MICHAEL JACKSON: First Appearance on People Magazine This Week in 1983

This week back in 1983, Michael Jackson made his first appearance on the cover of People magazine.   It was the height of Thrillermania when the youthful 25 year-old was pictured in a red jacket with rolled up sleeves.

Ironically, October was the only month during 1983 when Michael didn't have a Top 10 hit record -- either solo or as a duet with Paul McCartney.
