Michael Jackson

At the Tokyo Music Festival in 1974, I was complaining to my new pals, The Jackson 5, that being a song plugger and running a professional department at a major publishing company had me in the office at 7 am and left me little time for me to out dancing at night.

A 12 year old Michael Jackson said in that high voice of his,”Artie…Why don’t you just build a dance floor in your office?” When I got back to Hollywood, Warner Brothers music built me a five foot circular dance floor out of plywood to keep me happy….but it wasn’t long before I left there to run Irving/ Almo Music, where a seven foot mahogany dance floor awaited me!

    Dear Artie,
    My band Vodka Collins was the opening act for the Jackson Five at the Imperial Theater in Tokyo, May 7, 1973. It was their first tour of Japan.
    Michael was a very shy young boy, but on stage he was a dynamo. The perfect professional entertainer.
    I’m glad I got to share a stage with Michael all those years ago. He was one of a kind. A force of nature as a performer.
    – RIP Michael Jackson –
