Hey all. I talked to my sister this afternoon and told her I'd be sending
the October 25th YOGMAIL--the one dedicated to her--and quoted her the last
tribute line: "My eternal love and thanks for truly changing the way I listen
to music" to which she proudly said "I sure did."

Hello all!

I just wanted to tell people that my son who is six, told me that he wants to
be a singer like George Michael! I was so happy to hear that. It would be
cool if someday he does make in the business, and he wins a award.When gets
up on stage he says his major infulence was George Michael!! I guess it is
nice to dream anyway. I just wanted share this with someone who would
understand my enthusim about my sons decision, I hope he sticks with it. So
far it looks good he wants to watch his videos and listens to his tapes all
the time,of course I don't mind.Well thanks for letting me ramble on.

(You ramble about your son all you want! Should he ever have a number one, I
hope I'll be able to score an autographed picture for my wall of fame. I
take great pride in the fact that my 13 year old niece spent a lot of last
summer with me and my friends listening to Madonna, and she regularly
lectures her friends on who George Michael is too... AG)

Thanks again Amanda for putting all this together, I know you have heard it
before but it is really appreciated.

I'm going to go to California for Christmas after Las Vegas, could you tell

(We're hearing next year--likely the summer. AG)

keep up the great work
I'm a "vintage" George Michael fan. Yes, I started my journey through Whamdom
with Fantastic and the whole nine yards. I saw him back in Miami in '86 when
they toured the US. It was the first time I cried at a concert. He winked at
me or at least I think he did!:)

(You must mean 1985. I have yet to make eye contact with the man. I never
have cried. I did scream my vocal chords out at the Cover to Cover gig in
Toronto. AG)

I must confess I don't have "Older" yet because I was afraid I wouldn't like
it. I really enjoyed "Listen Without Prejudice" and if "Older" is a
contuniation of where he was musically then I'm sure I'll like it!

(Older is a bit darker and more orchestrated than LWP. AG)

Is he still seeing Kathy or is that over?

(Long over. AG)

It's nice to receive your message.

I've attached to George Michael's music since I was a teen. I respect him as
an outstanding musician and songwriter. He deserved that there are so many
people to support and love him.

Just want to share this with you, Dick Leahy Music is George Michael's music
publish company. It can be found on the WWW by searching for "Dick Leahy
Music" under entertainment.

(Thanks for the tip. AG)

Thanks for the information to all who are involved with YOGMAIL.

You truly are quite informative with regards to THE MAN... GEORGE MICHAEL.

For those of you who are not in the know... sometime in December George will
be performing on MTV Unplugged... check your local listing for time and date.

(December 10th at I believe 9pm in the US. AG)

Otherwise YOG... as always keep me in the know of our favorite SUPERSTAR.

Although its true that we americans are in fact fanatical about jeans...there
are some of us who appreciate the finer linens in life.

(Here here!!! Out with the Levi's, and in with the Versace and Armani!! AG)

I must admit that OLDER...although good... did not fully express, in my
thoughts, the George Michael we have all grown to Love. I believe this is
due to all the stress and frustration a talent and artist such as George
underwent when the Sony war commenced.

(I don't know about that... AG)

I hope to GOD that when George begins work on his new album... that he can
once again grasp the energy within his soul that has always made him the
talented Writer, Musician, Artist, Performer and Mega Superstar we all know
him to be.

Please do not view this as a critique on my part... rather see it as someone
who admires this man with such passion... as someone who has seen this man
live... conversated with him on two occassions and who... if I may be so
bold... feels that he is someone who's heart and soul becomes one and one
who is capable of reaching vocal tones that no man on earth can reach unless
they we in tune with elements or dimensions not of this earth... If you think
about the man's voice you all will agree... for a man... he's got a KILLER
VOICE... have any of you ever asked where does it come from?

(Killer voice indeed. God given talent I suppose. AG)

Needless to say... thank you for your time.

In light of the fact she spoke such kind words about George, we can forgive


(We shall indeed forgive her, for she now knows her crime... AG)

Where DOES his voice come from, anyways? What is known about his parents'
influence upon him as a performer. (Other than he was supposed to be a "very
upwardly mobile child.")

Hi friends,

I'm a big GM fan but unfortunately very new to the info available on him via
the internet, and as we all know, it's kind of hard to get information from
someone like, oh, say, MTV....

Can someone possibly outline what's coming up for George? Radio One,
Unplugged, tour? Dates possibly?

(I guess I could put something together this weekend. Or you can go back and
read the last few issues. But seriously, with all the dates to keep
straight, I'll run up a list and run it early next week. AG)

Hi all!

