Welcome to Season Five of the The MJCast! In this special episode, Jamon Bull and guest co-host Damien Shields are excited to welcome to the show Bill Whitfield, Michael Jackson’s former bodyguard and co-author of the bestselling memoir, Remember the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson in His Final Days. As head of Jackson’s security during the last years of his life, Bill has incredible memories from this period of time which continues to fascinate fans around the world.
Bill shares his stories of working for the King of Pop, protecting him and his family in risky situations, Michael’s relationship with Sony, as well as watching him interact with his children. Bill saw the real Michael, and was there as Jackson was mentally attempting to recover from the ordeal that he and his family were put through during the false 2005 allegations and trial, and his insights around those difficult moments are invaluable during this particularly tumultuous time for the Michael Jackson fan community.
