About this product
- DescriptionWhen the world heard the news on 25 June 2009 that Michael Jackson had died, it was both a shocking end to a cruelly curtailed and extraordinary life, and a t-unexpected finale to a story that had been shot through with tragedy and darkness since its beginning. From his early success in the Jackson 5 as a young boy to becoming the self-styled 'King of Pop', Jackson lived his whole life in the limelight. Yet he once described himself as 'one of the loneliest people in the world' and his personal life was a constant source of controversy, culminating in his very public fall from grace with his trial for sexual abuse and astonishing debts of $300 million. Millions of fans were looking forward to the 50 planned comeback concerts which were to be the triumphant happy ending to his story, but he died just weeks before they were due to take place. In this fascinating and eye-opening biography, Chas Newkey-Burden separates the man from the myth, unflinchingly examining the more contentious areas of his life while also celebrating the undeniable achievements of this undisputed musical genius. Michael Jackson - Legend will hour the memory of a man who gave so much joy to so many millions around the world.
- Author BiographyChas Newkey-Burden is the author of a number of acclaimed biographies including, Amy Winehouse ('A brilliant read - four out of five', Reveal) and Paris Hilton ('Riveting Reading', The Sun).
