From the Frank DiLeo Michael Jackson Collection. DiLeo, this is Michael Jackson manager and famed record executive Frank DiLeo's personally owned Michael Jackson over-sized "Thriller" original Epic Records U.K. multi-platinum record album award presented to him. DiLeo, whose prolific career in the record business touched numerous artists, was best known for his work with Michael Jackson. The magic began when Michael Jackson's "Thriller" album 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 worked 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 40.25 x 44.25. Very good condition with some light wear. Comes with a Gotta Have Rock & Roll™ Certificate of Authenticity and a letter of provenance from the DiLeo family.
