When you hear the name Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Jr., the first thing that comes to mind is basketball. Yes Johnson is a former point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers with five NBA championships, three MVP awards, and an Olympic gold medal. But the basketball hall of famer is also a philanthropist and savvy businessman.
Thanks to Inc. Magazine and the amazing power of Twitter, we were able to ask Magic a question. We found out that he is passionate about 'good music' and if he could, bass would be his instrument of choice. Here is our part of the interview:
@MusickEd asked from Twitter if you ever played an instrument or if you could play an instrument what would it be?
No, I haven't played an instrument. And I think it would be the bass because that's how you dance, to the bass. I'm the biggest music lover in the world. I mean I have seen everybody. I went on tour with Michael Jackson and the Jacksons four or five times. You name them, I've seen them and probably a hundred times too. So when you think about Magic Johnson and the thing that relaxes me or gets me going or gets me on that dance floor, it is just some good music. I still love to dance even though I can't do it as long as I used too. But that's one thing I'm really passionate about, good music.
Well Magic, today is your lucky day! Visit Discover, Learn, and Play and start learning - it's never too late! PS - We think you're OK even though we grew up as Celtic fans. All the best - MusickEd
