I can't wait to introduce the world to "My Friend Michael"
LIFELONG FRIEND OF MICHAEL JACKSON, FRANK CASCIO,
TO PUBLISH “MY FRIEND MICHAEL” WITH WILLIAM MORROW

Most Candid, Detailed Portrait of Pop Icon to Include
Many Never-Before-Seen Photos

New York, NY (January 25, 2011) – William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins Publisher today announced an agreement to publish the memoir MY FRIEND MICHAEL: Growing Up with the King of Pop by producer and lifelong Jackson friend, Frank Cascio.

The memoir, scheduled for Fall 2011, will chronicle Cascio’s relationship with Michael Jackson over 25 years and reveal the inside, behind-the-scenes story of the Michael that Cascio knew as the performer’s friend and closest confidante, offering the most candid, moving, and detailed portrait of the pop icon. The book will also include photos never before seen by the public.

Cascio intends to dedicate a portion of his proceeds from the book to charities benefiting children around the world. He plans to start with an organization that has been building housing, schools and orphanages in Haiti since the devastating earthquake that left many children without families. Details of his plans will be announced in the coming months.

Acquiring editor Matt Harper says “For more than 25 years, Frank was fortunate enough to be one of the few people that Michael Jackson chose to have around him. In that time he witnessed many of the singer’s most private and public moments firsthand, and with this book, Frank will share a side of Michael that only a handful of people have seen--a side that will set the record straight and change how people think about this often misunderstood icon.”

In MY FRIEND MICHAEL, Cascio tells the full story of his life with Michael, offering an uplifting and definitive account of the superstar’s life from someone who lived it alongside him during the most controversial times of Michael’s life. What emerges is an emotional new side of the “King of Pop,”––a human one that was at times unremarkably average but also terribly scarred by his life in the spotlight both on and off the stage. Packed with never-before-seen photos, amazingly insightful revelations, personal anecdotes, and private moments that are essential for every Michael Jackson fan, this book is a treasury of Michael Jackson lore, one that both celebrates his life and presents him as the special person that he really was.

World Rights to the book were acquired by William Morrow Senior Editor, Matt Harper from Matthew Guma of the Guma Agency.

I honestly believe that Frank has Michael's go-ahead with this book, especially since some of the proceeds are going to childrens charities.  The Cascios have been so loyal to Michael for years and years and I think that if Michael were in fact dead, this book would not be written because Frank would still feel that loyalty, probably even more so.  I am wondering if the book is due in the fall, if it will come before or after the BAM...

I'll be honest,I don't know how I feel about this yet.
I think throwing the charity donation idea/wish/plan in with it is to minimise the backlash he is going to get from Michael's fans about ANOTHER 'friend' writing about him,giving away private moments,making money off of him.

Yes,Michael would agree to giving proceeds to charity,of course but does Frank really need to use private memories,'memoirs' and never before seen pictures of him,attach Michael's name to it to do that?What's wrong with a private personal donation to the Haiti fund?

Unless Michael has given permission for him to write this book,which I really can't see him doing since he likes his privacy when he can get it,I don't see how it is any different to KF chatting shit on twitter or any other book written about him by an 'insider' 'friend' whatever.
I hope he has,and the book is justified and the donation to the charity is partly Michael's wish with Frank's.We shall see what happens between now and Fall....

I definitely see your point too Sinderella.  I just have this feeling that this book has Michael's blessing and that maybe it was written from Michael's point of view, like he's explaining why he's done certain things, his beliefs, what's important to him, etc.  I think I see it this way because I believe Michael is alive and the Cascios know this, for a fact.  If they kept their friendship with Michael a secret for over 20 years, I think they can keep the secret that he's still alive.  When I saw that family on Oprah, I didn't for a second feel that they had lost a very dear friend.  They didn't appear to be mourning and I would think someone would've broken down and cried genuine tears if Michael was gone.  And everybody cries on Oprah so all the more stranger than there didn't seem to be real honest heart ache there.  I will be surprised and disappointed if Frank is doing this for attention/money.

I see your point as well Andrea =]
As I said,I do hope Michael is behind it and it is being done the way it is being projected to the world now.A lot is going to happen between January and Fall so maybe more will come to light on what inspired it...or who....
I've seen a few negative status's suggesting what I said earlier,about him being another book writing friend so it has already started.

