I grew up knowing Helen Jackson and that is Michael's cousin. I also visited the Jackson's
home several times when they lived in Gary, Indiana. Although I did speak to Michael on
more than one occasion, he was a bit younger than I.
I saw 'The Byrds' and 'The Animals' and 'The Turtles' many years ago before they were
real famous. I spoke with some of the band members of 'The Byrds'.
One time I called one of the home shopping network channels and while waiting to place
an order, they ask if I wanted to speak with Dick Clark. He was selling some sort of pain
cream. I talked to him over live TV and I ordered the product too!
