Jermaine Jackson confirmed rumors of a Jackson 5 reunion in Sydney yesterday. Speaking to the Australian Associated Press at the launch of Foxtel's "greatest hits" channel, he explained, "It is just the timing, so what we've been doing is working on the music and all the logistics. It is going to be more like a family affair, Janet's going to open and, of course, the original Jackson 5... Michael, Randy and the whole family ... We're in the studio, we're planning on being out there next year."
When asked about why Michael missed the group's lifetime achievement award acceptance at the BMI awards in September, Jermaine said, "I don't know. I think he was in Egypt riding a camel or something."
Zing! The last Jackson 5 LP, 1989's 2300 Jackson Street, had very little input from Michael or Marlon.
