MUSIC MAJORS Promotions & Events

Bringing those behind the scenes to the front of stage

Promoters of UK talking tours relating to recording artists, recorded music, radio and events.

MICHAEL JACKSON

Hear some of the stories and learn a little more about the man and his recording career from some key figures working behind the scenes.

They could be:  Bernard Doherty then of Rogers & Cowan and Jonathan Morrish of CBS Records who managed his press and media in the UK or Larry Stessel who was Director of Marketing at Epic Records LA - instrumental in the sleeve design of his albums.  Michael nearly had Larry fired for airbrushing out facial hair on an album sleeve mock up and it took an appeasing call from Walter Yetnikoff, then President of CBS Worldwide to get Larry his job back.  And Dan Beck - Head of Promotions responsible for radio and TV on many of Michael's releases at Epic in NY.  A possible speaker could be Barry Clayman - responsible for all of Michael's tours in the UK although there would be so many questions for Barry he might need a show of his own!
