In the early 80’s, Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson were best of friends. Michael often sought Paul’s advice, which Paul readily gave. That McCartney, he’s such a nice boy…
Then: On Aug. 14, 1985, Michael, acting on the advice of Paul, invested his “Thriller” money in music publishing. Michael Jackson secretly made a winning bid of $47.5 million for the rights to over 250 Lennon-McCartney Beatles songs owned by ATV publishing. Paul was also bidding.
