Quote from Jerry Greenberg
Show-biz reporter Mitchell Fink recently interviewed MJJ Music's President Jerry Greenberg about Michael Jackson's new album. Quotes from this interview were published today in the American newspaper Daily News. Jerry Greenberg is quoted as saying: "The sound on this record is definitely fresher and more contemporary. Michael is a melody man. That's what he does best. If he's surrounded by the right people, and we think these people are, he can have #1 records tomorrow. If the music is good and the public can somehow accept Michael as cool again, it will happen. It's still the music that drives everything."
