Michael Jackson – What It Was

Background and Treatment of the MJ story by Gary Revel

I began putting together The True Story of Michael Jackson sometime in 1994, probably in August or September. I had requests from Ben Brown, Gordon Keith (AKA William Adams) and others to help them write or get the true story of Michael Jackson written and published via book, documentary, movie or television broadcast.



The true story of the King of Pop includes the deception he was bundled into as a mere child and forced to accept as the true story of his life. This part is not well known and it will be realized in a feature length movie.

Michael's true story begins in Gary, Indiana and after being discovered by Ben Brown and Gordon Keith he sings lead on a music recording produced by Keith and Ben for their Steeltown Records label the song, is Big Boy or I'm A Big Boy Now. The recording is mixed, mastered and released as a single record on Steeltown Records and is played on the radio in Chicago, Illinois and Gary, Indiana and the surrounding areas.

A total of 13 recordings would be made by Steeltown of Michael, lead singer for the Jackson 5.

They are:

1. Monologue

2. We Don't Have To Be Over 21

3. You've Changed In So Many Ways

(the same as the 'You've Changed' on Motown's first Jackson 5 album for which Gordon Keith and Ben Brown have both told me was more or less stolen from them by Berry Gordy)

4, Big Boy

5. Michael The Lover

6. Jam Session

7. My Girl

8. Soul Jerk

9. Under The Boardwalk

10. Saturday Night At The Movies

11. Tracks Of My Tears

12. Lonely Hearts

13. Stormy Monday

Joe Jackson was taking his boys to beer joints and other clubs to play music for adult audiences during this time and my sources have told me that during some of the nights when the boys stayed in motels and 'friends' homes to make the show dates more timely Michael would be a victim of sexual abuse by grown men. I have been offered audio tapes of some of these men telling stories of how Joe allowed and encouraged this. One particular tape is supposed to be of a Medical Doctor confessing his sordid deeds.

The music biz is a sleazy biz at best...the fact that the music soars over it --is above it all--is sort of an irony...and Mikey lived this irony...he was like an angel that fluttered over a sordid world...

In my movie, Michael has to find a glint of happiness somewhere...where is it his playthings? Is it the accolades? Does he have a favorite Blanket he keeps with him into adulthood, was it replaced by his son, Blanket...
(finally he gives it up?)
WAS HE HOLDING IT OR WRAPPED IN IT WHEN HE DIED??? is it in the casket...????

What is this Blanket thing.. did it protect him, was it the envelope he was sent along in to limit the harshness that was his in putting up with the biz...the real world as he knew it...

.Was it one of his psychological props, the little things that identify his "longings" through his belongings as he had many belongings...and many things that in the end meant so little. His relationship with children, though bizarre to most, was normal to him. He had himself experienced pleasant experiences with strange men as a child. In the motels and bars he had started his career as a singer in.

When he traipses around the house, he may wear an old but comforting robe? A princely gown? underwear? He danced with himself, kids, friends anyone who'd stop and take the time...He'd dance by himself like the famous Tom Cruise danced when his parents were out of town in Risky Business... The nights in that huge mansion had to be as gleeful as they sometimes were lonely for him... That huge room where he'd sometimes watch TV???? Some had seen him turn lights against a wall and do a shadow dance when he was alone? We think he saw that in a movie once.

I saw him do the moon dance for the first time at the Apollo in LA.. It blew everyone away...the crowd went wild...they naturally loved him...on stage, he was one wih the Universe...

He often spoke in that soft low voice. It became his natural voice in most times but not always. He had his stage persona also and could speak firmly then like an arrow to the heart when needed.

If he accepted you as a friend and felt comfortable being only heard the soft voice. Who was the real Michael Jackson?

He was a singer, a man and a fascinating character...

His voice was a higher ranged baritone that would easily become pure falsetto...he usually spoke in a California accent...he had a spry step...when he came up to you, he sort of went up on the balls of his feet then back down...he "wore his hands" on his hips,...

He went through a smoking period once, but gave it up....

He studied music on his own. He had an extensive music library.

Kathryn would say things like-- "Music...there's always music with that boy...he can never get enough of it! Most people like it quiet every now and then, but not Michael, no, he just can't get enough!

His Daddy, Joe Jackson, once spanked him so hard in a Green Room before he went on stage that he couldn't perform...the brothers had to do two or three tunes until Mikey stopped crying long enough to get on stage and sing...crying through his tears, but holding them back in the spotlight, was a nightmare that didn't just go away...

He recorded for Steeltown when he was 5 and 6.

It was all work, work, work for Michael

During his younger years he'd sometimes eat the whole bowl of fruit in the Green Room and several sandwiches...he'd sneakily take stuff with him as he headed back to the motel....he said he didn't like the room service his Daddy ordered, he only liked it when he could order! He'd often order more than one desert.

He had nightmares as a child and they got worse as he got older...he just couldn't sleep...maybe a form of dementia was setting in from years of abuse and drugs...the body, the mind, can only take so much deceptions - lies – fantasy. We ask where does the nightmare end and reality begin.

Finally enormous success with Thriller.

Legal problems - Children

May 26, 1994, Twenty days after her divorce from Keough, Presley married singer Michael Jackson.

There were times he would not eat solid food at all...only intravenous stuff...maybe he should have been eating steak and potatoes! Someone should have seen to this...did Dr. Murray ever mention sustenance? Michael had times that he was suicidal...clearly....

