CSU OFFERS COURSE ON MICHAEL JACKSON
Clark-Atlanta University is tapping into the legacy Michael Jackson as both a successful businessman and pop icon. Prominent entertainment attorney, James Walker, will teach the class, “Micheal Jackson: The Business of Music,” concentrating on a curriculum that focuses on Jackson’s approach to business, from how he worked with record companies, tours, and legally marketing himself in terms of copyrights and trademarks. According to Walker, “The goal is to help students who have an interest or future desire to work in the entertainment industry whether as an artist, attorney, business manager, accountant or other…[and] to really provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the music industry and the business mechanics involved.” Clark-Atlanta University will become the first to offer a class on the legendary pop singer.
James Walker, along with being well versed in the industry, runs a successful law practice, and authored the bestselling book, “The Business of Urban Music.”
Slash revealed that his mother had an affair with David Bowie in an interview on an Australian radio station, recalling that he once discovered them naked when he was a little kid. "My mom started working professionally with David Bowie at first," said Slash, whose mom was a costume designer. "I'm pretty sure that's how it started and then it turned into some sort of mysterious romance that went on for a while after that." The guitarist remembers seeing a lot of Bowie at the time – quite literally, on one occasion. "I caught them naked once," Slash said. "They had a lot of stuff going on, but my perspective at eight was limited. Looking back on it I knew exactly what was going on." Despite the potentially awkward encounter, Slash remembers Bowie fondly. "He was cool," the rocker said. "I liked David a lot."