I agree with the Oprah show also,they didn't seem to cut up about losing him after spending so much time with him,in secret,seeing him like no one else did..hanging out in his PJ's doing whatever,talking about those memories should have triggered at least a sniffle and required a kleenex from Oprah's 'team' haha.

Up to now,I think I can count on one hand the people who have cried,tried to cry and who looked genuinley distraught by his death since June 2009.

They were listed as attending the Staples one but I don't think I looked for them,and I haven't checked the FL footage either for them.When I look at that I just end up watching the actress who's name is escaping me right now saying 'I was crying,and then he said he's alive,and we all went together to...'what looks like her saying hayvenhurst

I get distracted i'm sure you can see why lol!

Something else to look into,i'm sure they would have been invited,but then,saying that....everyone else who should of been there was missing so maybe not??

I saw that FL footage of that actress and she was just too exuberant (for being at a funeral) as she was talking and it does appear she is mouthing those words.

And it does seem that a lot of the *key* people in Michael's life (apart from his family) were no-shows, particularly the Memorial.  I remember watching it live way back in the "early" days of the hoax...seems like such a long time ago and yet it seems like time has flown so quickly...and I remember thinking "where is Elizabeth Taylor, where's Macaulay Culkin, where is Diana Ross," etc and I totally rationalized to myself at the time that they weren't there because they knew Michael was NOT dead.  Wow, just going back in my head to that time was a bit of a trip!  I was totally overwhelmed at the possibilities and that's why I'm still here, and I feel much more confident in every way now.

YES 100% I saw that when I was working my way through footage and things and watched it on repeat trying to get the exact wording but it's clear as day you can see exactly what she says and the camera stayed on her long enough for her to get to the point where she said where they all went to and then went off her to scan the rest of the attendees.CONVINIENT MUCH.

Well,this is what people need to do,think back to the time when they became believers,why they believed and chose to go down the hoax road and remember all those things that stuck out that brought them here in the first place.

Wonder if Teddy will have anything to say on Frank's book......

I don't know if they were at the memorial or the funeral, but they wrote something for the memorial booklet:


“Doo Doo,
It is only once in a lifetime where you meet a true Angel sent from the Heavens above. I count my blessings each day for I have experienced Heaven on Earth. The wisdom, guidance, and knowledge will always be remembered and put into action. I thank you for the memories, for they will remain in my heart forever and ever.
Our friendship will always be treasured. I write on behalf of my family.
We promise to always remain ‘The First Family of Love’.
From the Bottom of our Hearts
WE THANK YOU and will love you FOREVER and ALWAYS.

I SEE ITS QUATE OPPOSITE  -  
I didnt feel its will be comfortable for Michael  to priceing himself at coming back point or take selfpromotion...

BUT  in real situation,  for  all  my undestanding, its  message to us , that   BY THIS TIME MJ wl be still in hiding.

Jackie Jackson 'never heard' of Michael's secret family

By Ann Oldenburg, USA TODAY

Were you shocked as we were on Dec. 6 when Oprah revealed the Cascios, the super-secret family Michael Jackson visited for 25 years in New Jersey?

So was his brother Jackie Jackson.

"I didn't know them," Jackie tells USA TODAY's Andrea Mandell, his soft voice stiffening.

He'd never heard of them? "Nope."

Since we are talking about Shikster, I decided to do a little research on this screen name. Here is something really interesting I found:

Quote
Name : Shikster McShikkadance
ID # : TS6804 (6 + 8 + 0 + 4 = 18 = 1+ 8 = 9)
Divisions :
Profile :
I am a Ringling Bros Barnum and Bailey's clown college graduate. I love comedy......good music....and hopes of one day joining Dr. Steel in his show!
Source: http://www.toysoldiersunite.com/index.p ... y&mid=6804
That profile is interesting indeed.

Now you may be wondering who is Dr. Steel and what could he possibly do with this hoax?  

Quote
Dr. Steel is a man of many talents with one simple goal. To make the world a better place. Through entertaiment, vision and passion, Dr. Steel feeds the hungry masses who starve for happiness.

"It all comes down to having fun. We spend our lives trapped, when all we really want to do is play. So, let the people play! Let us build a Utopian Playland." ~Dr. Steel
Substitute Michael Jackson here..

