Jackson's drug use started after Pepsi commercial, attorney says

The list of potential witnesses in the wrongful-death case is guaranteed to bring out the paparazzi and gossip traffickers. Jackson’s mother and father, siblings and other relatives -- close to 20 Jacksons in all -- are expected to testify. So are Michael Jackson’s children.

Also on the witness lists are performers Diana Ross and Prince; Quincy Jones, who produced Michael Jackson's “Thriller” album; filmmaker Spike Lee; Jackson's former wives, Debbie Rowe and Lisa Marie Presley; AEG owner Anschutz; and one-time Hulk Lou Ferrigno, who was Jackson’s trainer.
