Michael Jackson with the Jackson 5

A young Michael Jackson (center) sings on stage with his band of brothers, the Jackson 5, in London circa 1974. Michael Jackson was born in 1958, so he would have turned 16 in 1974. (He wasn't *that* short -- there's a little visual foreshortening going on in this photo.) The Jackson 5 was a hit act in the early 1970s. Michael also released his own solo albums, and in the 1980s became one of the biggest stars in the music business.