Source: http://worlddominationtoys.com/drsteel/about/about.htm


And please look at the video on this page: http://www.toysoldiersunite.com/about as well as this video where he talks about the MEDIA: http://worlddominationtoys.com/drsteel/about/vid4.htm and you may want to check out the videos on the right side as well.
I watched his video on Media and he is spot on CORRECT about everything he said.

Also, doesn't his voice sounds like the guy who was making those V for Vendetta youtube clips? Just a thought...

Sorta sounded like him.
Collective consciousness is what he stressed, that we can THINK with our minds and make a TANGIBLE REALITY.
Or we can be controlled by FEAR?

It's about perception and that is what becomes our reality.
I liked his crazy theory, lol
He can be who he wants to be because he is CRAZY, certifiable.
Peace
I am not saying that Frank is Dr. Steel from the post I did above but, the name he wrote 'Dr. Heat' reminded me of this. The website is a trip and the videos on the media are right on the money. I am not going to form an opinion of Frank at the moment. However I do see alot of parallels again to Elvis. Almost all of Elvis so called friends and confidants wrote a book for profit. Just sayin Frank also has a history with Michael back during the 2005 trial. He went by Frank Tyson.

http://www.thesmokinggun.com/documents/ ... other-kids
Quote
Documents and TSG sources identified the two children as siblings of Frank Cascio, a 24-year-old Jackson aide who prosecutors branded an unindicted co-conspirator in the entertainer's April 2004 criminal indictment. Cascio, who uses the name Frank Tyson, has been close to Jackson for nearly ten years, and was at Neverland during the early-2003 period when the accuser and his family claim they were held against their will.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 28, 2011

I have just learned that the book ELVIS FACE TO FACE which was originally published by Wanda June Hill in 1985 is now available for download on PDF for free to everyone anywhere in the world. I believe that Wanda June has added more to the original edition of the book...I am not positive of this. Though it is for free, a donation is requested.

As I have stated previously on my site, Wanda June Hill's books and other materials are just an amazing insight into the inner man....the real man...not just the superstar image of which Elvis grew so weary. In this book you will learn a lot about Elvis's spiritual interests...a very important part of his life and which he discussed with Wanda June many times during the many years that they were close friends.

I recommend this book so very highly to everyone who seeks to truly know the man...the real man.

Below is the link to the site to download the book as well as a copy of the page to which you will be taken:

The difference between this free book and the others, it is done with L.O.V.E. The lady is giving this book away and only asking for a donation. Not necessary but nice if you want. I appreciate this free book to get to know Elvis the man. I especially like the Elvis prayer and the rest of church. God Bless Elvis/Jesse.

This is Elvis‘ prayer, in his own words and using his unique reasoning abilities.

―Lord, My God, Thy will be done. Please help with your almighty power. I ask
for my friend who needs you. Grant your love, heal with your fiery breath of life,
and give them the strength of your blessings today. God, I ask in humble gratitude,
and give thanks to my Father in Heaven. Thy will be done. Amen.

Elvis‘ suggestions:

―Go out into the night, look up into the glory of God‘s Heavens, a treasure freely
given, to each of us to behold, to find faith and strength in knowing that our most
High One who made such beauty for the world to share, can also bring enduring
peace to each needy soul who asks for help wih a heart full of tears and a spirit
surrendered to His will. For His Son has promised, ―even as I do, ye may do, if ye
believe.

This prayer is for all who need God‘s help. Be it for another or yourself; the key is
in having faith, believing with a humble heart, and in accepting that - it shall be
done.

St. John, Chapter 8, Vs 32. ―And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you
free.

St. Matthew, Chapter 17, Vs 20. 1951 King James Bible, underlined by Elvis…

And Jesus said unto them, ―Because of your unbelief: For verily I say unto you. If
ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove
hence to younder place; and it shall remove, and nothing shall be impossible unto
you.

Quote
I just saw on E-Bay that another copy of Gail Brewer-Giorgio's 1988 New York Times bestseller IS ELVIS ALIVE? is listed for sale. Included with this book is the audio tape of the phone conversations on which Elvis was speaking with a friend around 1981.

For those who missed out on this when it was the talk of the world, here is an opportunity to catch up at a very reasonable price. The tape is a treasure. it was verified by the Houston police through voice analysis that the voice on the tape is Elvis.

It is believed that Elvis was speaking with a friend named Ellen Marie Foster who was a friend before he left in August, 1977. Elvis had called her prior to that day and told her not to believe what she would be seeing in the news. He told her that he was not going on the tour. She asked him if he had canceled the tour and he told her that he had not.

