“Michael Jackson manages to do more in a week than most manage in a decade. In the time it took Supertramp to get the right piano sound, Michael sang harmonies with Donna Summer, backing vocals with Joe King Carrasco (happened to be in the next studio at the time and was happy to oblige, once he translated it from Texan), wrote and produced Muscles for Diana Ross, wrote and sang The Girl Is Mine with Paul McCartney, and did a song for a narrated E.T. album, gathered together everyone from Vincent Price to Eddie Van Halen (“Eddie was a great choice, because he’s brilliant”) to help out with his solo album, and still had time for his pet llama, snake and parrots.” – Sylvie Simmons, CREEM Magazine, 1983.
