I feel quite stirred by Wacko Jacko, says spoon-bender Uri
By Neil Michael

Spoonbender Uri Geller has lent his legendary psychic skills to help out pop star Michael Jackson.

The pair struck up a friendship after being intorduced by Harrod’s boss Mohamed Al Fayed. Jackson was so taken by Geller that he asked him to help out with his new album.

Uri said : “He asked me to draw something for his album. I believe my drawing will appear in the sleeve notes. It was amazing to see him record. I even touched the reels. I energised them. I really hope that this will be the biggest record ever.

“I think he has a gift from God – an incredible projection, an aura around him.”

The two have since sealed their friendship with an exchange of what Geller described as “special gifts”.

He gave Jackson a “stone of peace” from Mount SInai and Jacko gave him a bottle of his own brand cologne.

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”
