Joe Jackson born in Staffordshire in the year 1954. But he grew up in England. His father was a British Navy man. Just at the age of 11, he realized that he had interest in music and so started learning violin. And when he was just the age of 15, says Jackson, "I knew that I was a musician. There wasn't really nothing I could do about it." Although he started off learning to play the violin but later took to piano. When he was 16 years old, he started playing in bars. After some time, at the age of 18, he won a scholarship to study musical composition at London's Royal Academy of Music. But did not want to become a serious composer and so he moved on towards pop and rock. So Joe Jackson used to play in bands, he says "I was just interested in everything, trying everything,"

After he graduated, Joe took on various gigs and later formed the group Arms & Legs that earned him his first record contract in 1976. But after two unsuccessful singles, the group collapsed. So he started playing in the cabaret circuit to make money so that he can record his own demos. But lady luck smiled upon him when in the year 1978 a producer heard his tape. He was very much happy with Joe and so signed him to A&M Records. The album "Look Sharp!" was recorded straight away, which was released in the year 1979. After the success of the album, next came "I'm the Man" and "Beat Crazy" in the year 1980. Not only this, in reggae crossover he collaborated with Lincoln Thompson.
