Tito Jackson announced that he is teaming up with B.B. King's blues band. He made the announcement at the Withers Collection Museum and Gallery on Beale Street. They will be going on a major world tour together after spending time in Memphis to rehearse. Tito says he's a blues man at heart and has always idolized B.B. King. “I've always been a blues player, ever since the day I picked up the guitar, I guess,” says Tito Jackson. Also following in the footsteps of B.B. King, Tito says he plans to name his specially made Gibson guitar after someone close to him. His guitar will carry the name "Katie," which is what most people call his mother.

"I was really into baseball. I came up with the idea to have a guitar made with a baseball bat for the neck and a glove for the body. I still have this! Every once in a while I take it out and play a few chords, but it's awkward - it doesn't feel like a guitar. Probably because it isn't! "

THE FIRST OFFICIAL BOOK CREATED BY THE JACKSONS THEMSELVES, THIS DEFINITIVE PUBLICATION TELLS THE LEGENDARY GROUP’S STORY IN THEIR OWN WORDS
Created with unprecedented contributions from Jackie, Tito and Marlon, The Jacksons: Legacy is an uplifting, feel-good storybook that tells the story of the group in their own words. It features individual pieces from each of the brothers plus anecdotes and quotations from themselves and their close friends and family. Alongside the text is a mind-blowing collection of never-before-seen visual material carefully curated from tens of thousands of photographs obtained as a result of an unrivalled level of access to the private archives and collections of Jackie, Marlon and Tito Jackson and their mother Katherine Jackson. Images include intensely personal family pictures; ephemera shots of the first guitars the boys ever held; top photographer Harrison Funk’s exclusive coverage of their professional lives, including their stellar Victory tour; photos of Michael Jackson on tour with his brothers at the time of the release of Off The Wall (1979) and during 1982 when Thriller, the best-selling album of all time, was first released; editions of teen and black culture magazines featuring the family; and swathes of trademarked merchandise that are the ultimate evidence of the band’s mass-market appeal, right down to Jacksons-branded breakfast cereal boxes with giveaway 7” records attached.
Published by Thames & Hudson to coincide with the 50th anniversary of ‘Big Boy’, their debut single on small Chicago label Steeltown Records, and taking its visual lead from their own hit cartoon show, The Jacksons: Legacy creates that same magic feeling you get when you play one of their records. Jackie, Tito, Marlon, Jermaine and Michael Jackson were founding members of the first breakthrough black pop band, The Jackson 5, later to become The Jacksons when they moved to the Epic label and Randy replaced Jermaine. Their incredible joint and solo careers have spanned 50 years, netted them countless hits, and earned them their immortal reputation as frontmen of the Royal Family of Pop and deserving members of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Tito Jackson is becoming a very busy man. It was just a week or so ago that Tito’s country-flavored song “On My Way Home” was introduced, a track from his upcoming album, Tito Time. Well, this week Tito is back again with another new song, with a more contemporary feel. “One Way Street” is a tale of a bad romance, with a wall of ethereal voices helping give the right vibe behind Tito’s lead. Check out “One Way Street":
After having a career in music for over 50 years, the legend Tito Jackson started making his mark as a solo artist in 2016, placing solo music in the charts as the ninth and final Jackson family sibling with the smash hit single “Get It Baby” (featuring Big Daddy Kane). Continuing on that success, Tito is now dropping a song from his album Tito Time and takes a mild country turn on the song "On My Way Home." It’s a ballad that shows of Tito’s rarely heard lead vocals. It is quite a change from both his work with The Jacksons and even from “Get It Baby.”
