At the age of 53 the singer who shot to fame with WHAM has died at his home.

Never been a year like this for famous people dying.

    No no no Ron!! Far too young :(

    What an awful year it's been, but he has to be one of the youngest.

    RIP George Michael.

    I can't believe that was his last Christmas :(

    My age...can't quite believe it!

    Also I have a soft spot for him as Wham were no.1 in the charts when both of my Daughters were born, Wake me up and I'm your man.

    I was brought up listening to Wham! Couldn't believe it when I saw it on the BBC news website at 3am this morning. What an appalling year for celebrity losses. I understand he had a heart condition and this was probably cardiac related. I feel so sorry for his partner who found him.

    George - thank you for the music. R.I.P.

    Turn a negative into a positive!

    Unlike Bowie, Cohen. Lake (and some musical others) this death really hit: I associate George and his music with one of the best times of my life, he coincided with my early 30s when I thought I had (and had found it) all. I was right and wrong all at the same time, not unusual that, is it? :wink:

    We were watching ITV news earlier and they reported the fact that some years ago he had crashed his huge car into a Snappy Snaps near his home; some wag had written WHAM in the dent to the front of the shop and we roared with laughter. I think he would understand that response.
