“He was there, right in front of me! It was Michael Jackson, this immense star that I so hoped to see…” Key date, magical moment for Franck Legac. February 24, 1996. In a store at the Eurodisney park in Marne-la-Vallée. He can finally approach his idol. The King of Pop. The one whose death anniversary we celebrate today, June 25, 2009 and to whom this adopted Niçois dedicates a book My Michael Jackson yearspublished independently and sold online, 18 euros.

Another work on the mythical character, who ignited the chronicle as much as he did it?

For the “generations who did not know this artist”

Fanck Legac, a 55-year-old Parisian, based in Nice since 2005, metropolitan agent, puts forward his argument: “The book doesn’t tell anything about his life. It’s a testimony, a personal experience of the concerts and I saw 19 of them, and above all, an account of my meetings with Michael. I wanted to leave a trace of these incredible moments to generations, who did not know this extraordinary artist nor those years.”

Nearly 200 pages vibrating with sincere enthusiasm, with moving enthusiasm. Feelings of an admirer “no limits”who, like millions of admirers, had a shock when the album was released Thrillerin 1983. Starting point for numerous trips, most of the time alone, to experience tours, previews and mega shows in France and Europe. “Mainly in the pit to get as close as possible to Michael. I loved his voice, his compositions, his way of dancing. He was a complete artist.”

Complete. Complex. Complex perhaps. An unfathomable being, whose path Franck crossed three times. The first time, therefore, in the world of Mickey, in the Paris region. “I was able to exchange a few words with him, take selfies, express my admiration. He was masked. A very humble person. Obviously happy to receive me with a few other privileged people.”

Wave

In September of the same year, it was in an orphanage in Bucharest, Romania, before a concert, that a 2e meeting occurs. “There, I entered his van, alone with him, thanks to the friendly kindness of one of his bodyguards, who knew some of his loyal fans. But to be able to approach Michael, you needed someone very calm. It was raining… Sitting at the back of the vehicle, Michael waved for me to come join him. It was short: a minute and a half. I told him thank you for everything. It was very impressive.”

Finally, third interview, in 1999, “to the Samaritaine of Paris. A few words. An autograph. He loved France very much…” Even today, Franck Legac has forgotten nothing of these crazy years, with which he remains imbued for life. Michael Jackson Forever.

A book in the form of a story that delivers sincere feelings. (Photo Ch.R.) Nice morning.
