... 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.

Michael Jackson's Children Expected to Testify About His Final Days

All eyes will be on Michael Jackson's two eldest children as they are expected to be the star witnesses in a wrongful death suit filed by the family against the concert promoters who sponsored the singer's ill-fated "This Is It" tour.
The trial, which begins today in Los Angeles, is expected to last three to four months. Prince, 16, and his 14-year-old sister, Paris, are expected to testify about their father's final days leading up to his 2009 overdose death.

Peace In,
Brutha Clyde, I'm going to bring up the elephant in the room. Could Mike share in the responsibility of his death also? Lets look at the transformation of his face over the years, changes that he has elected to do on his own as an consenting adult. Now are we to believe that he could not tell, or that he didn't know that doing all of those drugs was bad for him?

Here is some more insight as to his knowledge of drugs, and his health :


King of Pop Michael Jackson had a secret medical implant to stop him getting pleasure from opiates, according to reports.

The 'Thriller' star was fitted with the device, which dosed him with Narcan, in 2003 to battle the drug addiction that led to his death aged 50, reported Sun Online.
http://www.business-standard.com/article/beyond-business/michael-jackson-had-anti-drug-implant-report-113041100166_1.html

Lets face it, Mike had more to do with what went on with him than anybody know. He wasn't some babe in the woods.

Here is his drug portfolio:



King of Pop's Drug Cocktail

According to news reports, Michael Jackson died of "lethal levels" of the powerful anesthetic propofol. Here's a rundown of the additional drugs Jackson reportedly used.

I know she's hurt, and she feels some one should pay. I have no problem with that, the only gripe I have is when Mike, or anyone else that this happens to is portrayed as if they had no say so as to what was happening to him.
Peace!

Without a doubt Enki, you'll get not counter-point argument from me saying otherwise. In reading all of this, its also documented somewhere, God was talking with Michael; according to Mike:

Thanks brutha Clyde for not getting offended, but I was just stating what I thought was being over looked. I don't mean to minimize her pain and lost. But pain has a way of placing blame where it shouldn't be, or all the blame when there is plenty to go around. You know, my moma could tell when something was right with her kids, I'm sure she was able to do the same also.

I'm re-posting this article of yours in hope to prove my point.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A stage manager working on Michael Jackson's ill-fated "This Is It" concert warned an AEG executive days before the star's death that he was in a physical and mental decline and needed help.
The question is, could they have done anything is three days? My guess is no, do you think Mike would have canceled his practicees?


Below you have a person saying that he saw Mike's health deteriorate over an 8 week span, why didn't he raise alarms back then, instead of three days before his death? It is after the fact is when people say "I should have done more". Well that is a safe time to say it.


"I have watched him deteriorate in front of my eyes over the last eight weeks," said John Hougdahl in an email to Randy Phillipsdated June 19, 2009. Jackson died five days later.

I have a theory of why people kowtowed to Mike. They did it because of who he was, they didn't want to get fired and loose the chance to put on their resume that they worked on his shows,etc. You get the picture.

Peace