When I was publishing my newsletter in 1990-1991, one of my subscribers was a lady who was close friends with Ellen Marie Foster. The subscriber sent me letters which Ms. Foster had written to her in order that I could see them for myself. I have lost contact with that subscriber but would very much like to be in touch with her again. If she is reading this, she is certainly welcome to contact me through Facebook or YouTube. Her name is Pat....E.... It was reported that Ms. Foster passed away.

On a later Geraldo show, a man supposedly named "Darlock" was brought forth to say that it was him speaking on the tape. That man was just a cover up.
Here is the link to the current E-Bay listing:
cgi.ebay.com/Paperback-Book-and-CassetteTape-ELVIS-ALIVE-Sealed-/270698088107

Once more, I do respect Jesse's wishes that Ms. Giorgio make no more money off of him. Since this is not a new book, no money will go to her.
The above quote about the book on Elvis by Gail is also taken from Linda's website.

Jusssst my opinion

1] All of the flack they caught for the Micheal CD-an attempt at self defense.

2] Money.
Quote
Money...
Lie for it
Spy for it
Kill for it
Die for it
So you call it trust
But I say it's just
In the devil's game
Of greed and lust
They don't care
They'd do me for the money
They don't care
They use me for the money

Well, this is an interesting twist. Although it seems to be kind of late in the game, if MJ is alive, this is not an afterthought. I think it suggests the timing of the return. At least that it won't be before Fall. :arrow:

It makes no sense (to my thinking), for the book to come out AFTER MJ returns, especially if it is written with the slant that MJ had died June 2009. In fact, if MJ BAMs prior to its release, with a theme like that, the publisher would just pull it, for being too unconvincing to be marketable("Obviously, they weren't friends if he didn't even know the death was hoaxed").

If MJ comes back first, the book (the slant of which the publisher would be aware right now!!) would necessarily have to be about MJ, his currently living friend.

MJ and his people have been so cleverly tightlipped about this mystery, I do not buy it that MJ would allow Cascio to make a book deal such as this, exposing the hoax for MJ to a publisher, possibly letting the cat out of the bag, early, and stealing some of the thunder from the actual BAM!!!!!! Therefore, the sentiment of the book MUST be about a deceased Michael Jackson. This means that MJ won't be back until after the book is released and makes its waves through the reading public...Only, :?

If MJ comes back after the book comes out in the fall, that throws a monkey wrench into the 777th day numerological expectation, of a BAM or SOMEthing happening on August 11, 2011.  My question is, what else could the 777th day be for, if not "The Takeover/Return" day? Is this an idea someone here, on this Team formulated or did we get this from an official source? (I can't remember, sorry).

And, do you think things have changed enough, with less than 5,000 official BeLIEvers on board, that it would lead MJ to believe it is time to return? I want to see him back as much as anyone, but does he feel he has accomplished his goals, here, yet?  I know TS seemed to give some of us this disheartened kind of vibe in December: people complain about his long posts, don't believe his information or when he redirects, and he said he wasn't going to take the time to do daily posts any longer, so I didn't even know they were still happening...

I know MJ has this thing planned from beginning, to middle to end, so I don't "get" the unexpected unrest of his informant in midstream. Did something happen which we all missed?

MJ had the psychology all worked out, before he gave the signal to go ahead with the Hoax :!:  HE stirred up the flak about the album, MICHAEL on purpose. None of that surprised him. This Cascio book SEEMS to be an afterthought to convince folk that the Cascio songs are legit, but knowing how MJ planned everything, it is very unlikely.

This book must be a planned part of the hoax. It means Frank is writing about his dead friend. It means MJ won't be back until winter,  :( at the very soonest.

It makes good sense. More people will be indoors, in front of the tube and internet, just ripe for a BAM...But he won't do this on TV, will he? He's not going to buy up a zillion dollars of TV time anonymously, and he can't do it in his own name or it will blow the surprise.  :idea: Is he going to TAKE OVER the airwaves, interrupting regularly scheduled programming, electronically :?:  :shock:  8-)  Isn't that, uh, illegal?  :o  :D  :D  :lol:

When is the last Oprah show? I keep thinking that it's where BAM will happen or if not then, will move on into 2012 as we know Michael's knowledge about 2012.

