Ndugu Chancler, legendary session drummer who played on Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean,” has died at the age of 65, according to multiple news sources.
His wife, Brenda, confirmed his death to Rolling Stone. A cause of death was not released at this time.
Chancler was on the drums for three tracks from Michael Jackson’s hit album “Thriller.” In addition to “Billie Jean,” he played on “P.Y.T.” and “Baby Be Mine.”
He was an in-demand studio drummer who played with many greats including Miles Davis, Lionel Ritchie, Santana, and Eric Clapton.
Chancler also co-wrote the Dazz Band’s 1982 hit dance funk song “Let It Whip.”
He was born Leon Chancler in Shreveport, Louisiana in 1952.
While staying active as a musician, he also became an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Jazz Studies at the University of Southern California and taught at the Stanford Jazz Workshop.
May he R.I.P.
Anybody heard about the FBI files? Jackson has been followed for 15 years, his computers, books, everything was searched, his phones were taped, etc, and the FBI stated officially they NEVER found anything wrong with him. When will people wake up?
Read Aphrodite Jones's book, all about the trial, everything is there!!! Jackson was victim of crazy extorsionists, Janet Arvizo even did the same trick before (false accusations of sex harrassment and rape), it is totally CLEAR. After reading the book, you just won't believe how ignorant we are, to believe anything sensationnal in the press.
Wake up people, a juicy "story" about Jackson back at the times could give you 60 000$, what do you think happened!!! Fired ex-employees, employees who stole on his property, money-hungry losers, etc. could say any sh*t and get paid for their lies! Another thing we have learned during the trial! People should get INFORMED.
One of the many aspects of Rock and Roll... It is a continuous story.
This may be on of the greatest pop songs of all time but lets give credit where credit is due. I Can't Go For That (No Can Do) by Hall and Oats inspired this song.
Nobody will ever sell as many records as he has - and will continue to sell for ever.
Elvis still sells records afterall,
I can't believe he's dead, I grew up with his music, danced to it at school discos, done the thriller video dance with mates at parties for a laugh.
So, he may have been a little weird, rumoured to be into young boys etc
But his music brought and still BRINGS joy to people all over the world.
I only hope he is remembered for his achievements rather than any discrepancies :(
2) MTV definitely had a policy of not playing black music videos. Whether this policy was based on racism or a demographic based business model we will never know. This policy is the reason that Black Entertainment Televisions' (BET) video music slots were so successful. Other video channels as well as music video slots like Friday Night Videos played black music videos.
Billie Jean is one of the best songs ever created. Perfection.
Thus, the moonwalk was born! : )
I never get tired of listenin to it.
