THE JACKSONS[edit]

Randy officially joined the group when they changed their name to The Jacksons after moving to Epic records. He established himself as a prolific song writer and accomplished musician at a young age having written The Jacksons most successful single on Epic, “Shake Your Body Down To The Ground” at the age of 17. He went on to write and collaborate with his older brother Michael on successive Jackson albums, Triumph and Victory and sang co-lead with Michael on the group’s hit “Can You Feel It.” Randy also assisted Michael instrumentally on the Off the Wall album. He is widely thought of as the most talented instrumentalist of the Jackson brother, playing congas, drums and other percussion instruments, keyboards and piano, bass, guitar. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.15.47.98 (talk) 15:30, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Donte Jackson[edit]

Is it certain that Donte is Randys child? Why exactly was he adopted by Jermaine. All info on this boy is very muddled and mixed. This article states that he is Randy Jr's twin. However in Katherine Jacksons artice it states that Donte is a year younger than Randy jr and is Randys adopted son?

Katherines page 'Randy Jackson and Alejandra Oaziaza had three children: Genevieve Jackson (b. December 3, 1989) Donte Jackson (b. June 13, 1992) - an adopted child Steven Randall Jackson, Jr. (b. October 2, 1991)'—Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.251.156.165 (talk) 11:12, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

In Jermaines page Donte is not mentioned at all. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.251.156.165 (talk) 11:28, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

Randy Jackson (musician)Randy Jackson (musician, born 1961) — Last year there was a move discussion at Talk:Randy Jackson (disambiguation) over who is the primary topic of the name Randy Jackson. The move I'm suggesting now was hinted at then but sort of lost in the larger discussion. The present title of the article on Randy Jackson of The Jacksons implies by exclusion that Randy Jackson (of American Idol fame) and Randy Jackson (rock musician) (of Zebra) are not musicians, when in fact they are. I couldn't find a year of birth for the Zebra musician, otherwise I would have suggested his article also be moved to Randy Jackson (musician, born 19XX).

I would also be amenable to:
