They were massive in the UK mid 80s, i think they flooded the market and burnt out quite quickly, but they were fun. Denise was hot as hell. Probably still is, wherever she is now. smile
Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

Do you remember their comic strip in Look In magazine?? lol

Wow really? i had no idea.

i was 15 in 1985 so no longer was buying 'Look In' and then only bought it occasionally. but damn, that brought back memories, i remember an Adam Ant one and an MJ one in years before. lol

I was 10, going on 11, but still completely childish so I was definitely still buying it. lol

One day, I am going back to my Mum's place and ransacking it... I am sure I can find some old Look Ins there. lol

What adventures did MJ get up to in his comic strip?? lol

It seemed everybody had a cartoon in Look In - at one point, there was even one for 'That's My Boy'. spit falloff I've GOT to find them. lol

The best bit was the back page with the questionnaire: 'Star sign?', 'Colour Of Eyes', 'Favourite Food?'. giggle

And I lost The Jets' 'Crush On You' free flexi-disc years ago... cry

Oh it was his life story, the art was quite good as i recall. i remember a panel of him and his brothers recording the 'Victory' album, it was cheesey as hell (all wearing shades in the studio), also remember when he fell ill on the beach in the mid-seventies and couldn't breathe, i remember being alarmed at that, turned out it was true as well. so it was quite well researched for a 'kids' magazine.

5 Star was one of my favorites in the 80's, and I always thought Doris was just gorgeous

I would definitely say Denise and Delroy have aged the best. They both look great.
I am convinced Beyonce's career would not be where it is, if she had dark skin.

I think they had some great singles, their compilation cd is good to hear but their sound never really developed. I like them I am not crazy about them though. As for the J5 connection yes the voice sounds similar and I haven't heard too many J5 stuff to compare but judging by the ones I heard there is no comparison J5 were miles better.

Co-sign. cool Even today, it's hard to believe that Fivestar are NOT blood-related to The Jackson Family. Both families could have been second cousins at least!
