I hate to say it but good, I hope it knocks some sense into him before he kills someone/self.

I hate to say it too, but you are totally right.
George Michael, the singer, is above most other artists by far.
But Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, the man, is not above any laws.
I just hope this will make him open his eyes and take care of himself... and if he doesn't want to take care of himself, he still needs to take care of others :no:

I love his music and I have liked him for soooo long.... it's really sad see him going down this way.

:(

It was George Michael Day on VH1 yesterday (nothing like a spell in jail to remind the music channels of someone!). His MTV Unplugged was on. To my mind it's still the best live performance of any artist I've ever seen.

It's vocally sublime.

bittersweet

This is one of his best and one of THE best live performances ever.
His voice.
Amazing.


....

and on the dark side, "Sony Music and George Michael's management have decided to postpone the release of the re-mastered "Faith" album."

I don't like the re-release of old material at all, but it's sad things are going this way :(

It is indeed one of the best live performances ever.
Can't top that evening, it was brilliant. Pure magic happening there.

I wish MJ did an unplugged set too, just once. It would've been so amazing.

One of the 80's best pop albums has recieved the deluxe treatment. 1987's (same year as MJ's Bad) Faith and one of George Michael's greatest albums is out Monday. It's out here in Ireland as of last Thursday. I came across it in a music shop lastnight. Looking forward to getting this one.

Why do people say artists like George or MJ are under-rated and apply it to being in a minority group?

George has had a career spanning 25 years and has sold tens of millions, so where is he under-rated.

Apart from that, you're right. I think he may have the best voice of all my favourite artists.

Anyone like 'Decemember Song? One of the best songs he's produced in years, and the most beautiful video to accompany it. What an incredible voice he has.It's got that classic George Michael melancholy, yearning sound on it and one of the most beautiful melodies I've heard in a long time.

I have to say I got really angry the other day when I saw this post of George on his FB page :angry:

“I absolutely wanted to be in the same stratosphere as [Prince and Michael Jackson]. I’d gone from a couple of years before, with being perfectly happy with being on Top Of The Pops to thinking, ‘I can do what Michael Jackson can do’. I mean he’d just done Thriller!” George Michael in conversation, Faith 2011

"Just" Thriller??
LOL!!!! One could also say he has only done Faith.

He meant just as in recently, not just as in only.

It might be, but still Thriller was not just Thriller, was it? :mello:

You don't get it. He'd 'just' made Thriller as in I've 'just' had breakfast.

Not meaning that I've only ever eaten breakfast as in that's the most recent thing I've done.

George is back.

New single for Comic Relief (Cover of New Order's True Faith), new album, new tour (with a twist, whatever that means)

He was interviewed by Chris Evans for BBC Radio 2 and the first part of their conversation along with the single has been premiered this morning. Tomorrow we're in for some exciting announcements - tune in at around 8.30 am UK time

He's also on twitter now - www.twitter.com/georgemichael

I guess that's totally puzzling. And to be honest, so useless! :no:
