Re: George Michael Dead.

Standby for some George Michael "Last Christmas" jokes which whilst not appropriate, neither was he.

It's a funny old world that's for sure.

Re: George Michael Dead.

Last christmas, he'd knackered his heart

by the end of the day, he'd faded away...

next year, we'll not hear his cheer

cos he's gone some place dreadful (dreadful) Funny

Re: George Michael Dead.

He recorded some great songs. One of my favourite is A Different Corner.

Re: George Michael Dead.

Was that a reference to the corner of the Snappy Snaps shop he hit when driving under the influence? (On which some joker wrote "Wham!")  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/picturegalleries/celebritynews/8002712/George-Michael-his-life-caree...

I was never a fan of Wham! or his later work, but 53 is too young to die.  RIP.

Re: George Michael Dead.

Young and RIP indeed but jeepers main stream media, give this news some rest as well. Put it to the vote and they'd make him into the saint he never was - and ain't that the truth.

Re: George Michael Dead.

I have no wish to be disrespectful to his memory or to his many fans, but...

I was never a fan of Wham or the later career of George Michael. I think he may have been very lucky to have been around at the right time in the right place (you can read into that whatever you wish)

A genius? - as I've heard him described -

Even if he was - which I doubt - does he warrant six pages in today's Daily Mail. Must be a slow news day.

Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: George Michael Dead.

 It's more of a slow news period than a slow news day with the guy still making it across the board - which is just bizarre.

Successful, popular, and decent singer songwriter sure but a genius along with his fake tan absolutely not, and to be called one by the media along with his Luvvy contemporaries and fans just demeans the term in very much the same way Christmas has been demeaned by hype, greed and commercialism.

Anyways, 2017 around the corner and then it's back to some sort of reality - but don't count on it, the Easter bunny is on its way. At least the new year is real with no hype needed. Just bring a bottle!
