FastPencil and Leonard Rowe announced the availability of Rowe’s book, “What Really Happened to Michael Jackson, the King of Pop: The Evil Side of the Entertainment Industry.”
Rowe, a legendary concert promoter and longtime friend of Michael Jackson and the Jackson family, selected FastPencil to publish the eBook version available for iPad, Kindle and all major eReaders.
“This is a story that must be told. It is a first hand account of the conspiracy and the power of the entertainment industry and I am so glad to be releasing the book on the anniversary of Michael’s death,” said Leonard Rowe.
“It is a raw and eye-opening account of the perils of fame and about the man everyone knew as the ‘King of Pop,’ but whom I knew as a dear friend.”
“What Really Happened to Michael Jackson, the King of Pop: The Evil Side of the Entertainment Industry” chronicles Michael Jackson and the Jackson’s rise to fame, the corruption, the endless media frenzy that surrounded him and what ultimately contributed to his untimely death.
Rowe provides personal and intimate anecdotes and experiences from his 30-year relationship with the Jackson family.
In the book, Rowe, who was with Michael just a few days before he passed, writes that he believes there was a conspiracy behind the murder of Michael Jackson relating to his 50 percent ownership of the entire Sony catalogue, which is now worth billions of dollars.
Legendary concert promoter and close friend to Michael Jackson, Leonard Rowe began working with Michael and the Jackson family in 1979-80.
He is the first and only African American concert promoter to organize and promote an international concert tour with Michael Jackson and “The Jacksons.” The tour, “Off the Wall,” was extremely successful and catapulted Michael’s solo career.
Rowe has continued his relationship with the Jackson family for the past 30-plus years.
Rowe, who was with Michael a few days before his death, was hired by Michael Jackson to oversee his business and financial affairs during the scheduled London concert tour, “This Is It.”
