Radio played many if his songs today. Was good to hear some of those older songs. I was young when they came out. You are missed George.

2016, thats enough now. Let the last 5 days bring some peace already.

So many notable deaths in the music world this year, and here's yet another.


Rest in peace, George. Great musical memories.

i've seen this "meme" going around on instagram, along with other similar meme's, yesterday and today. seriously...too soon. just a little bit bad taste, just my opinion of course. but it's sort of a joke and he just died. maybe we should let him rest a little before the jokes start.

i was a big fan of george. i loved pretty much every one of his songs. he was the same age as me. this makes me really sad. i remember back in the day, the 80's!, thinking he was so cute.

Yes this is true. Say if Neil Patrick Harris would die say from a car accident or even cancer sure enough there would be those who would scream that he had died from AIDS and of course the National Enquirer would do a story about Harris "having HIV" or whatever even if false and people will still believe it. Honestly why would the family of a deceased celebrity would even bother mentioning why they had died since people will believe what they want. Heck there are still those who really believe that Prince had died from AIDS even though that was false.

My favorite is his cover of Stevie Wonder's They Won't Go When I Go. Listen Without Prejudice Vol 1 is a truly underrated masterpiece.
