    Wham! George is dead.

    Sorry could't resist with the title. 555

    https://www.theguardian.com/music/20...tar-dies-at-53

    Bit of a shock, and the statement "They said the death was being treated as “unexplained but not suspicious” and they would not comment further until after a postmortem." raises a few question?

    Heart failure. Still a shame. Always seemed destined to go early though. Listen Without Prejudice one of my favourite ever albums... not really a big fan up until that point...

    It's a shame I was and still am a fan of his music.....very talented artist.

    50 something is just too young and yet these talented people who have everything keep falling into the same trap of self destruction.

    Whatever his sexual orientation, a fabulous singer with a superb voice.

    Poor taste Pabs, poor taste. You come over as some redneck homophobic in so many of your posts.

    Sorry Roger.

    I have self-censored the posting, and I'll try and tone things down from now on.

    I didn't used to be this way, something in these past eight years....? Lol

    Hugely gifted and talented but he seemed like a really down to earth, humble approachable guy anytime I've heard him interviewed and he didn't ever seem to be pretentious or showbizzy.

    Wrote Careless Whisper at 17 apparently, mad.

    I was thinking that today...
    If he was only 53yrs old, then he had to be going as shit when Wham came out

    Careless Whisper one of the most recognizable songs ever

    I love the fact when charged with a lewd act in the US, that instead of hiding or denying it he couldn't be shamed for being himself and said

    "You only have to turn on the television to see the whole of British society being comforted by gay men who are clearly gay and so obviously sexually unthreatening. Gay people in the media are doing what makes straight people comfortable and automatically, my response to that is to say I'm a dirty filthy fucker and you can't deal with that, you can't deal with it."
