IT’S MY HOMETOWN, IT’S SPECTACULAR AND MICHAEL
JACKSON’S THERE, EVERYONE’S THERE. SO WE’RE BACKSTAGE, AND THEY
BUILT A TENT FOR VLADIMIR HAROWITZ WHO WAS AN AMAZING
CONCERT PIANIST, A GENIUS OF GENIUS, AND THEY BUILT A SPECIAL
ROOM AT HIS REQUEST AND PUT IN FINE PERIOD FURNITURE AND WINE,
TO MAKE HIM COMFORTABLE. MICHAEL CAME BACKSTAGE WITH THE
CHIMP — ( LAUGHTER )
LET’S JUST SAY THE CHIMP WASN’T WEARING HIS PULLUPS. ( LAUGHTER )
AND WENT THROUGH
MR. HARRO HAROWITZ’ FOOD AND OTHER THINGS.>>James: DID YOU SAY BUBBLE
