    A whole lot of middle aged women are going to be very sad.

    The Freedom video is one of the greatest ever.

    Kind of ironic he passed away on Christmas, he wrote and then recorded with Wham! "Last Christmas" which I think is a great Christmas song that I look forward to hearing every year.

    RIP

    rest in peace George Michael, I busted many a move to your music and for that I'm grateful.

    Elton John once berated him, as a friend, for his heavy drug and alcohol abuse back in the late 80's because it was impacting his voice. He said something like God gave you a gift that no one else has may ever see again and you're throwing it away.

    Great talent, but sounds like another tortured soul whose self-abusing lifestyle led to an untimely death. Sad. RIP

    I was more saddened to learn in this thread that the "Sports Machine" icon had passed. That's how I got my news as a student in DC in the 90's.

    It's not over yet...and I have a feeling more people are going to die in 2017.

    I lived just outside of DC from 1978-1984 and George Michaels was my sports God. I didn't know he had passed either.

    I used to watch him on D.C. TV, too, right around that same time when I was working for the Norfolk-Va Beach daily rag. Big fan.

    I didn't realize he had died, either, until I Googled last night.

    I realize this thread is about the other, more-famous George Michael, but since we're talkin' about him, how 'bout a little love for his namesake.

    I won't post the videos here due to language, but every scene that mentions George Michael in the movie Keanu is incredible.

    Great scene.

    I laughed out loud at that scene

    This is our common ground. This is where we can agree on things.

    Good stuff. George Michaels's Sports Machine was a great source of sports info back in the day. And even before that, there was Bill Mazer's Sports Extra on WNEW out of NYC. Loved those guys and always looked forward to watching their shows.
