I've read in the Daily Mirror in the UK and it said that George Michael is quitting music. What does everyone think of that?

Well... I think he'll maybe ease down a little but don't think he will realy quit. In the past he has announced his retirement from the music scene as many times as Tina Turner did farewell-tours!

That's something I'd truly expect to hear from Robbie Williams.

George is a very talented guy. Too bad he's retiring, but I guess he has very good reasons why since he has mentioned recently that nearly the whole pop genre is dead.

Well, i don't care - he was massively overated in my opinion anyway. Not a patch on Joe Elliott.

I hope he isn't quitting all together... He is a favorite of mine. But, If it were true, I can't say It would be a surprise.

Mick Hucknall said the same about Simply Red 10 years ago and he's still going. It'd be a shame if George does what he says, but there'll always be his music - and I still love 'Patience' to death.


Yes, it's me. I'm back.

See, George retires, we all wish him well. John Deacon retires and we all keep asking the same questions!

George is a fave of mine and I hope he has a nice retirement. But how often has David Bowie 'retired' ????

My girlfriend and I are going nuts to have a chance to see Simply Red.

The problem is that he doesn't tour America that much. For the last tour to promote 'Home' he was playing here in NY the same day that my girlfriend had a class at night, and she couldn't skip it.

The article I read yesterday said that he wasn't quitting, but that he felt that the type of music he's been writing/performing in recent years is dead, and that he's going to change his musical direction and come back with something new. (That was in The Sun mind )!

After Faith, Spinning the Wheel and Fastlove I can't think of anymore George Michael songs I like.


Guess who's back?

He is making an album of gangsta rap. Because in the 69 his humpty nose will tickle your rear.

Remember one thing...

Great artists who announce retirement always have a tendency to come back for either another tour or another album. Such thing happened with Elton John, The Who, and Ozzy Osbourne.

On the other hand we have shit talentless artists who finally realize that their music is crap, and then they announce their break up. Like recently we've seen with Creed, Rage Against The Machine, and (crossing my fingers that she won't ever come back) Cher.
