Standup comic, writer and self-described ‘hateful rat’ Becky Lucas on her childhood infatuation with the music of Michael Jackson, and arguably MJ’s last classic album, 1987′s ‘Bad’.
We talk about how Jackson still managed to connect to people through music when isolated from the everyday world, I tell a bizarre MJ studio story (courtesy of bass legend Guy Pratt), the death of mass culture in the modern world, why Becky bailed on a MJ gig mid-way through and our memories of the day MJ died.
