Back in the early 80s I did a whole show based on the “Victory” tour, which was the most-hyped tour ever. I wrote it in April, we rehearsed it in the summer, and by the end of September everyone – the band, the fans, me – were sick of Jackson tunes.

Just believe me, OK? Do some Stevie Wonder instead, or something…
