JOHN DOTE' & MICHAEL JACKSON

Expert: Michael Jackson went 60 days without real sleep/ CNN & CBS News

Michael Jackson died while preparing to set a world record for the most successful concert run, but he unknowingly set another record that led to his death.
Jackson may be the only human ever to go two months without REM -- rapid eye movement -- sleep, which is vital to keep the brain and body alive. The 60 nights of propofol infusions Dr. Conrad Murray said he gave Jackson to treat his insomnia is something a sleep expert says no one had ever undergone.
"The symptoms that Mr. Jackson was exhibiting were consistent with what someone might expect to see of someone suffering from total sleep deprivation over a chronic period," Dr. Charles Czeisler, a Harvard Medical School sleep expert, testified Friday at the wrongful-death trial of concert promoter AEG LIve.
The symptoms documented by e-mails among show producers and testimony from his chef, hairstylist and choreographers included his inability to do standard dances or remember words to songs he sang for decades, paranoia, talking to himself and hearing voices, and severe weight loss, Czeisler said.
"I believe that that constellation of symptoms was more probably than not induced by total sleep deprivation over a chronic period," he testified.
Propofol disrupts the normal sleep cycle and offers no REM sleep, yet it leaves a patient feeling refreshed as if they had experienced genuine sleep, according to Czeisler. Below, his former record promoter John Dote' shares his moments with Jackson on the CBS News with Alyson McCarthy on the day of his death just moments later at his residence in Las Vegas.

PART 2...They went to Terry York Rolls Royce dealership in L.A. to purchase a brand new Rolls Royce which was white and they tied a bow and placed it on the hood of the car. They drove it back to Jackson's home and they invited Catherine Jackson out to the driveway to give her a mothers day gift. But she did not like the color. So they drove back to the dealership and picked out a red Rolls. When they presented it to mother Jackson she was ˇ°thrilledˇ±.

Watch the CBS live interview with John Dote' and Alyson McCarthy filmed at Dote's on channel 8 CBS NEWS. It was during the 80's when Dote' had produced t.v. themes including Dynasty and Dallas and struck a deal with Michael's father Joe Jackson to promote the "BAD" album on Epic Records. Michael and John became close friends. They spent quite a bit of time at the Jacksons residence in Encino, California. During that time on mothers day, John and Michael wanted to surprise Michael's mother.
