Melbourne, Feb 24: Michael Jackson's elder brother Jermaine has said that even when they were touring the world as The Jackson 5 with his siblings, they still found time to be kids.
He said that when he thinks of Michael then, what he remembers most is all the clowning around and practical jokes.
Touring Australia in 1973 was such an adventure, he said.
"We went all over the place and when we weren't performing, we were doing things like going into the outback, where we spent time with Aboriginal people and learnt how to throw a boomerang," News.com.au quoted him as saying.
He said that he is excited to be coming back to Australia, but he's looking forward to returning with his brothers.
In his book, 'You Are Not Alone: Michael, Through a Brother's Eyes', he sets the record straight.
He said that there has been so many books written about the pop legend which weren't accurate or the truth, so he wanted to tell his side of the story, which is the real story because he lived through it.
Touring again as The Jacksons has been healing for them. The first time Tito, Marlon, Jackie and Jermaine performed together without Michael was hard because they felt his presence so much and missed him, he said.
"We're still mourning his passing, but we felt it would be good to go out and play the music and make people happy, and at the same time, it's making us happy as well. He'd want us to do this," he added. (ANI)
