Hi There dears!!!

This is a little message for all those who I probably won't get to see or

Do you know when GM new single will be released in the US?

(OH sure, now I have to check the archives...hang on a minute. Well , no
luck, which leads me to believe that Alan would be my hero if he could
forward me a list of release dates that I could put on my calender... AG)

If anyone is interested in getting the STW E.P. you might want to check
because yesterday I saw a copy in the "import" section.

I just want to thank you for your quick response of the mailing list. As a
new member it sure is great to see that there are others out there who can
appreciate a "REAL" musician. I know I will enjoy being a part of this
group. I wish I would have known about this 'Last Christmas', but I guess
better late than never.

all a Happy Christmas for many years to come. Once again, welcome! AG)

Happy Christmas,

was on MTV. I would gladly pay for a copy. Thanks.................E-MAIL me

I just heard on the radio the new version of "Last Christmas" by some
"funkies". Please... what have I done to deserve this!!! Singers this
hopeless shouldn't be allowed to live! It's just another testimony that GM is
light years apart from majority of other performers.

Hi Amanda,

Hope you are enjoying the holidays.

I know this is "old hat" already and you probably have seen this, but just in
case.... I saw this at the "CD Now" website in Music.News.Bytes

"Bryan Adams reportedly took backstage pot shots at George Michael during the
MTV European Music Awards held last week. According to the MSN Totally Live
News online wire, Adams was having a fit of "sour grapes" after losing the
Best Male Artist category to Michael, who lip-synched his hit "Star People"
during the show. Adams performed "The Only Thing That Looks Good on Me is
You" live with his band. TLN reports that Adams did not keep his discontent
to himself; instead he muttered "in an audible
voice" about Michael "miming the words" and allegedly made disparaging
remarks about Michael's sexuality. The service also reported a rumor that
Michael attempted to take a swing at the mouthy Adams, but was restrained by
bodyguards. Calls to Bruce Allen Talent Productions, the management firm
for Adams, were not returned. -- S.S. "

(George, I hope this is true. I think he deserved to be knocked into line.

Please feel free to trash this if it has already been posted or if you have
already seen this. I just thought that it would be very unyoggly of me not
to forward it!!!

(We've heard a bit, but this has some new info. Thanks for ...)

And what have you done
Another year older
