“I’m a Michael Jackson fan. I love Michael. He replaced Elvis for me, and I was massive Elvis fan – I still am, actually. Michael has more great songs than I can even thing of, but I especially love the way he sings Black Or White. The conviction, the message – he’s really letting you in on something important.
“Picking the best Michael Jackson songs is difficult – there's so many. Smooth Criminal is a funky number. Oh, they’re all great. But Black Or White is a really hot tune. The guitar, the beat – it makes me want to move. I feel like dancing when I hear it. I want to dance like Michael!
“I’m a hippie; I go back to the ‘60s. I remember Miles Davis telling me, ‘The best bands are mixed.’ That meant a lot to me, so when I hear people spreading that same message, and Michael Jackson is doing it on this song, it hits me right in the heart.”
