Dick Zimmerman On Michael Jackson

Have ya ever wondered who was behind the photo-shoot of Michael's Thriller Album? How bout his famous Lisa Marie wedding shoot? Well, today's your lucky day!

 Dick Zimmerman was asked to do an interview highlighting his career with such novices as Tom Cruise, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Nicole Kidman, and the like. Including his spectacular accomplishments with Michael Jackson! Here is a snippet of the interview concerning The Gloved One...

Tell me about the day you photographed Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' cover.
 On the day of the shoot, he came alone. No entourage. We had two racks of wardrobe, handpicked by one of the best stylists in LA. Michael didn't really care for anything on it. He said, "I'd like to be wearing something like what you have on." I was wearing my white suit that day. I said, "Well, we're about the same height." So Michael is actually wearing my white suit on the cover.

What happened to the suit?
 I auctioned it off…

Michael-Diary of A Fan

June 25th, 2009 will forever be a cliche in the mind of every Michael Jackson fan across the face of this Earth. And for good reason too! The unthinkable had just occurred. Our idol had just passed away on account of patient malpractice(and addiction).

 In "Michael-Diary of A Fan", Franck takes us on a journey through his personal life after this most tragic event. Weather by paying his respects, popping more pills, or even traveling around the world in an attempt to run from himself, his spirit would always come back to haunt him. Weather he visited the basilicas of Moscow, the parading rhythm of Spain, or even the organized routs of Tokyo. He just could not escape deaths cold grip upon his soul. Not until he confronted the monsters in his closet could Frank hope to allow MJ to R.I.P.

 Although the book is littered with grammatical errors, I find his journey pretty intriguing. He even admits(to his credit) that some fans are just too fanatical(even to the point of making …

MJ All In Your Name

Recently, Berry Gibb(formally known as one of the Bee-Gees) released a snippet of him and Michael Jackson singing "All In Your Name"-an unreleased gem started around the mid 80's but picked up again around 2003. Right before he was falsely charged with you know what(had this not happened, the track would've made the incomplete album slated for 2004).

 Furthermore, he plans on leaking the full version real soon. Stay tuned for further updates! In the meantime watch for my post on Thursday as I have another book review!



*Update* In case your wondering what "All In Your Name" means. Well, according to Gibb it's all for the cause of the fans(at least indirectly). Berry has just released a brief snippet of behind-the-scenes studio footage(which is reportedly up to two hours long) of them rehearsing this work of art! Watch and listen below...

[[**Update** The single has now been released of it's entirety. More details can be found Here!]]
