GGGarth Richardson has produced albums for such bands as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against The Machine, Atreyu, L7, Rise Against, and From Autumn To Ashes, and is the son of Jack Richardson, famed producer for The Guess Who, Badfinger, Bob Seger, and others. GGGarth commented to Noisecreep about the passing of Michael Jackson.

"A lot of us got to see Micheal Jackson grow up in the limelight. He changed our life with his music and talent. It is very rare that someone has the gift to touch our soul. Michael had that gift. There will never be another person like him in our life time. He will be missed."

Michael Jackson died Thursday at the age of 50.
