Little did Joseph and Katherine Jackson know when they started their family that they would give birth to the world's most esteemed dynasty, producing descendants so synonymous with pop primacy that the names of Michael, Tito, Marlon, Jermaine, Jackie, Randy and Janet are unmistakable as icons individually as well as part of the hallowed Jackson musical heritage. As nephews of King of Pop Michael Jackson, arguably the world's greatest entertainer, and sons of Tito, the second oldest Jackson brother, and the late Delores Jackson, they have inherited the ultimate pop music pedigree. 3T are part of that celebrated family tree.
When the boys were young, they appeared on TV and on stage with their famous uncles and aunts. Mean- while the boys were already imitating the Jackson brothers with brooms and mops and learning to play instruments by themselves. In 1985, (TJ aged 7, Taryll 10 and Taj 12) they were already offered a record deal.
Living up to their musical legacy, is second nature to "The Three T's" as their mother Dee Dee affectionately referred to her sons. The brothers witnessed first-hand the frenzy of the elder Jacksons' success, and the mega success of Michael and Janet. Yet they kept their show business aspirations to themselves during their formative years, absorbing a myriad of musical influences including the Jacksons, The Beatles, and Bread, focusing on sharpening their skills on piano, guitar, drums, bass and later computer equipment.