Everyone always talks about Melanie because she is also George's hairdresser.
Well I was just wondering what is the name and age of his other sister (or
sisters, whichever the case may be).

(There's one more sister: Yioda who's I think now 38. According to a Greek
pal, Yioda translates to "youth". From what I recall, she was a school
teacher, who ended up doing Wham!'s wardrobe. What she's doing now is beyond

Hi everyone! Hi Amanda! =0) I just wanna say that I do love Madonna too and
I've notice some similarities between the two especially the way they make
music and how they both matured in musical composition at about the same
time. For example, You'll See has that Spanish style thing and so does Jesus
To A Child.

(There is a general trend to go with Spanish music, but George and Madonna
are doing it best. AG)

They also both have similar styles and personalities. But then maybe it's
just me. Does anyone else see some sort of similarities or something?

Hi Amanda

Just thought I'd let you know about this bit of gossip I heard on Radio One
in London this morning. Chris Evans the Breakfast Show DJ and is in the
process of setting up an interview with George (I think to coincide with the
transmission on the Radio One Concert). It is George's idea and he really
wants to do it - an hour long interview - but will only do it with Chris.
Chris said this morning that he would have assumed that "his" people (Radio
One) and George's people would make all the arrangements and let them both
know when it has been set up. But no. He said that no-one else had got
around to doing anything about it and that George's people want Chris to ring
George personally (he actually had George's phone no. in his hand !!!!) at
home and for the two of them to set it up themselves. Chris rang George
yesterday and is now waiting for George to ring him back to make the final
details. Watch this space.

(George is not a trusting man anymore... AG)

It pays to have a Walkman sometimes on the way to work. Will let you know
if/when I hear anything else.

I also heard yesterday that George (has or will) be doing an exclusive
interview with "The Big Issue" which is a magazine in London which the
homeless people sell in the street. They pay a small amount the for magazine
themselves and keep whatever they make on after that.

(So who's gotten a copy? AG)

I can't believe how much stuff he's doing at the moment - I can't keep up
with it all!

(Neither can I, and I'm supposed to be keeping you guys informed. AG)
****************************** writes:

To follow on from yesterday - Chris Evans rang George yesterday (like you
do!!!) and they apparently spoke for a while about the interview, but Chris
would not say much about it. It sounds as if it is definitely going to
happen, but even though Chris usually gives things away once he knows them he
is keeping quiet on this one - maybe on George's request. I would also think
it will be a radio interview rather than TV (Chris Evans does both), but time
will tell.

(If you're gonna do it, do it right... AG)

Will let you know any more info. Apologies if you have received ten million
other messages on this subject !!!!!!!!.

(You were the first to inform, so you will get full credit. AG)

I have George on my screensaver at work (the one of him from the Faith video
with his guitar, leather jacket and faded jeans (ooh stop it !!!!) and keep
getting comments in the region of "Oh no not George Michael" and the like. I
can't see the problem myself - it certainly keeps me at my desk.

(My screensaver is some song lyrics, but I love my wallpaper, it's a morph
shot mixing an old Wham! shot with the Older cover art that was a gift from
Maresh--he got it from the WEB. AG)

Also, What happened to the Texas flight attendant that he was seeing? Or did
I answer my own question.

"attractive" Thadeus. AG)

there any hope of obtaining a VHS copy of Wham! the final on video, either to

contacted most delaers in the Australiasian region only to find that it has

been delisted.

Wham! the final - Double Vinyl Lp (most 12 inch mixes)
Wham! Fantastic, Make it Big, Faith, and LWP - All Viny Lp's

(Well it's now 2am, so just a bit. My sincere thanks. AG)

I just got the new TV Guide and Rolling Stone magazine. First, in the TV
Guide it states that on Thursday November 14,1996 at 7pm(central time) the
MTV Europe Music Awards will air!!!!!!!! I was so happy to see this, if you
need a copy I will be more than happy to dub it for you!! Also, in the new
Rolling Stone magazine(November 28, 1996) there is a great new picture of
George singing at the MTV unplugged show(without the sunglasses). It is
under Random Notes, p.25 and Rolling Stone can be quite sarcastic at times,
but here is what it said:
"Just stop for a second-I'm not plugged in ," said George Michael. Uh,
will someone tell this man the point of Unplugged? At the London taping of
said MTV special, Michael covered Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me"
and performed "Everything She Wants," from his Wham! days. He was most
proud, however, of his natty dark suit. "Very sexy, isn't it?" asked
Michael. "I feel like Morrissey."

(No ego problem there George... AG)

I hope you are happy with this news, I know I am.

(Very happy indeed! AG)
