Michael Jackson Book CoverMichael Jackson (Book)
Released: 09-05-2019

The Rockyrama Classic collection expands with a new book by Nico Prat dedicated to Michael Jackson's career. The book will hit the shops in France on May 9 called simply 'Michael Jackson'.

The French book published by Ynnis Editions will concentrate on Michael Jackson’s career with the biggest names out there: from Spike Lee to Francis Ford Coppola, from Martin Scorsese to Steven Spielberg.

He was nothing less than the greatest pop star of all time. A total artist, mastering each note, each step, each appearance. There were hundreds of Michael Jackson, but only one of us interested here: the creator. This book only talks about Michael Jackson musician, dancer, artist. Michael Jackson is the director of Thriller, the best-selling album in history. He is the inventor of the clip as we know it today and has worked with the greats, from Spike Lee to Francis Ford Coppola, to Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg ... But Michael Jackson is also a career marked by genius collaborators (Quincy Jones, Rod Temperton, Berry Gordy ...), dance steps, pharaonic concerts ... This book traces the path of an early talent, become a global icon.

For the attention of our readers:

Despite the recent release of the documentary about Michael Jackson and the legitimate emotion caused by it, we decided to keep the release of our book in preparation for almost a year. A decision motivated by our esteem for the work of the author, Nico Prat, who had made the choice, throughout these pages, to dissociate the man and his career. If we, like everyone else, are aware of the repeated accusations over the years and in no way denigrate the words of the alleged victims, we do not feel that they are sufficiently legitimate to address them in these pages. We hope that this decision will not come up against any sensitivity.
