Default BBC is reporting that George Michael has passed.

Ex-Wham singer George Michael dies - BBC News

By my reckoning, this makes Madonna the last of the major '80s solo acts.

Fuck 2016 in its fucking ass. First David Bowie, then Prince, and now George Michael.

It is sad. I commented to my wife the other day in the car that "Last Christmas" by Wham is one of my favorite holiday songs... I don't know why, it just is.

Not quite the last of the major solos though... Phil Collins, Billy Joel, Sting, Janet Jackson, Lionel Richie, Cyndi Lauper, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Will Smith, Rod Stewart, Boy George, Elton John, Tina Turner, Kenny Loggins, Billy Idol, Alice Cooper, etc, etc. We've still got quite a few left.

It's crazy how many celebs are found to have been secretly very sad, despite having everything. Just goes to show that having a "perfect" life is no substitute for general contentment and choosing to be satisfied with or without all the benefits of wealth and popularity.

I can't imagine the feeling of going from basically being worshiped by the masses, to obscurity. It's got to be extremely difficult, especially with time.

Yesterday I was reading a moving tribute to George Michael from Tony Parsons.he wrote the first authorized biography of George .....bare(1991).in the tribute,Parsons points towards the 1997 death of George's mum Lesley from cancer .....as the start of George's downward spiral to the dark side(drugs,booze,etc).

Yeah, I mean at some level I guess the day to day shit normal people have to do *to stay alive* gives you some reason to keep doing it. It's kind of a self fulfilling prophesy.

If you had everything you'd ever need or at least mostly enough.. it would probably give you a lot of time to sit and get depressed.

I think some people are just born with a debilitating sensitivity.....far too fragile for this world.also creative genius and depression seem to go hand in hand at one point or another .it's having the right coping mechanisms in place that twart and ultimately defeat those impulses.that being said....it doesn't work for everyone.

I've got depression, some days are worse than others....but it sure ain't because I've got what I need!

Being sad because you have everything you could possibly want.

I'm sure its a mix of different things.. because I could be the richest person out there and then be like "I want a spaceship that shoots lasers!" and then I'd have something to work towards.

I wonder if many people get to the point where they feel they don't have to do ANYTHING anymore.. but I could see not NEEDING to do anything getting boring/depressing after a while.

I really don't think he was depressed because he "had everything". I think it was probably a multitude of reasons that became too much to bear over time.a very sad loss nonetheless.

Just ordered a copy of Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1. I'd forgotten how good a vocalist he really was.

I'm waiting for my faith (1987) 2 cd/DVD special edition and songs of the last century (1999) cds to arrive.I needed those two to complete the studio albums George made......LWP vol 1 is one of George Michael's finest albums,still sounds great 26 years later.
