The fall from grace, constant allegations and sharp artistic decline that affected Michael Jackson's last two decades until his death in 2009 often overshadow how talented and groundbreaking he was before the self-aggrandising and his ascent to the throne of The King Of Pop. On Off the Wall, Thriller and Bad, the three multimillion-selling albums that defined him as a solo artist, he was superbly seconded by Quincy Jones, the producer extraordinaire. The other person who helped turn Jackson into a superstar was Frank DiLeo, his manager during five glory years between 1984 and 1989, and the closest the singer came to a father figure to banish the memory of his real-life father, Joe Jackson.
It's not easy to write comedy, but if you want a really good laugh, have a quick read of the plot synopsis of the West End smash We Will Rock You on Wikipedia. Here's a snippet to get you in the mood: "Galileo insists that he only hears those words in his head. Brit tests Galileo, singing the first few lines of 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.

Carl Gardner was the last surviving member of the hit-making line-up of the Coasters which had success with "Searchin'", "Yakety Yak", "Poison Ivy" and many other titles in the late 1950s.

Their records have not dated as no one made records like theirs either before or since. The Coasters made great records, and gave you a laugh as well.
The last time Brian Wilson threw a punch, he tells GQ.com, was in 1976. "At Elvis! He knew karate, right, so as soon as I raised my hand he [chopped] it out of my way. It was in a recording studio in Los Angeles," explains the former Beach Boy, in London this week to appear on Later With Jools Holland. "He had a really long burgundy cape on and kept calling everyone 'Duke'." The memory is sweeter for the knowledge that both men were in questionable shape in 1976, thanks to hamburgers and a combined drug intake to rival any East European weightlifting team.
