Dear vintage lovers,
Today we go back in time, until the seventies. In this decade we saw the deaths of Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix but also the rising of the King of pop, Michael Jackson. From the Jackson 5, Michael Jackson led one of the most tumultuous careers of any modern entertainer.
As a scrawny kid from Gary, Ind., in child-sized bell-bottoms and a radiant smile, Michael Jackson first stepped onto the scene at age 11 as part of the unforgettable Jackson 5. The Motown group, one of the biggest pop acts of the 1970s, was made up of Jackson and his four brothers Jackie, Tito, Jermaine (later replaced by Randy) and Marlon. (Sisters Rebbie, La Toya and Janet did not join the group.)
The Vietnam War officially ended when Saigon fell to Communist forces. Saturday Night Live began its 40-years-and-counting run on NBC, and Steven Spielberg’s Jaws gave birth to the modern blockbuster. In this decade, Stevie Wonder won 3 grammys!
