Did Michael Jackson Let His Fans Down?

Recently, it has come to my knowledge that a few that would open up a long string of concerts dubbed This Is It! have been reassigned new dates. Some not so bad(from July 8th to July 13th). While others won't get a chance to see their idol until early March(the 10th, 12th, and 14th have been driven back to March 1st, 3ed, and 6th. The reasons given are purely technical as opposed to health concerns.

Stage personnel just simply don't have enough time to prepare for what will become the most spectacular show ever witnessed! In order to make sure all 50 gigs get their monies worth, it was necessary to make these changes. Yet according to Phillips "no other dates will be affected by this drastic measure".

Kenny Ortega and Randy Phillips explain in a more down to Earth fashion over at Michael Jackson Live.

Fan Reactions On Rebookings

Many fans have spoken outrage at the sudden change of events. Feared rebooking fees for both travel and accommodations has left quite a few labeling AEG incompetent...

And I wouldn't blame them. They have every right to get angry. Not so much with AEG but more with the greed among the hotel and airline industries. I mean, how dare you charge a rebooking fee and tell me I need insurgence just to change my reservations! "Let's take em for every cent they got hiccup."

What gets me even more is how people just accept it as how it is. There's even been a case in Memphis where she has to pay for both a flight that's not gonna happen on top of another rescheduled booking. Obviously, that right there is thievery! If I were her, I would go to the BBB or better yet post it on Youtube and let there be a viral effect which'll get em where it hurts the most. That way they'll be forced to stop these ridiculous policies that only benefit their end-line.:)

In the meantime, I have some great news! The folks over at MJJC are will to help out in any way they can(by negotiating with flight and accomodations(for those who've previously made arrangements to not have to pay another cent). Just give them your...

Little Susie

Some believe this to be based on a true story. However, it's been more or less confirmed as a fictional tale. Partly Inspired by Gottfried Helnwein's artwork. Who is famous for his emotional imagery-Especially of children(in fact, Michael used his Lichtkind(Child of Light) painting to depict this song on The History Vol. 1 Booklet).

 In this tragic tale, Little Susie took her own life because of gross indifference to her well-being. One by one, her folks passed away. Father abandoned them, leaving mother and gram-father to wither in the grave.

 Years later, she was grafted into an unloving family. Though she was adopted, they did not take her in. Loneliness seeped it's cold dead fingers upon her tender heart. Until she couldn't bear it much longer. Although it was technically an accident. She subconsciously threw herself down the stairs to escape the pain.

 Although the story is clearly fictitious, Michael was proving a point. "Neglect can kill. Like a knife …

Invincible Session Outtakes

Here is an exhaustive list of all Invincible tracks that Either was sent to production hell or never quite made the list. According to Rodney Jerkins, there are a heck of a lot of finished outtakes from this session. Enough to fill multiple albums! So I lied. This is by no means an exhaustive list.:)

Fall Again Demo-I knew something spectacular was missing from his latest album! I Just couldn't quite lay my finger on it. I'm glad Michael took time away to be with his sick son. But this track fits in this session like a jigsaw piece. This beautiful Romantic Ballad was co-produced by Walter Afanasieff and Michael Jackson.

Beautiful Girl Demo-I can just see this on a soundtrack for a Romantic movie. Claiming top chart positions worldwide. But for unknown reasons, it was cut at the last moment.

 Michael Jackson and Tito both collaborated on an instrumental take which was also shelved.

The Way You Love Me-Sounds very much like something McCartney would do. With the elegant piano a…
