Joe Jackson was born on August 11 1954 in Burton-on-Trent, England, but grew up in the South Coast naval port city of Portsmouth.
In 1979 “Look Sharp” (containing the hit Is She Really Going Out With Him) was followed within a year by the very similar I’m The Man (containing the hit It’s Different For Girls) and in 1980 by the darker, more reggae-influenced Beat Crazy. At the end of 1980, drummer Houghton decided to quit, and Joe decided to dissolve the band and try something new.
“Jackson has continued to evolve, turning out pop, jazz, movie scores, and original classical compositions.”
