Michael Jackson's guitarist holding music workshop in Nottingham
Jennifer Batten went on three tours with the King of Pop, who she describes as a "creative tornado", playing to around four and a half million people along the way.
She is now holding a seminar in the east Midlands city today (February 20th 2010) which will include tips on techniques for a new generation of guitar players.
Batten told the Nottingham Evening Post that she took up the instrument after seeing her sister playing it.
"I told my parents that was what I wanted for my next birthday and my dad got me an electric guitar and some lessons," she explained. "I really took to it."
She beat more than 100 people for a role in Jackson's backing band in 1988, making her debut on the Bad world tour.
Michael Jackson's hits from down the years including Beat It, Thriller and Billie Jean.Posted on 20 Feb 2010 11:00 to category : Instruments News
