involving a young girl in his shenanigans. It was a tattier and even more regrettable end to the Eagles than The Long Run.

Exclamation The Seventies End

Musically, the seventies had come in with the roar of a tiger, and they went out with the meow of a kitten. Most rockers had been wasted along the way, and those still standing had been burned out. Traditional rock and roll had degenerated into corporate pop rock. Disco burned itself out with too many novelty hits and too much exposure. Punk was dead; New Wave was beginning to wane. In the new decade of the 1980's, many of the biggest bands of the seventies - the Eagles, Led Zeppelin, Steely Dan, the Doobie Brothers - would soon break up under varying circumstances. Elton John would almost be forgotten, and the Bee Gees wouldn't even be able to get arrested.

In the week ending December 29, 1979, the Billboard singles chart Rupert Holmes topped included Barbra Streisand and Donna Summer's duet "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)", which seemed a perfect kissoff to the seventies, and Styx's overblown power ballad "Babe." The hostages in Iran were nowhere near getting out of that country. The Soviet Union's Red Army had just marched into Afghanistan, destroying detente and causing a U.S.-led boycott of the Moscow Olympics. On Monday, December 31, 1979, Americans wearily watched the ball drop in Times Square.

The decade was over.

And so, now to the 1980's. . . .
