Mick Jagger and Michael Jackson, 1984
Speaking of his artistry, Jackson even had orders for Mick Jagger while recording “State of Shock” in 1984.
“He had Mick doing scales for over an hour to warm-up before he would even start,” said Swedien.
So was the “Rolling Stones” bad boy too happy about it?
“Let’s just say he did it,” Swedien responded. “By then, everyone knew how good Michael was,” he continued. “If Michael Jackson says warm up, you warm up – even if you are Mick Jagger.”
