When you meet real talent, it’s overwhelming.
"The night Michael Jackson came to see me backstage was, in contrast, simply surreal. When word got round that he was coming backstage after a performance, all the kids in the chorus wanted to say hello, but Suzanne [PA] vetoed it. No wonder she wasn’t everyone’s Little Miss Favorite. Michael was in my dressing room having tea with me for 40 minutes. He was with Quincy Jones, they had been to see the show together.
Michael was fascinated by the show and it’s old fashioned innocence. He took great interest in my appearance, the white face and charcoal lined eyes, the above ankle length trousers, white socks and patent leather shoes. He was particularly intrigued that I had studied at RADA. I told him that I have been very influenced by Keaton and Chaplin, Jacques Tati, Marcel Marceau and Gene Kelly. He became very animated at the mention of such names and I realized that he was a lot more than just a pop star, he was a very serious performer indeed.
At one point Michael asked me if he could use the phone ‘Yeah sure’ I said. Just dial 9 for an outside line “ Michael was saying into the phone “Yeah, OK can I just say goodnight. Yeah. Goodnight baby. Robert, do you want to say goodnight to Bubbles?” I whispered to Quincy “Who’s Bubbles “ and Quincy said “Its Michael chimpanzee. Just say goodnight. It won’t hurt. Its OK “So I went over, took the phone and said “Hi, its Robert here” And I could hear these noises at the other end coming from the chimp! Michael Jackson has asked me to say goodnight to a chimpanzee and there I was doing exactly as he requested” Robert Lindsay, excerpt from his book, ‘Letting Go.’
“I try to be loving, and I try to find love and see love in all things. I love nature, I love the forest. I love the grace, the gentleness, the easiness of how gentle nature is. It is just giving. I love that.” Michael Jackson
In celebration of getting my 200th follower today I decided to make a follow forever.
I haven’t been on Tumblr (as an MJ blog) for long and so far it’s been such a laugh and so much fun to interact with the awesome mjfam everyday.
