Finally for all those who own the double album Live At The Forum, the magazine had at the time made an account of the two concerts and we talked about all this in 2010.

Almost ten years on from Jackson's untimely death, here is Margo Jefferson's definitive and dazzling dissection of the King of Pop: a man admired for his music, his flair, his performances; and censured for his skin, his erratic behaviour, and, in his final years, for his relationships with children.

Last year, we told you about a e-book titled ‘Behind The Gates Of Neverland’ written by Lori Armstrong & Ray Robledo which you could order on Amazon. The book is now available to order.

Ray Robledo was Michael Jackson’s friend and was also Michael’s Neverland Valley Amusement Park Manager from 1988 to 1996. They shared a deep, true bond and had a mutual respect for each another.

Ray grew tired of the false accusations surrounding his friend and therefore teamed up with author Lori Armstrong to publish the truth as he had witnessed it.

This book is written with “…kind eyes, open ears and hand-written notes of Ray.” It includes the humorous side of Michael, Elizabeth Taylor’s wedding at Neverland, the ghostly spirit of “George” who roamed Neverland, the actual arrest of the REAL Billie Jean at the ranch, (she was apprehended by Ray), and so much more. It also includes all of Michael’s humanitarian work with never-before-seen-pictures.

‘Behind the Gates of Neverland – Conversations with Michael Jackson’ is now available on Amazon with three options: e-book, full-colour coffee table book and black/white coffee table book.
