OK, moving on to lighter news--perhaps not coincidentally related to the aforementioned Michael Jackson. It's already been a pretty monumental year for band reunions so far (the Police, the Sex Pistols, Crowded House, Rage Against The Machine, Van Halen, the Verve, the Jesus & Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, the Spice Girls, Led Zeppelin, etc.), and now Michael's brother Jermaine is confirming longstanding rumors that the Jackson 5 will soon launch their own comeback tour. And yes, Jermaine claims the most infamous, reclusive, Elephant-Man-bone-collecting, oxygen-tent-sleeping, single-glove-wearing Jackson sibling will take part in this reunion. "We feel we have to do it one more time. We owe that to the fans and to the public," Jermaine told Britain's BBC, adding, "[Michael] has to [participate], he is a Jackson. He was at the meetings. Michael will be involved." Granted, Jacko doesn't bear much of a family resemblance to his notably darker-complexioned, broader-nosed brothers anymore...but this reunion would be a true nostalgia-fest nonetheless. Therefore we really hope it happens. C'mon, Jacksons--we want you back!

The Jackson 5 reuniting???
OK, I rarely cover music news on this blog, but this is some big news. Well especially since even Michael Jackson may even come out and be a part of the big reunion despite his past troubles. I'm not old enough to have ever recalled the Jackson 5 but this'll be interesting. From Yahoo!Music...
