No word is strong enough to describe the way I feel for more than 24 hours now... just can't help but crying when hearing his songs...
If only it could be just a nightmare !

So sad. Like many here, this doesn't come as a complete surprise and I have been dreading this day for a while now.

Funny how things get mis communicated. Initial reports had Nile Rodgers saying George looked unwell when he visited him two days ago at his home, but he clarified he was at his Hampstead address filming his contribution to the documentary and George wasn't there. His tweet to Mark Ronson suggests Mark has recorded his bit as well. And again, reports of an intended album in '17 to be produced by Naughty Boy, coming off the back of the producers wish to get him on a track.

Locals seemingly had spotted him around Goreing over the last few months. Wonder if we'll ever get the whole truth surrounding his passing and goings on over the last few years. Such a loss. One can only be comforted in that his tortured soul will have finally found some peace.

Although not terribly surprised, I am still shocked. He has to die on Christmas, no less. Last Christmas is never the same to me.

George's passing has been the headline news on all the major networks here, CNN, New York Times, NBC etc, which is kind of surprising to me given he had not been active for a long time in the US. I have been reading lots of tributes to our George on the net. It is kind of comforting as George would probably like to know that he has been loved.

Dear George: RIP, You have been loved.

Terribly saddened by his passing. Apparently Fadi found him dead in bed on Christmas morning.

But I can't help feeling we kind of knew it was coming. Just look at all the threads where we discussed the last few years of his life. I just wish there was something we could have done, but it is what it is
We'll miss you George...

I am sadly touched and delirious... so many emotions and feelings... From loving, to crying, to dancing to slumping into the couch, and then wailing...

Crying on and off since the news. Had a long crying/releasing shower... and also just hyperventilated for about an hour while watching videos. *sigh*

But most of all, feeling and living and spreading the LOVE. And it's overwhelming!
Ooooh George. Love to you... love to all.

No words, just tears.

I wish I could have helped you. I wish I could have talked to you. But I did not know you. Not at all. I've known only "just" your unique creative work, "just" the public artist, "just" one of the best (and most underestimated) songwriters ever, "just" the greatest male voice in pop business, "just" the man, who halways HAD to be beautiful, smart and elegant, driven by the expectations and projections of all of us.

But: I did not know you, Georgios Kyriakos Panagiotou. What was is like to be George Michael, what was it like to be, to have to be George Michael, especially in the last years? I do not dare even to guess ...

"Do you think we have time?" you performed as a mantra in "Praying For Time" talking about you and your life - and teaching us a lot. No. We do not have endless time. We can only pray, that time and life do not elapse. When you sung it with the last power within you, the last time in front of me, of my wife and parents in Vienna 2012, I felt, that it was a farewell. I knew it.

Goodbye George, thank you for everything.
May your soul and spirit find finally eternal peace. I do pray for it.


"These are the days of the open hand
They will not be the last
Look around now
These are the days of the beggars and the choosers

This is the year of the hungry man
Whose place is in the past
Hand in hand with ignorance
And legitimate excuses

The rich declare themselves poor
And most of us are not sure
If we have too much
But we'll take our chances
Because god's stopped keeping score
I guess somewhere along the way
He must have let us alt out to play
Turned his back and all god's children
Crept out the back door

And it's hard to love, there's so much to hate
Hanging on to hope
When there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above say it's much too late
Well maybe we should all be praying for time

These are the days of the empty hand
Oh you hold on to what you can
And charity is a coat you wear twice a year

This is the year of the guilty man
Your television takes a stand
And you find that what was over there is over here

So you scream from behind your door
Say "what's mine is mine and not yours"
I may have too much but i'll take my chances
Because god's stopped keeping score
And you cling to the things they sold you
Did you cover your eyes when they told you

That he can't come back
Beacuse he has no children to come back for

It's hard to love there's so much to hate
Hanging on to hope when there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above say it's much too late
So maybe we should all be praying for time"

Finally able to log on to forums... Couldn't believe when I saw the news, and it was just horrible hearing it over and over again on the radio. The person you have loved and cared for and hoped the best for, is announced dead on the radio. That beautiful smile has passed, how can it be possible?!

I cried the whole day, now just feel numb. I honestly did not see this day coming yet, as he was making new music I thought I would see him live at least once more! I personally have not appreciated the previous discussions of his "bad condition", why he is not releasing new music and now possible speculations for reasons of death. I do not care what he died of, I am just trying to understand the news still. Horrible ending to his and his family's Christmas, and horrible ending to my Christmas.

I wish the best to all the GM forum members, hope we can all support each other. His music will live on, I will miss him from the bottom of my heart and soul and hopefully one day I can listen to his music without crying. I will always love you Georgios: <3.

The musical love of my life. Nobody will ever come close.

I'm devastated but thankful I was able to see him perform so many times.

RIP George, your talent will live on forever ������������������

I don't even know where to begin, or even say. My heart is broken,and so devastated, as I know, many of you are over this loss. He was a great , kind and gentle man. A man who made you laugh, love and cry at times. He gave so much of himself to others that some times he lost his way from who he was. I am with every one in sadness, grief and loss. My heart goes out to all of you. He went home to the ones he missed so much. Quiet and peaceful. He will live forever in my heart and my memory forever and always. I am so sorry.

PEACE & LOVE
