George Michael Dead 12/25/16

can't say I was a fan, even in his heyday. But most of the girls I dated back in the day were.

Same here. I liked a few of his songs but back in the day, he was very popular.

He was quite the show man live. Always loved this song. Specifically the lyrics.

I was a huge fan of Wham! and Michael in the 80's. RIP.

I remember that whole gay controversy that made him come out.

George Michael gave us this video for Freedom '90 and for that I am ever grateful.

He had a beautiful voice. George Michael

I just posted on my FB wall that I've always said this was the best music video ever made.

Re: George Michael Dead 12/25/16

Sad that he passed on Christmas, considering he wrote one of my least favorite Christmas standards, "Last Christmas".

Other than that, I thought he was a heck of an artist. He performed much of his album Listen Without Prejudice, Volume One himself, and it's always been one of my top 10 favorite albums. I've always considered it an underappreciated work.

I cannot fucking believe that 2016 managed to kick us in the nuts once again. I loved George Michael's music. Great songwriter and performer. 2016 needs to fuck off and die already.

With the way 2016 has went for 80's Music Icons, I hope Madonna and Janet Jackson are somewhere safe right now.

This is crazy. Amazing artist. One of my favorite artists to spin in my DJ days.

Re: George Michael Dead 12/25/16

As a child of the 80's who grew up with MTV, most of the singers who dominated that decade have died prematurely:

Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Prince and now George Michael.

Re: George Michael Dead 12/25/16

Wasn't a major fan, but liked some of his stuff (probably more than I was willing to admit to anyone at the time ) Regardless, I'm saddened by his passing and curse 2016 for taking another artist/celebrity/talent from us.

Can't wait for the eBay and Amazon prices to spike.

Enjoy what you do.

Dear 2016: Fuck. You. Another tragic loss, and on Christmas, too. Nothing is off limits for the grim reaper, especially this year.

Was never a Wham fan, but loved his solo stuff. Agree about Freedom '90 - the best video of all time. Such a clever and artistic reaction to the MTV idol-making machine of the time.

Great voice. I went to one of his gigs sometime back in the 90's.
