Wham! Were brilliant. RIP.

(Fuck 2016. I’ll be glad when it’s over.)


#2

(Sorry. I didn’t realise that there was already a thread on the social board when I started this one.)

Horrible news. I wish this year could have ended ages ago. The worst year ever.

RIP George Michael

As much as I’m starting to find the whole “bugger off 2016” thing a bit tedious, I can’t deny that just the sound of “twenty-sixteen” has a certain eerie historical resonance to it already. And the year isn’t even over yet.

RIP George Michael, too. A real shock.

#7

One of the first celebrity deaths that really got to me was Joe Strummer, just before Christmas - James Brown too, iirc…


#8

yeah like Dimebag on Lennon’s anniversary, this came on James Brown’s.

Huge shock, and it feels a bit like some of my youth died with him.

My wife’s an enormous fan, so it’s been basically in mourning/celebration of George Michael aka “Horhay Miguel” as my wife calls him, ever since seeing the news on Sunday night,
