    Tito Jackson is moving to Wolverhampton - and thinks Michael Jackson would've done the same

    The 63-year-old singer is swapping the sunny climes of Los Angeles for the West Midlands city because he enjoys how "quiet" the UK is, and he wouldn't have been surprised if his late younger brother Michael - who passed away in 2009 aged 50 - had done the same had he still been alive today.


    He said: "I am moving here very shortly, I am going to live in Wolverhampton. I think Michael might have moved over here and my sister Janet lives in London - it's quiet."

    Tito is grateful to the British public for how they have "always" supported The Jacksons, made up of his brothers Jermaine, Jackie and Marlon Jackson.

    Speaking at the BMI London Awards, he added to the Daily Star newspaper: "The Brits have always had our back."

    Tito will not be the only famous musician to be in and the around the Wolverhampton area when he moves to the city.

    Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant is a lifelong fan of the local football team, Wolverhampton Wanderers, and the singer - who is now a vice-president of the club - once admitted following the side nearly cost him his marriage to Maureen Wilson, who he has since divorced, in the 70s.

    He said: "It played havoc with my marriage for a while. When we won the League Cup in 1974, it took me three days to get home from Wembley to Worcestershire.

    "I haven't got a clue where I was. I know the Mayor of Wolverhampton received the team in official form, and I remember being there for a minute or two."

    What's more, British soul singer Beverley Knight, known for the likes of hit single 'Shoulda Woulda Coulda', was born in Wolverhampton in March 1973.
