On August 10, Andy Picheta, one of the producers of Michael forever Tribute, has released a book called How I Paid Tribute to Michael Jackson : The story of Michael Forever The Tribute Concert detailing what went behind the scenes of the tribute concert.
We approached Andy Picheta for a Q&A and he has agreed to it. Below you can find Andy's answers to our questions. Enjoy
MJJC Exclusive Q&A with Andy Picheta
MJJC: Why did you decide to write this book? Why now? What do you hope your book will accomplish?
Andy Picheta: The process of Michael Forever was a huge, funny, tragic and bizarre happening that needed telling. I hope my book serves as a lesson to entertainment entrepreneurs: to respect the talent, and the fans. I hope it reaches a wide audience, and makes a lot of people laugh a little. Why now? – couldn’t write it earlier, and would have forgotten a ton of stuff if I’d written it later
