"What did you learn from opening for Michael Jackson?"
Taylor: That was the first tour I was ever on. It was in coliseums and I remember the roar of the crowd. I went from performing before 600 people in clubs to 60,000 in stadiums.
I just watched one of the most extraordinary entertainers, the way Michael Jackson manipulated the crowd's excitement level.
And he always had some armed guard doing drills with him backstage so he would get amped before he even hit the stage.
