Michael Jackson

Ten years on from the death of the King Of Pop, Michael Jackson is still revered by many as a true iconic legend, a man that shaped modern pop music, a man that changed the world and brought joy and happiness into the lives of millions of people globally.

Over 1.6 million fans tried to attend his memorial service and 8,750 recipients were picked at random and received an invitation. Recently, a dark shadow has once again been cast over Michael Jackson, a shadow that questions his very nature. During his career, Jackson underwent several investigations regarding child abuse. Although he was never officially convicted of any of the charges brought against him, many claim the allegations to be true.

In a recent interview with Kerrang!, Slash spoke about his involvement with Michael Jackson back in the 90s when he famously appeared with Jackson on stage at the MTV music awards. Slash also worked on Michael Jackson 1991 record ‘Dangerous’.

Slash recalls how he came to work with Michael Jackson:

“Initially, it was a phone call from my manager where he said, ‘Michael is trying to get in touch with you,’ and I was like, ‘Wow.’ So I called him back and he wanted me to play on Dangerous”
Slash also states that Michael Jackson was surrounded by people that were full of sh*t and Michael Jackson knew it.

All the people he had around him, the tugging, and the yes people, you could tell that he knew 90 percent of them were full of shit. The only time I really felt like he was in any kind of comfort zone was when he was actually onstage. I felt sorry for him.

Whilst there is no physical evidence that can categorically prove Michael Jackson’s innocence or guilt, you do have to question who is telling the truth, and who is out for their own personal gain. For the record, we are neither defending Michael Jackson nor are we accusing him. His alleged victims would have gone through a truly horrific ordeal if the events did indeed take place.
