    George Michael Passes

    2016 has taken yet another member of the entertainment industry. I just read on The New York Times, that singer George Micheal has passed.

    I wasn't a huge fan of his music, but it was nearly impossible not to hear him on Pop radio in the 80's. He had huge hits like "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go" as a member of Wham. His solo career produced hits like "Careless Whisper", "I Want Your Sex", "Father Figure", "Freedom", "One More Try", and others.

    Mr. Michael passed yesterday at his home in England. He was 53.

    Much too young, but he lived a very hard life (like most rock stars, or in his case, pop star).

    What a sad story. 53 is TOO YOUNG!!!!!

    I have to say I can't help but to think of him every time I drive past Will Rodgers Park across from the Beverly Hills Hotel. Its not to take away from his music which I like a lot (I've got Faith in my iTunes right now) but its still kinda funny to me.

    I think it might be closer to hilarious than funny.

    But yes, much too young.
