Morning Music Notes – Michael Jackson Has a Brother Called Jackie Jackson
Michael Jackson’s family are planning to have a tribute concert for the deceased King of Pop (that’s Michael Jackson, by the way). NME reports that his mother Katherine plus his siblings Marlon, Tito, Jackie and LaToya are to attend a press conference on Monday, July 25 in Beverly Hills at 10am local time to reveal details of the show. Wait, Michael has a sibling named Jackie Jackson? The show is rumoured to focus on his 1982 smash hit ‘Thriller’ album, for which the video still gives me nightmares. I might also still wet my bed. That last sentence was related to Thriller, not any other problems that my body might have.
“Jackson’s brother Jermaine tried to organise a star studded concert for the late singer back in December 2009. It was set to be staged at Wembley Stadium last summer but fell through after the promoters World Awards Media went into liquidation.”
Tell Your Ears to Listen: Bush – The Sound of Winter

Radio station KROQ are streaming Bush’s first single on their website, so give The Sound of Winter a spin.

A video (which is not THE video) is down below, so you can listen to the track.
