These recollections not only help fill in some of the biographical gaps in Jackson s life but demonstrate with unflinching detail the real-life price of fame. --Joseph Vogel, author of Man in the Music: the creative life & work of Michael Jackson
'To say it’s captivating is an understatement … The stories Whitfield and Beard relay are startling to read now, but they’re also highly amplified by what fantastic storytellers they are … The book is strictly a fly-on-the-wall account of everything they saw in the world surrounding Jackson during one of the least understood, shoddily documented, rumor-filled periods of his life … It’s a simple notion, fair, but it’s rare in the telling of anything related to the life of Michael Jackson. It’s a fair account of what they saw and what they felt while seeing it, an account that truly separates it from the rest.'(Rembert Browne Grantland)
'[A] measured and compassionate account that succeeds in teasing apart the mocking tag of Wacko Jacko that dogged the singer performer ... In the end [Michael Jackson], far from being "invincible" ... was beyond salvation.'(Thuy On The Age/Sun-Herald)
'Remember the Time foregoes sensationalism in favour of a sympathetic, but unsentimental examination of life behind the gates in Michael Jackson’s final years. Colby’s portrait ― told through conversational accounts by Jackson’s former bodyguards, Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard ― is by turns straightforward, humorous, absorbing and tragic. A single father facing enormous financial pressures and a vagabond existence while trying to find some peace and joy with his three young children, Jackson is revealed, not the as ‘freak show’ the media so often presented him, but as human. These recollections not only help fill in some of the biographical gaps in Jackson’s life but demonstrate with unflinching detail the real-life price of fame.(Joseph Vogel, author of Man in the Music: the creative life & work of Michael Jackson) See all Product description

"...The two other bodyguards I worked with ... are coming out with a book in conjunction with those that never had Mr. Jackson's best interest and stole from him. In the past years, I've been asked about the other two bodyguards and always remained silent. Now I can no longer do that.... Its the greed of just them two, and they care of only money.... For the record, I am NOT involved in their book and I'm in disbelief that they have sided with the ones who took advantage of Mr. Jackson. Just when I thought these two couldn't disrespect Mr. Jackson even more, they do it again. Sad and the karma, in the name of Mr. Jackson will come to ... both."
Food for thought.
