    Sad news last night, 2016 can really bugger off, far too many celebrities taken too young.

    I saw him a earls court mid/late 80s, he was very good live. my seat was right next to Boris Becker and his girlfriend at the time, tall black women with a real nice backside that she wiggled all night in front of me dancing to every song.

    Whenever i have seen him on tv recently, i always thought he looked ill, sadly it seems i was right.

    Yes he started off in a boy band, but he wrote some great tunes and sung some very good songs with other artists.

    He will be missed.

    53 is no age at all but he did look more and more frail each time he was in the public view since he had major health issues in 2013.RIP.

    It's very sad, I can't say I was a big fan, but he wrote some truly brilliant songs, particularly Jesus To A Child and most of all Father Figure, a song that has a personal significance to me and i'm sure a lot of others. RIP George.

    Another celebrity who has abused their body with drugs & or alcohol.

    That to me is called a junkie.
    Folk would nae feel sorry if that was to happen to some random who was begging in Princes Street.

    We are all flawed. And when we die there will always be somebody ignorant enough to concentrate only on the faults.

    I have my doubts that any of the junkies hanging around Princes Street have forked out 15k to pay for a couples IVF Treatment.

    My mother used to say "If you can't say something nice about a person, then say nothing at all".
    When it comes to obituaries, I totally agree with her.

    RIP George Michael - you were quality.
