Jackson 5

10 Ratings: 3.2
Quintet of brothers formed and managed by their father beginning in 1966 in Gary, Indiana. Consisted of "Jackie", "Tito", Jermaine, Marlon and lead singer Michael. Discovered by Diana Ross. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.

The Jackson 5 were one of the biggest phenomenons in pop music during the early '70s, and the last great group to come out of the Motown hitmaking machine before Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder shifted the label's focus to more individual visions. … see full wiki

A Quick Tip by MNeulander

  • Sep 1, 2010
Boy, do I remember watching the "Jackson Five" on TV growing up as a kid!!!  Michael was so talented, definitely carried the group!!!  Unfortunately, Michael's meteoric rise to stardom and his precipitous fall reminds me of the plot of a typical Greek tragedy.  It is such a shame that a talent of his caliber fell to such lows, and by his own actions. 

After seeing some of Michael's MTV videos, Gene Kelly remarked that Michael was the most talented dancer he ever saw!  It just adds more weight to the depth of the tragic fall.
