The Jacksons serve as the archetype of musical families. The Jets and DeBarge family acts soon emerged, and even the Brady television clan attempted to follow the same formula. With little brother Michael grooving and blessing the mic, the group couldn’t lose. Obviously, Michael wasn’t the only talented one in the family. Jermaine, Rebbie, LaToya and Janet (Miss Jackson if you’re nasty) all launched solo careers. Michael passed away in 2009.
