Thriller is the best-selling album of all time with over 100 million copies sold worldwide. It’s also ranked #20 in Rolling Stone‘s list of the Top 500 Albums of All Time. It won a record-breaking 8 Grammys in 1984, including Album of the Year. Of the 9 tracks on the record, 7 of them were released as singles and all 7 charted in the top 10 of the Billboard charts. Thriller is the gold standard for pop music.
Things are about to get spooky. Let’s take a late night stroll across the Colorado Street Bridge (aka “Suicide Bridge”) in Pasadena. It’s beautiful. It’s scenic. It’s supposedly haunted. Over 100 people have ended their lives by jumping off of it. After the stroll, let’s grab drinks at The Old Towne Pub, a dive bar with live music and a great selection of beers on tap.
