From the Frank DiLeo Michael Jackson Collection, this is famed record executive Frank DiLeo's personally owned Epic Records Special Epic Portrait Associates 1983 gold and platinum awards display that was presented to DiLeo and features Michael's record-setting hit album "Thriller." DiLeo, whose prolific career in the record business touched numerous artists, was best known for his work with Michael Jackson. The magic started when "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. Measures 25 x 1.5 x 25. Very good condition with some wear. Comes with a Gotta Have Rock & Roll™ Certificate of Authenticity and a letter of provenance from the DiLeo family.
