George Michael’s Musical Career

George Michael Passes 12/25/16 Age 53

  • Yesterday, I was at a Christmas gathering actually laying down resting. I get up, look at my phone, the widget say George Michael dies – age 53. I could not of course believe. There was absolutely no knowledge that this extremely popular pop star had any health problems. I was lucky enough to grow up and exist in the time that many great musicians were becoming popular. And in fact I was in college at the time that the first vinyl copy of Wham’s Album (incl. Careless Whisper) was released. The duo of George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley hit number One with This album ” Make it Big”. The presence of Michael all over MTV created mass appeal. His voice, is no doubt, among the best ever coming out of Britain and The World.

Geoge Michael could do practically anything musical with his voice.  We know that he and Elton John sang the famed song ” Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me”. Hundreds will be remembered. Faith..Freedom..Songs that will go on forever.  There will always be a Careless Whisper for everyone.  Because almost everyone views his songs intertwined with their life as well.

Diversity was the key element with George Michael.   Few artists can write and sing songs of love  life, and the disco, and for many a college dorm.

Christmas Is The Time To Say “I Love You” – Billy Squier – 1981

One of my favorite Christmans songs by Billy Squier. with The MTV Staff!! This dates back to the 80’s as you can tell. Billy Squier had quite a diversity which included highly energized rock songs and cutting edge lyrics which were also heavy metal.

Alice In Chains – Jar of Flies

Hello Everyone,

Welcome back to the 90’s. To Alternative Rock. An era of rebellion and many surprises. This era produced many tremendous rock groups including Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Stone Temple Pilots. My favorite in this group was Nirvana. I believe they made such an impact. I just watched a video of the last days of Kurt Cobain-Last-Days. They were actually underdogs. When they became famous that was not what was most important to Kurt Cobain. Yet he was so consumed with drug addiction toward the end. He had a good marriage to Courtney Love(also-rockstar) but it was hard to stop his self destructive actions.

Then there was Alice in Chains. They were alternative but brought a whole different sound. There were far from my favorite band in the nineties. They were very loud and were basically heavy metal. Most similar to Stone Temple Pilot but loader. The then lead singer had a real mean sound but it gave them their distinctiveness.

  • Well here’s a case of liking the band after you see and hear them in concert. They are truly great. I had here a whole album in addition to the Atlantic City recordings. This album “A Jar of Flies” I consider their best. It came out in 1993. It has their unforgettable songs and sounds. Check it out! Chris

    Layne Staley-Lead Singer – Passed in 2002

A Lesson With Jaco Pastorius

This is it. This is a great lesson for any bassist or guitarist. During this interview in the 80’s Jaco really gets the mesage axross on what is critial in 4 string bass and applies to guitar as well. Scales, harmonies, melodies, performance are all addressed here. This interview can give anyone a lifetime of information that is critical. Don’t miss!!!

Prince Vs Michael Jackson- Part 1

Not to take the light off of Prince here. The idea is to give a history of Prince and how he compared to Michael Jackson. A major difference is that Prince really tool care of his musical affairs by himself. He started out literally as a one man band whereas Michael certainly didn’t. Yet Michael was always the frontman. As you will see these two musicians were so talented they truly ruled the 80’s.