The only specific thing MJ said about time was, "We have 4 years to get it right." And if you use inclusive reckoning, that would mean sometime in mid 2012. Personally I think all the numerology of especially 777, July 7, 2011, etc. are just landmarks, or steppingstones, times for special events, special clues. After all the disappointments of 2009, I told myself to put the BAM to the latest times so I won't feel sad, and if he comes earlier--Great!! I have learned so much and continue to learn so much, that if he had come that first Halloween, I think we all would have missed out on so much. He's been preparing for 21 plus years maybe, so it's not going to be finished quickly either. Like Oprah said, "This is BIG, this is really BIG!!"

So I think it's going to be another MJ's dead book, to give us more insight into his heart and dealings with people. I love reading that kind of stuff, can't get enough of MJ.

i wanted to put it here cause it seems like the reality isn't goin to fit the impression given before.

Why not just tell people I'm an alien from Mars? Tell them I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight. They'll believe anything you say, because you're a reporter. But if I, Michael Jackson, were to say, "I'm an alien from Mars and I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight," people would say, "Oh, man, that Michael Jackson is nuts. He's cracked up. You can't believe a single word that comes out of his mouth."

New book by Michael Jackson’s personal assistant offer personal look at singer’s life

By Associated Press, Updated: Saturday, November 12, 9:01 AM

NEW YORK — A personal assistant-turned-personal manager to Michael Jackson said the King of Pop had been taking propofol as early as 1999, and that the singer was drugged up ahead of his 2001 30th anniversary concerts.

Frank Cascio, who became a family friend to Jackson at age 5 and eventually one of the singer’s closest friends and employees, writes in a new book that he first noticed Jackson taking the drug Demerol while accompanying the singer on his “Dangerous” tour in 1993.

(Danny Moloshok, file/Associated Press) - FILE - In this Nov. 8, 2007 file photo, pop star Michael Jackson poses on the red carpet during the RainbowPUSH Coalition Los Angeles 10th annual awards in Los Angeles. Frank Cascio, a personal assistant turned personal manager to Michael Jackson said the King of Pop had been taking propofol as early as 1999, and that the singer was drugged up ahead of his 2001 30th anniversary concerts.

He writes in his new book, “My Friend Michael: An Ordinary Friendship with an Extraordinary Man,” that Jackson started the first of two anniversary shows in 2001 an hour late as a result of being drugged up in his dressing room.

“My naive belief that Michael wouldn’t let his medicine interfere with the show blew up in my face,” Cascio writes. “I can’t begin to describe my disappointment and panic at this moment.”

The Associated Press bought an advance copy of the book, which is set for release Nov. 15 by William Morrow, an imprint of News Corp.’s HarperCollins.

Cascio became a friend of Jackson’s after his father introduced him to the singer; Cascio’s father worked at the Hemsley Palace in Manhattan, managing the hotel’s towers and suites, where Jackson stayed. Following that, a 5-year-old Cascio and his younger brother Eddie, spent time with Jackson at his Neverland Ranch.

He says Jackson was first introduced to Demerol in 1984 when he burned his head during a Pepsi commercial shoot, and Cascio writes that he first noticed Jackson using the medicine on his “Dangerous” tour.

“Now, on tour, and again in deep physical pain, Michael turned back to those drugs,” he wrote.

Cascio says Jackson also took propofol in 1999 in Munich when the singer was 50 feet in the air and instead of coming down slowly, the platform Jackson was on fell down. Cascio also writes that Jackson had taken Demerol to treat the skin disease vitiligo, and grew worried about his drug use.

“It had become clear to me that Michael’s drug use was escalating,” he wrote. Cascio said sometimes he paid doctors in cash “because all of Michael’s medical issues had to be kept from the public and their cost off the books.” He also said he had some of the prescriptions written out in his name.

“Over the years, I had grown accustomed to seeing doctors coming and going, particularly in late tours, when Michael was under great stress and needed help falling asleep.”

Cascio said he wanted to seek out help, but didn’t know who to turn to. Ahead of Jackson’s 2001 anniversary shows, he said he spoke to Janet, Randy and Tito about their brother’s drug use. He writes that Jackson’s siblings approached him, but the singer “simply pushed them away.”

The pop star’s doctor, Conrad Murray, was convicted Monday of involuntary manslaughter for supplying the insomnia-plagued Jackson with the powerful operating-room anesthetic propofol to help him sleep as he rehearsed for his big comeback.

