I was reading an article about Governor Deval Patricks support on the state’s first-in-the-nation ban of the powerful new painkiller Zohydro. It made me think of Michael Jackson and how he died because of an overdose of his medications.  So I decided that today’s music choices would be all about Michael Jackson.  Hope you enjoy!

The tow-headed toddler wears a polka-dot dress and a red ribbon that holds a spray of blond hair. Her glamorous mother mimics her hairstyle and serious expression.

The child is Peaches Geldof, who posted the snapshot on Instagram a day before her sudden death. And the woman is Paula Yates, who shared with her daughter a TV career, a weakness for musicians, a history of hard partying and a tragic end.


Thirteen years before Geldof, 25, was found dead under unexplained circumstances, Yates killed herself with a heroin overdose while in the grips of a heartsick depression brought on by the hanging of her lover, INXS frontman Michael Hutchence.

Peaches was emotionally scarred by the death of her mother — who had left her father, rocker and activist Bob Geldof, for the edgy Australian singer — and vowed that she would always be there for her two sons.

“Even if it’s an archaic idea I want Astala to have a mummy and daddy together for ever,” she said of her first-born child in a 2012 interview with the Daily Mail’s Elle magazine.

“It’s a commitment. I want to be a good wife, a good mother, a good person.”

Astala is just 23 months old; his brother, Phaedra is 7 months old.

Peaches was 11 when her mother died. She and her sisters, Pixie and Fifi Trixibelle, had been raised in the English countryside by Yates, who met Bob Geldof when he was the lead singer of the Boomtown Rats.

In 1995, when Peaches was 7, Yates left her husband for Hutchence, and as a bitter divorce and custody battle played out, Yates had a fourth child, Heavenly Haarani Tiger Lily, with her new partner.

A year later, the romance came to a shocking end when Hutchence was found dead in a Sydney hotel room. A devastated Yates insisted that he accidentally killed himself during a sex game, but the coroner’s verdict was suicide.

The entire tragic drama was played out on a very public stage, and Peaches once said she was “very much old enough to see what was going on.”

“I didn’t start grieving for my mother properly until I was maybe 16.”

“I was completely aware of the whole situation, the transition of my mother who was amazing, who wrote books on parenting, who gave us this idyllic childhood in Kent; and who then turned into this heartbroken shell of a woman who was just medicating to get through the day,” she said in 2012.

After Hutchence’s death, Yates struggled with depression. In a 1998 magazine interview, she admitted: “I’m broken, I don’t have any fight.”

Yates did stints in psychiatric and rehab clinics and reportedly tried to kill herself twice. On September 17, 2000, she was found dead in her bed in London. Despite her emotional distress, the coroner found she did not commit suicide but died from an accidental heroin overdose.

Peaches Geldof said she didn’t cry at the funeral.

“I couldn’t express anything because I was just numb to it all. I didn’t start grieving for my mother properly until I was maybe 16,” she told Elle.

Before long, the teenager was following her mother into the public eye with a modeling and TV career. In 2008, she married U.S. musician Max Drummey in Las Vegas, but the couple split the next year.

She was dogged by reports of drug use and in 2010 lost a modeling contract after nude photos surfaced.

Geldof said the rumors were exaggerations.

“I did experiment with drugs, I did get drunk and go to parties, but I was never that wild,” she said two years ago. “I could have been, I could have let myself spiral but all the time I remembered what happened to my mum.”

By then, she was already the mother of one child, and soon to be pregnant with a second. She and Thomas Cohen, lead singer of the London band S.C.U.M., got married in 2012 in the same church where her parents wed.

It was also the place where her mother’s funeral had been held, and Peaches said Yates was never far from her thoughts.

“I feel her presence all the time,” she told Hello! magazine. “But especially today.”
