IMAGES: Michael Jackson's Thriller jasje gaat de wereld rond
Het jasje die Michael Jackson droeg tijdens zijn Thriller muziek video gaat op tournee. De nieuwe eigenaar van het jasje, Mitlon Verret, zei dinsdag dat hij plannen had het jasje mee te nemen over de hele wereld om geld in te zamelen voor goede doelen die zieke kinderen helpen.
“Several months ago, I knew the jacket was going to be up for sale, and I was going to buy it,” zei Verret . “Then, four weeks before the jacket sold, I took a tour of Dell Children’s Hospital, because we were getting involved with the CowParade (an upcoming Austin event) to raise some money for them. After that I kind of made it my mission to get the jacket. I knew that this is the most important piece of rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia history. Ever. There’s nothing that can touch it. With that much awareness, you can raise millions of dollars.“
