Joe Jackson passed away on July 27, 2018, after a long battle with cancer. The 89-year-old was most famous for introducing his musical family to the world and managing the career of The Jackson Five.
Although his relationship with his children was questionable and relations fractured for many years, things seemed to get better as the children started out on their own lives. Despite not being much of a musician himself, his contributions to the industry earned him several accolades, including acknowledgment by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
