Yes, he went into obscurity after Wham split. But he is alive and well.

WOW, I didn't know he passed until I read it here. The article said he died of heart failure. Sad

Not a major fan but always liked a couple tunes (Father Figure and I want Your Sex).

I thought he was older than 53. Sad to hear this.

RIP George!

This song is the first that came to mind when I read this news. Sad to hear this - 2016 has not been kind. Yog to his friends and biggest fans - will be missed.

Sad year for all the legends of music who've passed, no doubt.

Unfortunately, some people will say AIDS before the body even goes cold if the person in question was gay. It's like a knee-jerk reaction, sadly.
