I live in Sydney,and the year after MJ was here,I was talking to a gentleman who ran a security grim in Sydney. We were just talking and he did not know I was an MJ fan. He was telling me about some of the stars his firm was contracted to protect whilst in Sydney,and MJ was one of them.
I just said 'wow what was that like'?-considering the heightened hysteria surrounding him at the time,considering that (if my memory serves me correctly),DRs pregnancy had just been announced a few days nefore he arrived in AU. He said ''yes it was crazy,especially since he still had his ex-wife with him!
I am pretty sure I still have the details of our conversation and his company somewhere at my parents house-will have to look for it next time I visit.
Also,I remember listening to one of the leading radio stations in Sydeney (2DayFM) the night of his first concert (November 14) and it was reported that MJ had sent flowers to another hotel in Sydney. They didn't have any details on which hotel,or who he was sending it to. though I remember thinking at the time 'I wonder if that was where DR was staying.'
