Joe Jackson Worn Jacket – COA Family Provenance LOAGo Back
Out of stock
Joe Jackson died at the age of 89 and if it had not been for him the world would have never experienced the magical pop music of the Jackson 5 and Michael Jackson, nor seen the talented success of La Toya Jackson and Janet Jackson. As the father of this amazing brood of talented children, Joe raised them and guided their careers with a strong focus. When Marlon and Michael were added, the group became the Jackson 5. They went on to win talent competitions in famous venues like the Regal theatre, Chicago, and the Apollo theatre, Harlem, New York. Then in March of 1969, they released a couple of singles on Steeltown Records before signing to Motown Records. Their first four singles for the label topped the Billboard Hot 100, and they scored seven top 10 singles in a two-year period.
In 1971 Michael launched his solo career, and the following year had his first chart-topping hit with Ben. In 1982 he released Thriller, which would become the biggest-selling album in pop history, and after the Jacksons’ Victory album and tour in 1984, announced he was leaving. 2300 Jackson Street (1989), released by the remaining quartet, was the end of the band, apart from a couple of reunion shows in 2001 and the shambolic Unity tour in 2012.
Michael Jackson was a one-of-a-kind entertainer, truly gifted and driven not just by the proverbial beat of his own drum but to a pop culture rhythm all to its own. Whatever that energy was it still moonwalks all over the place of today’s culture. The music business lost an iconic cornerstone when he died.
