Episodio 022 – Mesa Redonda Bad 30

El 31 de Agosto de 1987, Michael Jackson publica el álbum “Bad”, la respuesta al monstruosamente exitoso “Thriller” y su última colaboración bajo la batuta de Quincy Jones. La prensa y el público en general tenían ahora una imagen muy diferente del chico que unos años antes los había cautivado con el Moonwalk y que los había hecho alucinar con Thriller. Bad fue la contestataria forma en la que Jackson se defendió de aquellos que le tacharon de no ser suficientemente negro o que no le perdonaron ser exageradamente talentoso. A pesar de las duras críticas, más centradas en su persona que en la música, Bad logró un record de 5 sencillos números 1 en Billboard: I Just Can´t Stop Loving You, Bad, The Way You Make Me Feel, Man In The Mirror y Dirty Diana. Pero más importante aún que las listas, Michael demostró sus dotes como compositor y creativo cada vez más dueño de su obra.

Nadie se imaginaba que Michael Jackson podría sobrevivir al éxito de Thriller, y mucho menos se imaginaban que se podían alcanzar tales alturas de megaestrellato y capacidad artística. Bad es un disco tan bueno, que es realmente muy, muy malo. Acompáñanos junto con nuestros invitados Marisa Ramírez y Uriel MartiVilla en nuestra primer mesa redonda para celebrar el 30 aniversario de Bad, y respondamos ahora mismo ¿quién es malo?

Episode 064 – Vincent Paterson Special

Choreographer Vincent Patterson was at Michael Jackson’s side for many of the key moments which helped cement his status as an entertainment legend, first working with Michael as an assistant choreographer and lead dancer on the pioneering Beat It and Thriller music video shoots. When it came time to devise the videos for Michael’s next album, Bad, Vincent was brought back into the fold, working on the short films for The Way You Make Me Feel, Speed Demon, Dirty Diana and Smooth Criminal.

But it wasn’t just short films he collaborated on with Michael. He also helped shape some of the most historic live performances of Michael’s career, from directing the Bad World Tour to helping to choreograph Michael’s 1988 Grammy Awards performance.

Vincent’s association with Michael continued throughout the 1990s. He choreographed for the Black or White music video and Michael’s MTV 10th anniversary performance, helped devise Michael’s groundbreaking Superbowl half-time show and directed the Blood on the Dance Floor music video.

Today he joins Jamon and Q to discuss Michael Jackson as both an artist and a man, explaining their collaborative working process and telling the stories behind some of pop culture’s most historic moments. He also discusses his involvement in the documentary, The Man Behind the Throne, which is the focus of his work with Michael Jackson, Madonna and other celebrities.

Episode 063 – Q Q&A

Just when you thought things were getting back to normal, Jamon has deserted ship again, leaving Q to man the deck single-handed. Luckily, Q is more than capable of entertaining himself while Jamon isn’t looking.

In this solo episode, Q answers questions submitted by you, our loyal listeners. Episode 062 was the fastest-downloaded regular news episode in the show’s history, so Q felt Episode 063 would be the perfect opportunity to engage in a little back and forth with our ever-growing audience.

Topics ranged from MJ in the movies to what Q would do if if was manning the fort over at the MJ Estate, instead of here at The MJCast.

From Lina Yakoub:

  • Who are three actors you think would be able to channel Michael the best in a movie (could be singers as well)?
  • What already existing movie roles do you think Michael possibly could have played?
  • Do you have any exciting guests on upcoming episodes and, if so, could you give us a few hints on who they may be?

From live-tweeting queen Carley (@MJIsMyGoldenBoy):

  • Which MJ songs have you not listened to ever since MJ’s passing?
  • What were the highlights of seeing MJOne?

