The double??? Rockwell???

Post by See on Wed Oct 21, 2009 12:12 pm

Again I was surfing the net LOL and came across this on MJDH forum...
It is about Rockwell ...
I think the fake Micheal Jackson is/was Kennedy William Gordy (aka Rockwell). Gordy, the son of MoTown mogul Berry Gordy achieved modest fame in the early 1980s with his only hit "Somebody’s Watching Me" which featured Jackson singing background vocals. Gordy and Jackson were childhood friends and Gordy’s fleeting taste of fame made him an ideal candidate to replace Jackson as "Michael."
Gordy simply disappeared from the spotlight and began his transformation under the watchful eye of Jackson.
It’s no secret that Rockwell doubled for Michael back in the 90’s…They had a similar sound, similar build. What’s amazing is that they kept it going all these years. Sure drugs helped, as evidenced by the large number of prescription pills they’ve been pulling out of his house, but still. I can’t help but wonder if this is tied into Jermaine’s marriage to Barry Gordy’s daughter.
http://www.michaeljacksonhoaxdeath.com/?page_id=293/hoax-death/the-fake-michael-iswas-rockwell/

A brief summary:

This Rockwell guy is a son of Berry Gordy, he had one major hit :Somebody is watching me (Michael doing the background vocals btw) in 1984.
Never to be heard from again from 1990's.
He seems to look alot like Michael, and has an album coming up in 2010..
Wich is weird cuz nobody can't seem to find a recent picture of him on the net...
The old one is this....







Credits go to Melzy777 from MJDH...she made the pic btw..

Tell me what you think....

You mean that he could have chage the color of his skin, left his hair grow and become MJ´s double?

The eyes in the LP are from Rockwell or MJ? ´Cause they are veryyyyy similar, aren´t they?
I don´t know what to think.

We have discussed this before, I don't think is really possible. Yes he could have surgery on his nose etc but the skin colour? MJ suffered for years with vitiligo and his change of skin was not sudden and happened over a long time. his skin pigmentation was gone and this is not a natural phenomenon. Without temporary thick cover make up IMO you cannot turn a black man white.

Yeah I wonder the same thing...What I mean is even if that is possible, how can you keep that a secret for so long...
And the album of Rochwell coming out in 2010 makes me wonder even more...

The eyes are different if you were looking for the differences, but at quick glance, almost the same shape.

I agree with FA though because he would have had to change his skin color too. Intriging

I cannot find anything online about Rockwell besides the small WIKI page for him that doesnt even have an old picture. It's like he ceased to exist after that one hit.

Well lets see. Paternal would mean his dad's side of the family - Which is Mr. Gordy himself. Hmmmmm .... Right so Rhonda would be the child that Barry G. and Diana Ross had together which means they have the same father but different mothers yes.

One of Gordy's sons, Kennedy William Gordy, was a one-hit-wonder under the stage name Rockwell in 1984 with Somebody's Watching Me. The song featured Michael and Jermaine Jackson in the chorus. A young Rockwell introduced The Jackson 5 on the TV special Diana! in 1971. The song is used in a Geico commercial.

This is what I found...and yeah exactly!!! He was just gone after the 1990's and now suddenly he is coming with a new album in 2010????

hmmm... more food for thought.

A couple of weeks ago during my reading, I came across something mentioning Rockwell and MJ doing the background vocals. Fleetingly I remember thinking if there was any further connection(s) between the 2.

Rockwell (born Kennedy William Gordy on March 15, 1964 in Detroit, Michigan) is a former R&B performer who was signed to the Motown label.
Rockwell is the son of Motown founder and CEO Berry Gordy and Margaret Norton. To avoid charges of nepotism, Rockwell secured his record deal without his father's knowledge.[1] Motown came up with the name Rockwell. Rockwell changed his name because he believed he "rocked well."
In 1984, Rockwell released his biggest hit single, "Somebody's Watching Me", featuring childhood friends Michael Jackson on guest vocals (notably in the chorus lyrics), and Jermaine Jackson singing back-up.
"Somebody's Watching Me" became a Top 10 pop hit in both the US and UK, and a #1 R&B hit. Follow-up singles underperformed, however, with single "Obscene Phone Caller", being Rockwell's only other Top 40 single. This follow-up single reached #35 on the Billboard Hot 100. Rockwell soon ended his musical career with Motown.
Rockwell appeared on Soul Train on February 2, 1985 (Season 14, Episode 17)
Rockwell was not the first member of the Gordy family to hit Billboard's Hot 100 as a recording artist. His uncle, Robert Gordy, reached the longer reaches of the chart in 1958 with "Everyone Was There," recording under the name of Bob Kayli. (*Link to YouTube)
Rockwell's paternal half-sister is actress Rhonda Ross Kendrick, the eldest child of Diana Ross.
A cover version by Mysto & Pizzi of Rockwell's hit "Somebody's Watching Me" is currently being used in a series of commercials for the auto insurance company GEICO.

"The O2 have filled one of MJs dates with Rockwell! It made me wonder if he'd done any other songs besides Somebody's Watching Me... thanks to this thread I've found out he has, but still not enough to fill the O2!

It turns out Rockwell is a "charity" gig with a number of bands doing 2 songs each or some such..."


is this true???? Cuz then I would be like

I find this theory fascinating because Barry has always looked at Michael as his son and it wouldn’t really surprise me if he went to this extreme to help him. Sacrificing his own son to protect the chosen one. It’s so surreal that it makes perfect sense. Hmmmm have to look into this.
Good job!
