Young people need to understand two things. 1) Michael Jackson has his own Facebook page, so if they want to moan & cry about how much they “miss” him they need to do it over there. 2) Those of us OLDER Jackson 5 fans were MJ fans FROM THE GET-GO. THE BEGINNING. WE are the ones who BOUGHT those records with hard-to-come-by allowance money so that they could HAVE those first 4 number one hits out of the box. We memorized Michael-Marlon-Jermaine-Tito-Jackie to where we knew them better than our own relatives’ names. The Jackson 5 had fans, the Jacksons had fans and they continue to have fans, and not just because of our beloved Michael.
If you grew up in that time, and bought the teen magazines, and bought the 45 records and the 33 LPs and the 8 tracks, then you sorely miss that music and I for one am ecstatic they have decided to come back.
Would the show be awesome with Michael? Of course! It was exciting to see MJ with his five brothers for his 30th anniversary show at MSG. We ALL wish he were here with us, or vice versa. But don’t come on The Jacksons’ Facebook and be mad - or surprised - because the brothers have an audience for their music even without MJ because they had one IN THE FIRST PLACE.
If you will never understand that, well, that’s YOUR problem. In the meantime, NOBODY who actually went to the shows from Detroit, Apollo, AC and Englewood have had ANYTHING bad to say about the show that I can find, and I’ve been looking.
As for me, I’m scrambling to figure out which show in the Unity Tour I can afford to go see, since I haven’t had income for a while, and what I can do without to go see it, because the next time around there maybe even FEWER of them and I want to give them their thousand roses and thank them while they are still ALIVE.
Check out my EP #mylifewithoutyou Available now on iTunes, Amazon and other digital music stores.
Taryll Jackson is the middle son of the Jackson 5’s guitarist Tito Jackson and Delores “Dee Dee” Martez-Jackson, and he’s a European singing star in his own right as a member of the group 3T. Can’t believe he’s in his 30’s now. This is his first solo album. He produced it and plays all the instruments, kind of like Stevie Wonder used to do on his albums back in the day! Music is certainly in this guy’s soul! Taryll’s got a lot to say in not too many songs, it’s clean music, so please give it a listen. Thanks!
I wanted to announce that I will be releasing my debut solo EP titled “My Life Without You” in April. Keep an eye out for it on iTunes, Amazon and other music digital distribution services. I also posted a new song that I hope you will enjoy. It’s called “4ever” and you can hear it now at tarylljackson.com. Please retweet, reblog, and help spread the word. Thanks for all for your love, strength and support. It is much needed and greatly appreciated.
This is Tito Jackson’s middle son, Taryll! Looks just like his mama. Probably no big secret what his 1st single will be speaking of. Michael Jackson continues to guide all these kids from another world.
