He said: "He's very very frail, he doesn't have long. The family needs to be by his bedside - that's our only intention in his final days". "My wife and I would fight, because I invested in new instruments that cost so much", Jackson told Rolling Stone in 1971. "Let her rest. Leave her alone, she's exhausted, ' that makes you insane", La Toya wrote. His father - Samuel Jackson - was a university professor and, according to Joe, a very strict and domineering man.
