Bruce Swedienabout the songDon’t Be Messin’ Around
“Once he went on his knees and started playing piano in the barn. He played a few notes then began singing. It was a love song and sounded really good and he had actually written it right there in front of me. It was amazing to watch, it took him about 6 minutes. When he got up I said did you just write that? He said ´yeah, but I have forgotten it already´. Then he started looking for something else to do.

Question: Did MJ play instruments?
Taj Jackson: This has been a mystery to a lot of people. He would sing a song, the parts to his songs to the musicians. He wasn´t very good at playing the songs, playing the instruments.

But he didn´t need to because it was all in his head and he would sing it and they (musicians) would get it right away and they would create it.
