Michael Jackson took advice from Simon Webbe for songs

Los Angeles: Singer Simon Webbe from the boy band Blue, says that the late King of Pop Michael Jackson asked him for advice on knowing when to finish writing a song.

Webbe feels it was “weird” for such an iconic performer to seek help from him, reports hellomagazine.com.

“Michael asked, ‘When do you know when a song’s finished?’ Weird him asking my advice, but it was very special,” Webbe said.

The group found working on “Sorry seems to be the hardest word” with John a dream come true and will always value the advice he gave them.

Lee Ryan said: “As a kid I used to pray I’d sing with Elton John. It was a big ask, but it happened.”

Band member Duncan James added: “He advised us to forget the fancy dance moves. He said we were in a different class to the other boybands and gave us all a gold pendant with our initials.”
