Great deals on musical instruments

The Jackson brothers cannot escape their brother's legacy.

The siblings - Marlon, Tito, Jackie and Jermaine - have admitted wherever they go, they can see and feel their brother Michael.

Tito, 56, said: "No matter what we're doing - working in the studio or rehearsing dance steps - there's an emptiness there. You feel it constantly. It's bearing down on you.

"Emotionally it's very difficult to sing these songs without Michael. Just to hear him on the radio today is very emotional."

Jackie also claimed he can feel the 'Thriller' singer around him.

He said: "Michael is with us 24/7. Every time you turn around there he is on TV. He's always with us."

Jackie added he didn't believe that Michael was gone when he was first told.

He said: "Someone told me my brother was dead. It was very hard for me to believe.

"So I called my mother and she was screaming and hollering and crying."

Marlon, 52, admitted the death was difficult to deal with.

He said in an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Michael was a major part of the Jackson Five and of course he was a brother long before we became famous. I don't think people will ever understand the loss of Michael as a brother verses a pop star. Losing a sibling is devastating."
