Reading Is Fundamental: A Preview of Frank Cascio’s “My Friend Michael”

The name Frank Cascio might not be immediately familiar to you unless you’re a Michael Jackson fan, but if you are, like me, a major KOP obsessive, then that name will immediately ring a bell. Cascio was MJ’s personal assistant and right hand man for well over a decade until his tragic 2009 death. Frank met Michael when he was barely out of diapers, and the two formed a lasting, close friendship that withstood all of the drama that entered […]

Moonlighting: Michaels on Michael (Popdose Podcast Extra)

Get four supreme music nerds to do a podcast, and how long do you think they’re gonna talk?

If your iPod only had room for 10 Michael […]

The Viewfinder: “Hollywood Tonight” by Michael Jackson

So, Michael, the first posthumous release of unreleased material by The King of Pop, hasn’t exactly lived up to expectations. While certified Platinum in the U.S. for shipments of in excess of a million copies, the reality is that it’s sold about half of that. It’s hard to breathe life into a project when the artist isn’t here to promote it, but bless their hearts, Michael’s record company and management are trying. “Hollywood Tonight” is the second video release from […]

Chamone!! New Michael Jackson Album Coming Out 12/14

Well, this is a nice little Christmas gift. Sony Music has announced that an album consisting of previously unreleased Michael Jackson material is coming out on December 14th, just in time for the festive holiday season. No word on the track listing yet, but the album, entitled “Michael”, will contain at least a few tracks recorded in 2007 in New Jersey. There’s already been a bit of a kerfuffle (I’ve always wanted to use that word) regarding whether the vocals […]