“But in the end, physical and mental anguish prevailed, and Michael died in his endless quest to attain some inner peace,” Cascio writes.

"But in the end, physical and mental anguish prevailed, and Michael died in his endless quest to attain some inner peace," Cascio writes.

My Friend Michael also takes a look at some of Jackson's personal and professional moments, providing a somewhat behind-the-scenes insight into the King of Pop's life.

Cascio writes that he and Jackson "had gotten stoned on a few occasions up in the mountains", and that Jackson would drink wine out of juice bottles and soda cans.

Cascio and the singer grew close, and in 1993 when Jackson had been accused of child molestation charges, he asked the Cascio family to visit him in Israel while he was on tour. He later asked if the young boys could stay on tour with him.

"He went to my father and broke down crying," Cascio writes. "People might question my parents' judgment in sending two young boys off to spend time alone with a man who had been accused of molesting another boy. But to us, the suggestion that we were in any danger was completely absurd."

Jackson invited Cascio to work as his personal assistant a year after he graduated from high school. He later became the pop star's personal manager.

Throughout the book, Cascio writes that Jackson never had sex with children, but had a love for them and wanted to father 10 kids in total.

Cascio says Princess Diana was at the top of Jackson's list of women he wanted to date, and that Jackson made out with one of his fan club members.

"He tended to like tall, slender women whom I'd describe as nerdy in a sexy way," he writes.

Cascio also says Jackson used to claim that dancer and rapper Omer Bhatti, long rumoured to be his love child by a Norwegian woman, was his son, though Cascio did not believe him. Jackson later admitted that it wasn't true.

"By way of an explanation, Michael gave me the same reason he'd given for his marriages to Lisa Marie and Debbie Rowe. He needed to show the Saudi prince and the rest of the Arab business world that he had a family," Cascio writes.

When he worked as his personal manager, Cascio said he had to interfere when John McClain, now the co-executor of Jackson's estate, and the director of Jackson's You Rock My World music video, wanted the singer "to use makeup to darken Michael's skin for the video" and "to fill in his nose with putty". Cascio said Jackson locked himself in a bathroom and cried.

"They think I'm ugly?" Jackson asked. "They think I'm a freak, they think I'm a freak, they think I'm a freak."

^^That's so sad

My front web page has the title..Michael Jackson had a crush on Lady Dianna......oh, at least that proves Michael was a full on hetrosexual as what man wouldn't have a crush on her.. /toldya/ /toldya/

By the way, Frank Cascios real name is Frank Tyson ....he had it changed...

How does this help the hoax if everyone around MJ are confirming he was a drug addict??

This will help lessen Murray's jail time????

This family has close ties to the Gotti Mafia family...something to keep an eye on.  God bless

My take on all these books coming out now that Michael is "dead" is that each and every one of them have their own motives for their book and the motives in turn shape the content of the book. I still like to read them and I dont necessarily believe everything they say, I use my own judgement. One that has always gotten on my nerves though is Rabbi Schmuley Boteach, I cant put my finger on it but there's something off about him, I'm suspiscious of him. Perhaps Cascio is legit though, I always give everyone the benefit of the doubt at first, maybe he wanted to humanize Michael. I think if there is going to be a BAM's day it is important that the world develops a new understanding and respect of Michael and see him through new glasses, all the bad widespread opinions and beliefs must disappear if the BAM is to have it's proper and full effect.

I also think the choice of cover was interesting (taken from the Memorial book).

Thank you for bringing up the memorial cover. It does bring this around full circle, doesn't it. I too try to give people the benefit of the doubt but am usually pretty cautious when I see things that don't add up. In the end truth is truth and it comes out so I'm confident the same will happen here.

Here are some comments that the family said on the Oprah show that contradict what is now being said.

Since Michael's death, there have been reports that Michael was addicted to drugs, but the Cascio family says they never saw any signs of drug abuse. "It was unfortunate to learn of the so-called problem or addiction that we now know he suffered from," Eddie says.

I just finished the book, THUMBS UP! It's a quick and easy read taking you inside a relationship from start to finish to start. I wonder if Mike ever wrote a book about his relationship with Diana Ross, if it would read like this. Reminds me of that sans the work portion.

