The abortive bailout was led by Goldman Sachs and included two others -- Charles Koppelman and Alvin Malnik.
A veteran music executive and investor, Koppelman and a partner had lost out to Jackson in the 1985 auction in which the performer acquired the Beatles catalogue. As Jackson's putative adviser, he recruited Goldman.
Florida entrepreneur Malnik, meanwhile, has been dogged for years by rumored mob ties. As a young lawyer in the ‘60s, he represented mob boss Meyer Lansky. “Heir apparent,” Reader’s Digest dubbed him when Lansky died in 1983.
