Only 53, same age as my wife. She told me about it from a facebook post. Was only
kidding her when I asked if this more of facebook spewing false news. She got mad
quickly and shoved her phone in my face. See its on CNN. Sorry my dear, just not use
to see you using the news.

Its Sad, another one gone, RIP.

My first reaction was that it was another celebrity death hoax.

The "Older" album gets me every time, a very talented twat.

I mentioned this on the Music board (I probably shouldn't have started a separate music thread, my mistake), if you were parking in the 80's (depending on what your girl liked to listen to), there's a good chance you were playing a little George Michael.

*Especially* with his 1987 album "Faith"...

If there's one year I wouldn't mind reliving would be 1987. What I have today is the next best thing...this Friday evening I'll be standing in front of a stage, arms wrapped around my Mrs. listening to our favorite 80's cover band (The Molly Ringwalds) playing a few of George Michael's songs, most likely including the above.

So yeah, it's an age thing, nostalgia runs deep.

The Bayou



The rusty wire that holds the cork that keeps the anger in
Gives way and suddenly it’s day again
The sun is in the east
Even though the day is done
Two suns in the sunset, hmph
Could be the human race is run

Never particularly cared for his music and disliked his personal behavior.

Kind of a non-event for me.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

What's interesting is that his personal behavior was probably no different from the vast majority of music industry celebs.

As for his music, I think he had a few catchy songs but I never actually bought any of his stuff (either Wham or solo).
