Interview with Corey Rooney and Chris Apostle

  • on: March 10, 2010, 04:04:30 AM
This is a nice interview (8/7/'09) to read (or to listen), just wanted to share with everyone who hasn't read it before.
This is just a small part of it, it's about the 50 TII concerts:

CY: Fair to say that the business because he had all the financial issues that he was kind of pushed into a corner? He said he wanted to do 10 shows, but then it became 50 for this thing in London that was supposed to happen next month. Did he feel like he was backed in a corner because he had to fulfill financial issues?


CA: “Listen, I’m sure he decided to do this comeback tour and net a bunch of cash, which he honestly deserves to have. I still think that like Cory said, he was pushed to the brink by people that were extremely powerful and he was not treated fairly. We always started in this business and someone Cory and I knew very well said, ‘You can’t do anything in this business without the artist even if the artist are what you considered to be the worst thing in the world and stuff like that. You still need the artist.’ Well, it seems to me the big cheeses in the business forgot that at some point where he was concerned.”


CR: “This was years ago. I’m going to go back probably eight years ago and Michael told me, ‘Cory, I can’t tour anymore. I’m not gonna tour anymore. Ok?’ I said, ‘why Mike?’ He said, ‘Because it will kill me.’ That’s what he said to me. He said, ‘It will kill me.’ Why would you say something like that? He said, ‘Well, remember when I was preparing for my concert and I passed out at the Sony Studio?’ He said, ‘Well, it’s because when I get ready for a tour I get dehydrated. I don’t eat. I don’t drink. I don’t sleep. I put so much of myself into preparing for a tour.’


He said, ‘I’m not doing it on purpose. This is just something I don’t think about anymore. You understand? I’ve just become so driven that I can’t even think about these things anymore. They made me walk around with an IV last time. He said, ‘So I just decided, my doctors decided that maybe you shouldn’t do this anymore. He said he wanted to make the Invincible album work to the point where that was it. He’s done with the tour. He’s gonna do this Invincible album. He wanted to continue to put out albums. He said, ‘I’ll do albums till I can’t do it anymore, but I just can’t tour.’”

If you'd like to read the whole interview here's the link, it's really interesting:

Thanks for sharing this.  Makes you wonder whether MJ even wanted to do the whole tour thing again, or was pushed into it.  Sounds more likely that the whole tour thing was all part of the hoax and was never going to be a tour at all.  Just a movie!!!

I don't think MJ ever had the intention of doing a tour to be honest either.  Especially that many shows at 50 years old.  He also hasn't toured since the mid 90's.  Like I said before when he said This is it at the O2 conference it was for a reason.  He didn't even like being on tour.

This interview could mean two things:

a) Michael feared for his life (if he'd have to go on with TII concerts) and found a way out by faking his death

or

b) The stress and the strain of the upcoming tour did kill him

I often wonder why Michael didnt just put out a new album instead of the O2 tour....    he would have netted a whole load of cash from a new album.

He should have done an acoustic, vocal album.  He would have made billions from that.
