Former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach and QUEENSRŸCHE singer Geoff Tate have commented on the passing of pop music legend Michael Jackson, who died Thursday (June 25) at age 50.

Sebastian Bach: "Another angel down... I am very sorry for my friend Jermaine's [Jackson, Michael's brother] loss. I lived with Jermaine for three weeks last year [during the filming of the second season of CMT's hit series, 'Gone Country'], and we talked about his brother frequently. He said to me, 'When you cut up my brother, you're cutting up me'. I feel for the Jackson family, because I know all too well how they feel. Unfortunately."

Geoff Tate (via Noisecreep): "I grew up listening to Michael Jackson, watching him and his brothers perform on television. He made performing seem easy and inspired my generation with his music and his grace. He was one of a kind and will be missed but his music will live forever."
