... Is this strange, or not so strange?

Still, Jackson family lawyer Brian Panish noted that Gongaware linked to two legends when he responded to emailed condolence messages from friends, following Jackson's death. Gongaware wrote: "I was working on the Elvis tour when he died so I kind of knew what to expect. Still quite a shock."
When questioned by AEG's lawyer, Marvin Putman, Gongaware clarified that he didn't expect Jackson to die like Presley, rather he was referring to the shock of people losing their jobs due to the tour's cancellation.



Michael Jackson Trial Brings Up Questions About the Death of Elvis

Michael Jackson had a strange fascination with Elvis. He gave himself the nickname the "King of Pop," a clear reference to Presley's "King of Rock 'n' Roll" moniker. He even married Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie. And now, in death, the two are linked by concert promoter Paul Gongaware, who has the dubious distinction of being tied to both legends' final, ill-fated tours.

... Phillips tried hard to overcome the label of hostile witness, wow:


He will likely be asked about numerous emails he sent and received about Jackson's health in the final weeks of the superstar's life, as well as any interactions he had with former cardiologist Conrad Murray.
Murray agreed to serve as Jackson's doctor for $150,000 a month while he performed 50 shows titled "This Is It" in London's 02 Arena in 2009 and early 2010.
AEG denies hiring Murray and agreeing to pay Murray's fee as an advance to Jackson.



AEG Live CEO: Jackson lawsuit is extortion attempt

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The head of AEG Live told a jury on Tuesday that he believes a lawsuit filed by Michael Jackson's mother against the concert promotion company was a baseless extortion attempt.
CEO Randy Phillips also said the company bears no responsibility for Jackson's 2009 death, as his mother contends.
Katherine Jackson is suing AEG Live LLC, claiming it failed to properly investigate the doctor who was later convicted of her son's death. AEG denies wrongdoing.
Phillips said he agreed with statements attributed to him and defense attorney Marvin S. Putnam that the case was a shakedown.
"Yes or no, answer? Yes," Phillips said in response to a question by Katherine Jackson's attorney Brian Panish.

Phillips is the highest-ranking AEG executive to testify in the case, now in its sixth week.

Expert: Promoter created conflict with Jackson doc

Expert: AEG Live's involvement with Michael Jackson's doctor a conflict of interest
By Anthony Mccartney, AP Entertainment Writer | Associated Press – 2 hrs 58 mins ago


___The company's lawyers have yet to question Berman but already have objected to his expertise. An AEG Live defense attorney has noted that Berman was never a tour producer or promoter — functions that AEG Live was serving as during preparations for Jackson's comeback shows.
Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos reminded jurors on Monday that they will ultimately decide whether AEG Live hired Murray.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The promoter of Michael Jackson's ill-fated series of comeback shows created a conflict of interest with the singer's physician when it negotiated terms of his deal, an expert testifying for the superstar's mother told a jury on Monday.
David Berman told jurors hearing a negligent hiring lawsuit against concert promoter AEG Live LLC that the company should not have negotiated with Jackson's physician without notifying the singer's representatives of the discussion.

The former head of Capitol Records and high-level positions at several other record companies is being paid to testify for Katherine Jackson in her lawsuit against the concert company.

Peace In,

[/quot I'M sorry but yes I have to go there MRS.KATHERINE JACKSON did not show LOVE during the time of her children youth she did not protect her children from their father,and people wonder why the Jackson children are stranger per say emotional damage and not wanting to be black nor want black children, Michael did not have a child hood and became a boy trapped in a man's body, and people saw his weakness knew his weakness and used it to their advantage including some family members and he tried to distance himself,of course he loved his mother for she was kind to him and not abusive but he was still abused and was truly a man lost all the money in the world could not make him happy, EVERY ONE knew he wanted perfect when it came to his music his concerts, and for the love of money everything that glitters is not GOLD.....
