Big Al Scanlon from Neverland is accepting MJ story requests for a new book!

Post by Admin on Wed Jul 24, 2013 1:24 pm

Big Al is considering writing a long awaited book about the wonderful experiences he had while working with Michael Jackson for 15 years at Neverland Valley Ranch! He is taking requests for stories and is willing to answer MJ fan~mily questions regarding anything and everything about his tenure at NVR.

Please ask your questions or make requests for whatever you are most interested in knowing about in this thread. Many topics may be considered for Big Al’s book!

I want to thank Big Al for being so gracious with offering his time and for sharing his wisdom about his first account stories with Michael Jackson. This is so exciting and I know I speak for all of us in saying we all just love this opportunity to be involved with such a fabulous project!

We L.O.V.E. you Big Al!!

My request: Please reserve this thread for questions and requests for Big Al. He can then decide what might be interesting to use while putting together a book. There is a Big Al Neverland convo thread in the "Neverland Forevermore" Forum. We would like to keep this thread specifically for requests/questions for him to ponder over and answer as he chooses. Thank you.

I would like to know about what a normal routine day at NVR was like for Michael and his children. Just something about how they started their days and what they liked to do together when MJ was not actively busy working on his music or prepping for engagements and events.

I sent 2 gift packages for Michael at Neverland and have the 2 proof of delivery cards that were signed by a member of staff. I have never been able to make out the two signatures. I wonder Al if you knew who received and signed for the gifts that were addressed for Michael? Hopefully they were still the same members of staff when you were employed there? The gifts I sent were in 1992 and 1993.

Something I would love to know Al: What was your job description at NVR? What were your daily responsibilities? I know you are highly educated and have previous experience in management correct? It would be so interesting to know a bit more about your function at the ranch Smile

Sorry ... it took me awhile to realize I had my very own thread.

So ... just to let everybody know ... I may not be able to answer ALL questions. It may I feel it might be just too personal or it would not appropriate for me to answer or it might be I just flat do not know the answer.

I will however attempt to entertain you all to the best of my ability ...

Thanks a million for the awesome welcome to this website.

Hi Big Al! The purpose of this thread is not really for you to answer here. It is requests and ideas (so to speak) which might give you inspiration about compiling a book for all of us to enjoy. The thread you have started in the Neverland Forum is more for conversation and light hearted banter. I wanted to provide all a place to enter posts with what they "always wondered about" etc...

I totally understand that many of the requests may be too personal - I certainly do not mean to infringe on that. These are only ideas OK? Thanks for everything you do tell us about. We literally love all we can learn!

The only thing I can comment on here is the time they spent in the Amusement Park together. This only consisted of them riding the rides and in my opinion, they had very deep feelings for each other. I have heard some people say they came away with a less than positive impression of Lisa Marie after watching her on a TV interview ... I can honestly tell you that Lisa Marie was a very nice person to be around.

It was not ... we live at Neverland we can do what ever we want. I believe the first part of the day was taken up with study time and family time. The Amusement Park and Theater were a treat for later as long as the important things were completed.

I would like to know about any interactions and conversations you had with Michael during your time at Neverland. Also interactions of Michael and any others there that you can recall. Any information that you can provide on the chandler/arviso kids disputing their claims would also be appreciated.

Greetings to all ... I am finally off the road and at home for the next 2 months. This year has been hard ... or I should say ... all the things I used to do (work) are MUCH harder to do than in years past ... getting old.

Anyway ... now that I am not traveling and working 7 days a week, I hope to get on this site every day.

I did see the Jacksons in concert back in September in Pomona ... and I had 2 huge exciting moments that I had no idea were going to be part of my night. Michael's mom showed up to watch the show ( she got a standing ovation as well she should ) and ... I got to meet Tommy Organ. I am friends with the people / production company that books the entertainment for the venue I was at ... I was actually backstage way before the show talking to the production staff ... they informed me that they thought the brothers were already on site ... just then I saw Tommy .. . walked up and introduced myself and explained my connection ( Neverland ) ... within a few minutes we were talking about MJ and we instantly knew that we each knew ... what MJ was all about and what an awesome person he was. I think we became good friends in just a few minutes. I gota tell you Tommy is a great guy and I am glad I got to spend a few minutes talking about MJ with him.
