OK, so this is the rumour I was trying to legitimize, but I have been unableto do so as yet: According to a Dallas Texas publication--The Met--Georgewas spotted (photographed ?) holding hands with another man in Dallas' TheMansion.

I think George's hair is fine as it is. His little trick is working. Usfan's aren't really supposed to be focusing our attention on his hair as wedid in the Faith period. He wants us to be concentrating more on hissongwriting. But don't worry, his hair can grow back when he needs it likeon special events when either the whole world is watching (Freddie concert,trial), or when the Princess of Wales is there (CFH).

(Sorry, the Caesar gots to go, but yes, he does like to grow his hair backfor really major events. AG)

Hello everybody!

Concerning the ∆ symbol in George Michśl you might think it is somethingspecial - and it is. It is a danish letter. You can get any version you likefrom my board: http://www.winart.dk/gmhtm.gm.htm

(I highly recoomend this site BTW. AG)

Anyway the story of George using the ∆ is as follows:
Once upon a time he recorded an album called "FAITH". Most parts of thisalbum were recorded in a danish recording studio called "PUK". (BTW: The sameplace Elton John recorded a few records). George saw the letter here anddecided to use it as sort of trademark in his own name. So thatīs thestory...

(I guess Faith was just mixed at Sarm West in London then, but great storyall the same! Thanks for sharing!!! AG)

ALSO ON THE MYSTERIOUS--THOUGH NOT REALLY ANYMORE THANKS TO BO--∆:

With ref to your ∆. This is a normal character available in any True TypeFont. The Character number is 0198. To quickly type in the ∆ hold down your{ALT} key (to the left of the space bar) and whilst holding down the key typein the number 0198 on the numeric keypad. Just Like magic, when you lift youfinger off the {ALT} key it appears!!

(Just tried it, and yes it does, thanks Joanne! Make sure you use thenumeric key pad though! AG)

Lots of love.

AND THERE'S MORE:

I can tell all you IBM users that to get this symbol (∆)much easier than theother way (and I'm in no way saying your way sucks, but for those who arecomputer illiterate), just push and hold the key ALT and 0198 and Voila!Presto! You have the cool GM sign. ∆ ∆ ∆ ∆

GEORGE MICH∆L STORY:

After the show George performed in Pensacola, FL/USA, which was absolutelyfantastic!!!! I remember hearing an interesting story about his trip throughFlorida. It seems that while George was traveling, he passed a women on theside of the road, who was tending a flat tire. George made a point to havehis crew help her out. The woman was completely shocked to find out that itwas George's bus. Some people have all the luck....

(That's it, I'm borrowing a really pathetic car and breaking down on the nexttour... AG)

I know the show in Pensacola was added at the last moment and what I remembermost about the show on October 31, 1997, besides the great musicalperformance, was that the musicians all dressed up in Halloween costumes. Itwas terrific. Oh yeah, there's one other thing that sticks in my mind. Therewas a heavy metal person sitting behind me during the concert, he was in allblack, with long hair and drumsticks in hand. What was so funny was thatthroughout the really upbeat songs he seemed fairly bored, but when 'CarelessWhisper' began to play he really seemed to get into it. Pretty funny....: )

(OK, good story, but mind doublechecking the year... AG)

When in the world will MTV show the "Spin the Wheel" video! You know, sometimes I really think MTV is snubbing George because he doesn't fit into the"POP STAR" image anymore... he isn't one of those "Star People" anymore, nordo I think he really ever wanted to be.

(MuchMusic here in Canada has it in rotation, as does the rest of the world,excpet the US it seems. Sorry. And I think the problem is George might besnubbing MTV. But I do think that George DID want to be a pop star--seeabove for "your" song lyric. AG)
