From the Frank DiLeo Michael Jackson Collection, this is Michael Jackson manager and famed record executive Frank DiLeo's personally owned official Michael Jackson "OPUS" book. With the white glove, unopened, mint condition. The official Michael Jackson OPUS, published in December 2009, was the only new publication approved and endorsed by the Estate of Michael Joseph Jackson. With over 400 pages of stunning and never-before-seen photographs plus personal, heartfelt essays written exclusively for this OPUS by those who knew Michael best and respected him most. A truly one-of-a-kind tribute book of an extraordinary person and performer. Owned by Frank DiLeo, whose prolific career in the record business touched numerous artists, but was best known for his work with Michael Jackson. The magic began when Jackson's "Thriller" was released by Epic Records in 1982 when Frank DiLeo was Vice President of National Promotion. After the huge success of "Thriller," Michael was so happy with Frank's innovative work in promoting the album, he asked DiLeo to become his manager and he managed Michael 1984 to 1989, and partnered with Jackson again in 2009 for the “This Is It” concert series. DiLeo was the co-executive producer, along with Michael, for Michael's full-length movie “Moonwalker,” executive produced three of Michael's Pepsi-Cola commercials (including negotiating a landmark endorsement deal with Pepsi), and eight Michael Jackson music videos including the Michael’s Grammy winning video "Leave Me Alone". DiLeo oversaw Jackson's “Bad World Tour,” and the Jackson family's “Victory Tour.” DiLeo later partnered up with Jackson again in 2009 in preparation for Michael's sold-out "This Is It" concert tour that sadly never took place due to the singer's tragic death eighteen days prior to the start. Comes the original box it was shipped to Frank DiLeo in. The book is in mint condition, unopened. 404 pages, measuring 22.9 x 5.3 x 16.8 and weighing approximately 30 pounds. Come with a Gotta Have Rock & Roll™ Certificate of Authenticity and a letter of provenance from the DiLeo family.
