Paul Morley

Paul Morley

Michael Jackson died on June 25 2009 from of acute propofol intoxication. He had lived many lives and inhabited many bodies – PT Barnum, Fred Astaire, and Peter Pan in one mortal coil.  Music journalist Paul Morley’s short biographical portrait looks at how we turned the most outrageous talent of the late 20th century into a monster; how his decline soundtracked the end of pop and the end of American Imperialism; how his once staggeringly funky music became secondary to the dysfunctional freak show of watching a vulnerable man literally disintegrate.  Chaired by Nicola Meighan.
