"Yet another one of the Motown family is gone and it's just - it's just breathtaking, to know that these people that you've (known), since he was nine or 10, to grow and do all the things that he has done in his lifetime and become America's, or the greatest artist in the world, it's just mind-boggling. And so many memories, it's hard to think. […] It was a Smokey song called "Who's Loving You." And he did that early, and I said that would not be one of his first three or four songs because it was just - it was like 50 years of knowing about love. […] He was putting so much passion in that, man, and I looked at his - where'd he get that emotion from, what was that? (As in) "He's been here before." We'd just walk around, "He's been here before."

"He dreamed of working. He would practice when other people were playing and when we were doing a rehearsal or something and the rehearsal would finish and the other guys might have the guitars and they'd be playing back and forth - never. He was always staring, what is - every time I know, if I was working with them, which I did in many cases, I could always look at Michael and he was staring. He was focusing. No playing, nothing. […]”

"He was a different kind of genius. Michael was a thinker. He did more research than any of the artists that I've mentioned. He was a researcher. He researched me, he researched all of the great people came before him. […] So at nine, he was researching and looking and studying, so he was different - a researcher. […] He wanted to do something, he knew how to talk to me about it in a very shy, nice way, and respectful and everything else, and when he'd get on the stage he'd become this impresario and really, his whole attitude would change.”

Berry Gordy, founder of the Motown record label
