The other night, I went along to a Friars Club event at the Waldorf Astoria. It was a big night because they were going to roast one of my heroes, Robert De Niro. Unfortunately, Mr. De Niro didn’t walk the red carpet and was ushered through a side door.

I had to get an interview with someone of note. In front of me came Michael Jackson‘s father (among MANY other Jacksons, but, you know…), Joe Jackson. For an old guy, he was still moving pretty good and had his nurse or personal trainer on his arm. Or maybe it’s his girlfriend. No one could confirm this information.

She looked strong, yet beautiful.

Like an evil super-villain.

Anyway, I was excited to learn about Joe’s musical tastes from the Temptations to BB King, while also getting him to talk about The Beatles. Also, watch the video above closely. His friend says a few words, I think.
