Biography

Early life and rise to stardom

Growing up in a large family, young Tito Jackson originally hid his musical talent from his father Joseph. While his father was at work, Jackson would play his father's guitar while his siblings danced and sang.[1] It was not until the young Jackson broke a string on the guitar that father Joseph learned about his musical aspirations. Joseph was then inspired to form his three sons into a band; eventually, younger brothers Marlon and Michael joined the group, which became the legendary Jackson 5. Joseph Walter Jackson (a. ...

Jacksons Years

Not long after brother Jermaine Jackson married Motown founder Berry Gordy's daughter, the other members of the group were weary of their lack of involvement and creative control over their own records. They left Motown and ended up on CBS' Epic label. The Jacksons contributed two songs to their first album as writers. "Blues Away," was the very first Michael Jackson composition to appear commercially, while Tito collaborated with Michael to write a song entitled, "The Style Of Life." Liner notes don't list musicians on the self-titled album, but on subsequent Jacksons releases, Tito did play guitar, along with session musicians. The Jacksons' third album Destiny was a million-seller and with almost all of the material written by the brothers, garnered more critical praise. However, the following year, Michael Jackson's solo effort, Off The Wall was released, selling five-million copies in the United States alone.

The Jacksons followed up with an album entitled Triumph which sold two-million copies, but Michael's Thriller became the biggest selling album of all. In 1984, the group released an album called Victory (reuniting the group with Jermaine) and followed it up with a tour. Tito sang lead on a song known as, "We Can Change The World," and played many of the instruments, but his other contributions to the album were limited to backing vocals. The subsequent tour would be one of the Jacksons' greatest successes, but almost immediately after it ended, lead singer Michael Jackson resigned from the group. Marlon Jackson also quit following the Victory Tour. Triumph is a British car brand (see Triumph Motor Company), as well as a motorcycle brand (see Triumph Motorcycles). ...

The Jacksons' final release, "2300 Jackson Street" was a more "New Jack Swing"-oriented album, who's title song reunited all of the members of the Jackson family, except LaToya.

However, he did contribute vocals, including a narration that precedes the first song. 2300 Jackson Street was the final album released by American band The Jacksons. ...
