■ Statement From MJFC
(15-8-2011) The Michael Jackson Fan Club would like to make the following statement regarding the rock group KISS performing at the Michael Forever tribute concert taking place in Wales in October.

We are more than a little upset that KISS has been invited to perform in a concert paying tribute to a man who its lead singer, Gene Simmons very recently referred to as a pedophile. In an interview just last year, Mr. Simmons had this to say about Michael Jackson:

"There is no question in my mind he molested those kids. Not a doubt. The only sexual references ever made about Michael Jackson that were made by anyone, anywhere around the world, have always been made by kids, and specifically males usually 10 to 14 years of age; never females, that age or older, and never grown men."

And now he has been invited to perform at the tribute concert honoring Michael Jackson. We are, quite frankly, saddened by this news and it only serves to reinforce our initial position that this concert is happening at a very inappropriate time since it will be taking place during the Involuntary Manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray. We still stand by this opinion, and today's announcement has left us scratching our heads.
