  1. R. I. P. GREW UP LISTENING TO WHAM AND GEORGE MICHEAL., ” TALENT GALORE”.

  2. This man was one of the most talented and prolific songwriters in the biz with every song being a hit. I was listening to him today singing “Last Christmas” and I pondered if he was okay, since we’ve already lost Prince. Low and behold I return home from the movies to read online that he died today on Christmas. Lord, what else will happen by the end of this devastating year?

  3. 30 yrs ago I first heard George Michael in my household. My aunt is 10yrs older than me and had to babysit me quite often when I was a child. So all I heard blurring thru the speakers was George Michael and seldomly Michael Jackson. Her favorite of all time was George and alll the teenage girls during that time in the early 80s thought he was a hunk probably not knowing that he wanted nothing to do with a female. If u get my drift, here nor there that really doesn’t matter. What does matter is that boy made phenomenal music that I still here on the radio 30 yrs later and in my eyes with always be a musical icon and never will be forgotten! !!, George I personally want to thank you for the great music that I’ve been listening to for over 30 yrs from you blaring thru the house speakers. U will never be forgotten brotha! !!!!