From Lyne Tyler (@FmrMTLr):

  • A common complaint with fellow fans is the lack of available materials from the Jacksons’ touring years. As we gripe about not having the Destiny, Triumph or Victory tours on any media, we never ask who owns the rights to those tours. Is it the band (ie. The Jacksons) or another entity? The MJ Estate may not have full ownership and may therefore not be to blame for not releasing them. I personally have no clue and thought you may have insight.
  • My second question relates to your outstanding work in putting this podcast together. Without revealing your secret sauce, as you all seem to make it so easy, how do you manage to produce such a high quality show with consistent topics and without speaking over each other? How much prep time is involved and how do your respective significant others feel about the time we steal away from them? I love them all for sharing you with us so generously.
  • One last question. Can we get Mr Thomson to live tweet more? He is priceless.

From Kory Wise:

  • If you could go back to witness one moment from Michael’s life or career, what would it be and why?

From Reny SanLuis:

  • If you could own any piece of MJ memorabilia, what would it be and why?
  • If you were in charge of the MJ Estate, what would be the first MJ item/thing that you would put out or do for the public?
  • If you could go back in time and watch Michael create a signature moment during his stellar career, what would it be and why?
  • The famous Oprah Winfrey question: What do you know for sure?

From Ashley White (@1958TO4EVER):

  • Do you know what happened to the tsunami relief song Michael was working on around 2005, that he was shown working on in the Geraldo Riviera interview?
  • Do you think we will get a remastered Thriller on Blu-Ray as a result of Thriller 3D coming to cinemas?

Episode 062 – They Didn’t Need an Expert to Say That

Jamon is back from his paternity leave, rejoining Q to co-host Episode 062 after a few months off. They are joined by recurring guest host and legal correspondent Charles Thomson, plus lifelong MJ fan Angela Kande. Charles and Angela discuss their recent visits to Santa Maria, Forest Lawn and the Jacksons’ 50th Anniversary Tour, before helping Jamon and Q dissect all of the latest MJ and Jackson family news.

After the news, Jamon and Q first delve into Angela’s fan story, where she shares some of her most vivid memories from the ‘frontline’ of MJ fandom in the 1990s and 2000s. In addition to attending the HIStory Tour in 1997 and the World Music Awards in 2006, Angela spent time at Michael’s hotels and other places he visited during his trips to the UK. She recalls the lows (like witnessing a photographer assault Michael outside a recording studio) and the highs (like bagging a seat right behind Michael at a London theatre) of her time spent in Michael’s orbit. She also discusses the origins of her spoken word poem ‘Legacy’, about the impact of Michael’s death on his fan community.

The hosts then turn their attention to Charles. Despite first appearing on the MJCast in Episode 002 and having been a frequent contributor ever since, Jamon and Q recently realised they had never asked Charles some of the key questions they usually ask guests during their first appearances on the show. What begins as a simple interview about Charles’ favourite songs, albums, videos and concerts turns into an emotional discussion about what Michael means to his fans – and the wider world – and how the fan community must fight for his legacy as his Estate allows it to crumble.

This episode marks Angela’s first ‘live’ appearance on the MJCast, although she did appear as one of Charles’ interviewees in his World Music Awards 10th Anniversary Special last year.

Episode 061 – Jonathan ‘Sugarfoot’ Moffett Special

Drummer Jonathan ‘Sugarfoot’ Moffett first worked with Michael Jackson when he joined the Jacksons on their Destiny Tour in 1979. He remained with the brothers for the Triumph Tour – where his work was immortalised on the Jacksons’ only live album – and then joined them on their legendary Victory Tour. He later played on the Jacksons’ album 2300 Jackson Street and on Michael’s 1988 Grammy Awards performance.

Throughout the 1980s and 1990s he worked with other music legends including Madonna, Elton John and George Michael. In 1996 he re-teamed with Michael Jackson for the HIStory World Tour, which lasted into 1997, and then joined him again in 2001 for his two 30th Anniversary Celebration concerts at Madison Square Gardens in New York.

In 2009 he was selected for the This Is It band and worked with Michael in his final weeks, days and hours of rehearsals. He performed at Michael’s Staples Centre memorial and has since worked for his Estate on its Cirque Du Soleil Immortal World Tour.

In this special episode, Jonathan joins Jamon and Q to discuss his long career and relationship with Michael Jackson.
