NEW BOOK: The Jacksons Legacy (to be published in October)

JACKSONS_3d_GREY.jpg?format=1000w

The Jacksons: Legacy is the first ever official book on the the Royal Family of Pop. This major volume reveals the untold, unseen and utterly unforgettable story behind the legend that is the Jacksons. Four specially commissioned chapters deftly weave together an unprecedented 12 days’ worth of exclusive interviews with the brothers, recounted in their own words, with contributions from key players throughout their careers. The compelling tale unfolds from their childhood days living at 2300 Jackson Street in Gary, Indiana, through the years signed to Motown as the Jackson 5, their radical move to Epic as The Jacksons, the blossoming of their solo careers, the dizzying successes of the Victory tour, and right up to the present day.

During unrivalled access to the family archives as well as the private collections of Jackie, Marlon and Tito Jackson, bespoke photography captures a multitude of never-before-seen images, rarities and personal possessions. The result is a mind-blowing collection of visual material: intensely personal family pictures; all-angle shots of the first guitars the boys ever held; top photographer Harrison Funk’s exclusive coverage of their professional lives; photos of Michael Jackson on tour with his brothers during the release of Off The Wall (1979) and the 1982 phenomenon that was Thriller – the best-selling album of all time; editions of teen and black culture magazines featuring the family; and official merchandise, right down to Jacksons-branded breakfast cereal boxes with giveaway 7” records attached.

Published to coincide with their 50th anniversary, The Jacksons: Legacy is the definitive behind-the-scenes chronicle of the Jacksons’ lives and careers, celebrating 50 years of one of the greatest acts of all time.

  • The Jacksons Legacy is out worldwide on 12th October 2017. AVAILABLE TO PRE-ORDER NOW FROM AMAZON:http://bit.ly/JACKSONS
