AVIARY is often described as grandiose, pompous and bombastic. The truth is that, because the music of Aviary is a mix of ELO, Queen and Sparks, they were a powerpop band before this kind of music was known as powerpop. The unique songwriting talent of Brad Love and the musical skills he and his four fellow band members bring to this album, make it still, thirty years later, a very special piece of music.

Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009 at his Los Angeles home. He was 50 years old. Wich Michael are we going to remember? The King of Pop or Wacko Jacko. I'll go for The King Of Pop.

The Sultan of Brunei was the world's richest man in the 80's and 90's, with a net wealth estimated at $38 billion in 1997 according to Forbes. When the Sultan turned 50, he threw himself a $17 million bash that featured three concerts by Michael Jackson. Guinness called it the most lavish birthday party ever held. Michael sung (or lip-synched) all his tophits and interacted with his audience.
