Michael Jackson biographer Joseph Vogel

King Jordan talks to Joseph Vogel, Michael Jackson historian and biographer. Vogel is the author of 2011’s acclaimed Jackson biography Man in the Music: The Creative Life and Work of Michael Jackson. Vogel also appeared in Spike Lee’s Jackson documentary Bad 25.

Vogel talks about his work in the documentary, saying that he first came in contact with Lee when Lee invited him to guest-lecture his graduate-level film studies class. Lee then later asked Vogel for help with researching for the film and to be interviewed on camera for it.  Vogel was ten years old when Jackson’s album Dangerous came out, which he says made him a fan.