Listen to this interview with Frank Cascio, very interesting  - he talks in present tense quite a bit. Also listen to towards end of interview when asked about whether he would have written the book if MJ had not passed  and he said no and "That was the DEAL"  suspicious// OMG! (thanks to @seekingtruthMJ on Twitter to pointing this out to me)  Also he says Michael was a messenger from God and I agree with this!!  http://livestre.am/18aRO

I'll be honest,I don't know how I feel about this yet.
I think throwing the charity donation idea/wish/plan in with it is to minimise the backlash he is going to get from Michael's fans about ANOTHER 'friend' writing about him,giving away private moments,making money off of him.

Yes,Michael would agree to giving proceeds to charity,of course but does Frank really need to use private memories,'memoirs' and never before seen pictures of him,attach Michael's name to it to do that?What's wrong with a private personal donation to the Haiti fund?

Unless Michael has given permission for him to write this book,which I really can't see him doing since he likes his privacy when he can get it,I don't see how it is any different to KF chatting shit on twitter or any other book written about him by an 'insider' 'friend' whatever.
I hope he has,and the book is justified and the donation to the charity is partly Michael's wish with Frank's.We shall see what happens between now and Fall....

I fully share your doubts!! especially after I read AppleHead's quote from this book, here on this thread: http://www.michaeljacksonhoaxforum.com/smf2.0/index.php?topic=22252.msg391727#msg391727

I kind of distrust people who talk about Michael as being paranoid or that he "had to be protected from himself!" Those are stupid things to say about Michael, especially in a book that you sell and gain profit out of it!
I doubt this man had good intentions when he wrote that book!

David Gest claimed to be such a very close friend with MJ, and yet I was turned off by how it seemed to me he really didn't know him at all, always talking about MJ jumping women's bones and liking vaginas. :evil:
Then Conrad Murray (whoever he is ;) ) said he was MJ's "ONLY" trusted friend, told all of that super personal embarrassing health problems of MJ (I don't believe for 1 minute :lol: ).


So now we have Frank, just another one with another perspective.


What's with all MJ's close friends--they almost all feel like betrayers to me. Money... :roll: 
I'm hoping MJ's guiding or at least allowing these people to be creative, exaggerate a little for dramatic controversial effect.
Then as TS warns us to do, we have to study and sift through what is true or not. crash/

I'll be honest,I don't know how I feel about this yet.
I think throwing the charity donation idea/wish/plan in with it is to minimise the backlash he is going to get from Michael's fans about ANOTHER 'friend' writing about him,giving away private moments,making money off of him.

Yes,Michael would agree to giving proceeds to charity,of course but does Frank really need to use private memories,'memoirs' and never before seen pictures of him,attach Michael's name to it to do that?What's wrong with a private personal donation to the Haiti fund?

Unless Michael has given permission for him to write this book,which I really can't see him doing since he likes his privacy when he can get it,I don't see how it is any different to KF chatting shit on twitter or any other book written about him by an 'insider' 'friend' whatever.
I hope he has,and the book is justified and the donation to the charity is partly Michael's wish with Frank's.We shall see what happens between now and Fall....

I fully share your doubts!! especially after I read AppleHead's quote from this book, here on this thread: http://www.michaeljacksonhoaxforum.com/smf2.0/index.php?topic=22252.msg391727#msg391727

I kind of distrust people who talk about Michael as being paranoid or that he "had to be protected from himself!" Those are stupid things to say about Michael, especially in a book that you sell and gain profit out of it!
I doubt this man had good intentions when he wrote that book!
 >:(


Simpa I really hope you will change your mind,if you ever read Frank's book.Please remember that Michael had alot of vampires aroud him and maybe sometimes had good reason to feel paranoid"  :( .Here Tink wrote better than me:

ALL of these leeches need to be made an example of. NOW I know why Michael felt so imprisoned, and unable to trust anyone but his children.
Prayers for you, luv. Wish I could simply wave my magic wand, and fix everything!!

Managers are supposed to take only a flat fee - I see what happened; it's truly criminal, what people did, and attempted to do to Michael. They were bloody damn vampires, sucking the life out of him!

Thank you very much for your wonderful posts and take care  :)  bearhug  !!!

Thank you AppleHead.
Still... whatever good things he may have written about Michael in that book, won't excuse him, in my eyes, for what he said bad about him. So... this leaves his true intentions ambiguous to say the least!! IMO
