The Jacksons Making A Comeback?

By DMS

Michael Jacksons 5

1, 2, 3, 4, 5…that’s how many Jacksons there were performing back in the 1970s with “I Want You Back” and “Never Can Say Goodbye”. And now brother Jermaine says they’re well on their way to a reunion tour, set to begin sometime in 2008. It is planned to be an all out reunion, including brother Michael who left the group in 1985 to pursue his solo career.

Jermaine was the lead singer before Michael took over and has been instrumental in planning the reunion. He says Michael has been at the meetings and will definately be involved. “He has to be. He is a Jackson.”

According to Jermaine, this isn’t the first time the Jackson 5 have tried to come back together. Plans for an earlier regroup were set aside in 2005 due to Michael’s child abuse case.

Jermaine is hopeful that this tour will bring them closer together and closer to a new album. He says the band is currently in the studio working on a new project.

Personal opinion here - look at Michael as a musician and not as a person when you’re considering their reunion. Taking no sides here, but whether you believe in his guilt or innocence regarding events in his life, you can’t deny that he’s had some amazing musical accomplishments. Give him, and the other 4 Jacksons, some kudos for having the cajones to get back out there!