Did anyone ever think that the reason he couldn't sleep and needed Propofal was that his psyche was afraid to go to sleep because of all those nightmares born in the past that just kept coming back?

Why couldn't Michael sleep? Could it be a Monster Talent will always end up with Monster Nightmares?

No matter Dr. Murray? Michael was not long for this world anyway doing those kinds of was a form of suicide in the face of achieving the biggest burst of stardom ever...the new tour....He was destined to go out in a flame of glory like James Dean and Marilyn...

Everything was more compelling, harder, bigger, brighter, darker than was die or explode into the Neverland Inferno blasting into dust...the perfect metaphor for the life of Michael Jackson...

Juxtaposed that with the life of never escaping childhood, even as a Man...the irony of which is he said he never had a childhood..the truth is he never left one.....his last words???

"I never had a childhood...there is no hope."

"There is no hope"

He never had a childhood, it is he created one in his mind and physically crept into everlasting youthful fantasy and just stayed there...

I think MJ was loved, but his Dad's behavior made him feel unloved...neglected...he is the classic product of child abuse and neglect, he just had "the look" of plenty...I think his brothers loved him but the love ended more for the money he provided than his friendship and concern for his best interests-his health...everybody was so busy. Some of his family really loved him but the love got lost in the business.

He had been taught to be a well mannered child...polite for a little kid...usually surrounded by adults...his dad, older brothers, businessmen in suits... He got his doctor to more or less live with him... Maybe that was his biggest mistake.

Eventually he would hold one of his own little children over the edge of a balcony. A dangerous and provocative thing to do with news reporters watching. Even if he was sure he would not drop his child.

He flamed out like a Roman Candle...trying to take on a worldwide tour at the age of 50....he needed the money....he needed the juice....

His relationship with women has also been a mystery... He may have been dynamite in the sack on those occasions when he could let go of everything else and just enjoy a woman... Women and girls were attracted to him, he was a tall guy, a big guy, a beautful man; expressive hands that mesmerized when covered with white gloves.

Lisa Marie was/is a rare beauty and theirs was a storybook romance as far as we know...I mean he went out to woo her and bring her home--and he did! Swept her off her feet....what was it like...only she knows..but we can easily imagine...they both were very shy in real life....had a lot in common...

He must have found some happiness as a grownup, good looking guy that he was (before the clown face).

The parties he threw at Neverland back in the day could be fun...all those animals, you know there were some wild and crazy moments.

He was naturally the life of the party and a fun guy...his best years were the Thriller years, when he had short hair, wore no make-up and had his monkey... a good monkey scene never hurt a movie.

No doubt Michael eventually becomes very rich and very famous and stands by the created story of Motown and Diana Ross being the discoverer of MJ and The Jackson Five and to this day I have never heard any public statement or acknowledgement of the Pre-Motown music recordings. When you realize that it certainly was the single record, 'Big Boy' on the Steeltown label, that introduced the mega-selling King of Pop to the world and that fact has been overlooked all these years then you go on to learn other hidden secrets immersing the entire Jackson empire you realize that the someone needs to set the record straight and tell the true story of Michael Jackson.

The story must begin where it begins and that is with the recording of the Gary, Indiana music recordings, some of which were released by Steeltown Records and especially the Steeltown single record, 'Big Boy'. I called Current Affair and other media and news organizations offering Ben or Keith as subjects for interviews, etc.

One day I was in my office when the phone rang.

You tell Ben Brown to keep his mouth shut. Michael doesn’t want him talking to the press or anybody.”

This is what I heard over the phone from a man who had identified himself as Bill Bray Director of Security for Michael Jackson.

I replied, “Sorry, but I can’t do that. He has a right to tell his story and that story includes his part in the success of Michael’s music career.”

Some months before Ben had called me and asked for a meeting related to the music business of Michael Jackson. I had agreed and at that meeting with Ben and his wife, Joann, I got a 2 hour seminar on how Michael Jackson had really got his start and achieved success in the music business. To my surprise it wasn’t as I had thought I knew. Michael had not been discovered by Diana Ross and Motown Records had not been the first record company to produce, and release Michael Jackson records. A small Gary, Indiana based record company, Steeltown Records, was the first record company releasing Michael Jackson and Jackson 5 records. Ben and Joann asked me for help in getting the true story to the public. Part of the deal we made included developing a record release of the early Pre-Motown Michael Jackson music.

I worked with Ben and then later Gordon Keith, who was also one of the early partners of Steeltown, to slowly correct the great misunderstanding the public had been brainwashed with.

On the morning of June 25, 2009 I was watching news on TV and heard a report that Michael had been rushed to the hospital due to a cardiac arrest. Shortly the report changed to the simple statement that Michael Jackson was dead.

Now, new calls for me to investigate the death of Michael were coming in. Still the cry for the true life story begs to be achieved and now along with that is the cry for the true story of his possible murder. Now Dr. Murray Conrad is being tried for Negligent Homicide because of Michael's death.

I expect to finally bring both together in a movie that will bring the candid facts via an explosive and riveting motion picture about the life and death of Michael Jackson. No corner of deceit or criminal involvement of the real life characters will be left uncovered in this story of Michael’s life that millions are anxiously awaiting to see.

With French Screenwriter-Jordan Tate as my co-writer I have finished the screenplay, Don't Stop Dancing, which will bring the true life story of Michael Jackson to his millions of fans all around the world.

The last scene of the movie will be in the graveyard, go to black, ".MJ--(dates of life and death)--REST IN PEACE"
