Remembering Michael Jackson On What Would Have Been His 55th Birthday

Michael Jackson died four years ago on June 25, 2009.

Though his sudden death from cardiac arrest caused by a lethal combination of prescription drugs shocked friends, family and fans, his iconic legacy has continued to live on in the entertainment industry.

Today (Aug. 29) the singer would have turned 55. Throughout his career he changed his infamous style constantly, but in 1975 he was still a young child star sporting this original look.
