In 1979, Joe had a smash hit. He never did get used to the after-effects. Even today, he dislikes being recognised and there are relatively few pictures of him. The private Joe Jackson shies away from the public eye and appears only as a performer. Now he's making an exception.
„Great, great, great...“
„Jackson has never been gone, he has always been around, it is just that we have had very little coverage of him... again and again, he has reinvented himself and his music.. he continually changed his musical orientation, irrespective of whether or not it promised success. He says that fame is unhealthy for the artist, it transforms one from an observer to the observed.“
