Michael Jackson probably wasn't the world's most socially savvy person. For example, after making some songs with Paul McCartney, he took McCartney's advice to buy rights to some songs. Except Jackson went after the Beatles back list. Probably not what McCartney had in mind. Needless to say, they weren't exactly friends after that.
But apparently Michael has put things back to normal. Rumors are that he's willed the back catalog of Beatles' hits back to McCartney.
Well done. If a little late to actually make amends.
No word on how Ringo feels.
