George Michael will be remembered for his work as a prominent gay rights
campaigner as well as for his glittering pop career.
The performer had been a fervent support of LGBT issues.
George Michael, who has died aged 53 of heart
failure, was Britain’s biggest pop star of the 1980s, first with the pop duo
Wham! and then as a solo artist. After Wham! made their initial chart
breakthrough with the single Young Guns (Go for It) in 1982, Michael’s
songwriting gift brought them giant hits including Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go
and Careless Whisper, and they became leading lights of the 80s boom in British
pop music, alongside Culture Club and Duran Duran. His first solo album, Faith
(1987), sold 25m copies, and Michael sold more than 100m albums worldwide with
Wham! and under his own name.
Michael remained a major figure in the music industry even when his
record releases slowed to a trickle in the later part of his career, and a
loyal fan base ensured that his concert tours always sold out. However, from
the late 1990s onwards he was beset by a string of personal crises and clashes
with the law caused by drug use. He had always felt ambivalent about the
demands of stardom, and found it difficult to balance his celebrity status with
his private life. After years of concealing his homosexuality, he eventually
came out in 1998, after being arrested for engaging in a “lewd act” in a public
lavatory in Beverly Hills, California.
He was born Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou in Finchley, north London. His
father was a Greek Cypriot restaurateur, Kyriacos Panayiotou, who had married
Lesley Angold, an English dancer. The family moved to Radlett in Hertfordshire,
and George attended Bushey Meads school, where he became close friends with
Andrew Ridgeley. The pair formed a ska-influenced quintet, the Executive, in 1979,
then in 1981 re-emerged as a duo, Wham!. They recorded some demos of their
songs (written by Michael), and were promptly signed by the independent label
