Drummer[edit]

I went to Fairfax High in 1969/1979. Johnny, Jackie and Tito also attended at the time. I used to hang out in the morning at the little store or cafe directly across the street from the school with Dee Dee and Kathy. Kathy was Johnny's girl friend and Dee Dee was Tito's. Dee Dee and Kathy would wait over there for Joe to drop the boys off. There is no mention of Johnny. He was the original drummer. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.122.61.129 (talk) 13:48, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Jackson 5 Movie.[edit]

In 1974 there were talks of a movie project which included The Jackson brothers, Bill Cosby, Cecily Tyson and Janet Jackson. The movie was to be called Isomon Cross and Sons. Raymond St. Jacques was going to star and direct this movie which was staged to be set in the 1850's, while the Jackson were going to play his sons and provide songs. It was also understood that Joe Jackson was going to produce this movie. j5collector I've been searching the web to provide credible sources to back up the validity of this information but the most in depth source I've found was from J5 Collector Blogspot. Also I came across a Youtube video where Michael Jackson mentions this information himself while interviewing on Soul Train with Don Cornelius.[1] The information on J5 Collector Blogspot gives some sketchy details as to why the movie never happened but is very informative, including hi-resolution images displaying the articles from the original magazine. However, I was wondering if this information could be included on the main article?

Triumph[edit]

Looking at the Triumph article, there seems to be some confusion with dates. It says it was released in October 1980 - with three singles already released (really?). On the "Can You Feel It" article it mentions that it was the first single (third surely) released in September 1980 but then says released as a single in 1981 with all the chart dates from 81. The dates seem specific September 22 for example, but where have these come from? I'm sure that single was around March 81. The only refs in their discography are the UK charts - which are different again ("Walk Right Noew" being around June 81 for example). Does anybody know the correct dates or get some refs for the US chart positions (Allmusic doesn't mention any chart action for either of the first two singles). All in all it's a mess.--Tuzapicabit (talk) 09:57, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
